Just as Jimmy Kimmel decided to take a break from his late night talk show, audio in which he used racial slurs in the mid-’90s has resurfaced.
Kimmel is also under fire for impersonating Black celebrities, in blackface, in the late ’90s.
“On KROQ radio in the mid-90s, I did a recurring impression of the NBA player Karl Malone,” he continued, adding “In the late 90s, I continued impersonating Malone on TV.
We hired makeup artists to make me look as much like Karl Malone as possible.
I’ve done dozens of impressions of famous people, including Snoop Dogg, Oprah, Eminem, Dick Vitale, Rosie, and many others.
