Is the Jimmy Kimmel show cancelled?
Jimmy posted a video online where he announced that he would be “taking the summer off” to spend more time with his family.
He assured fans: “There’s nothing wrong, my family’s healthy, I’m healthy, I just need a couple of months off.”
Jimmy told fans on June 19th that the show would be on hold for two weeks, before a “variety of guest hosts” would take over.
This announcement comes weeks after his blackface scandal
Jimmy’s announcement that he is taking a break from the show comes shortly after he apologised for his use of blackface in the past.
The talk show host had received weeks of criticism in June about his use of blackface on “The Man Show,”, a Comedy Central series he starred in from 1999 to 2003.
Jimmy issued a statement where he apologised “to those who were genuinely hurt or offended by the makeup I wore or the words I spoke.”
