Jimmy Fallon Under Fire For Resurfaced ‘SNL’ Blackface Clip from 2000

Published: Tuesday 26th May 2020 by Rashad

The cancellation crew have their sights set on ‘Tonight Show’ host Jimmy Fallon as the actor-comedian is trending on Twitter thanks to resurfaced footage from ‘SNL’ that depicts him performing in blackface.

Details inside:

The clip, derived from an episode of ‘SNL’ that aired in 2000, shows Fallon with a painted face impersonating fellow comedian Chris Rock.  Engaging in the socially frowned upon practice of ‘blackface,’ the sketch’s resurfacing over Memorial Day weekend has led to the hashtag #jimmyfallonisoverparty going viral.

While some have used the hashtag to draw attention to reports he nor ‘SNL’ have never publicly apologized for the skit, others question the validity of the cancellation attempt overall.

    Everyone needs to go back to work and school now.

    Y’all ain’t got shît to do.

    Why is everyone bring out old content. He was famous during that time too. Why didn’t you cancel him when it actually happened?!?

    Coming for people with 3 decade year old receipts is just unproductive and lacks the ability to allow people to grow.

    If this was recent sure go for it. Or if they are just becoming famous I get it but Fallon has been relevant for years. Why now?

    @clarkson don’t play stupid. You know the history of black face is done by whites making fun of blacks.

      Dont be stupid.

      Black face is wrong whether it’s a white person or black person doing it

      If beyonce is black, they why does she need to paint her face black?

      Beyonce was paying tribute to an african musician and she painted her face jet black
      . That’s disgusting as f**** and problematic.
      Colourism is a big problem in the african community

      everybody on twitter pretending they are not seeing the pictures.
