Jimmy Kimmel’s show isn’t all THAT popular and now he’s going to call a black woman…no change that! An Oscar-winning black woman a furry beast on national television. Mo’Nique, as Jay-Z would say, really isn’t the one to try and score points off of. She has a platform at the helm of her very own night time talk show on BET too. So, he might wanna steer clear of her, especially when there could be a comment even mildly translated as racist targeted at her. She keeps it REAL! And that’s kinda where all of this controversy begins.
Barbara Walters had her pre-Oscar show the night before the Oscars. She interviewed Mo’Nique and she couldn’t rest the interview without asking about the hairy legs. While some in the black community don’t mind sporting hairy legs, there are still those who also wonder why she won’t shave them because of HOW HAIRY they are. But Jimmy Kimmel takes it one further by calling names. White comedians and their public are still not getting that there are some things that they cannot joke about when it comes to black folks. I’m sorry, but it just will never fly; no matter HOW MUCH they wanna push the envelope and have their way.
Check out his little jokey joke. Good luck with this one Jimmy:
