Cancel Culture is coming for Jimmy Kimmel. The late-night talk show host has been under fire recently after an old interview involving him and Megan Fox resurfaced. While speaking with the actress in the video clip, Megan shares a story of how she was just 15-years-old when she was cast as an extra in Bad Boys II back in 2003. Filmmaker Michael Bay wanted her in the club scene but she was underage and couldn't sit at the bar. So, he reportedly had her don a bikini and high heels while standing under a waterfall. Kimmel was criticized for laughing off the story and dismissing the sexualization of a teen girl.
Then, Jimmy Kimmel was targeted once again after he was accused of imitating Black people in various comedy scenes of conversations. However, it was his song on KROQ radio station's Christmas album from 1996 that called for Kimmel to be canceled. In it, Kimmel raps on "Christmastime in the LBC," which is supposed to be a parody of Snoop Dogg. He spouts lyrics like "n*gga in the manger," "I told that motherf*cker Santa, bring a pick for my afro," and "fat n*gga in a sleigh giving sh*t away." The album was co-produced by Kimmel.
