Jimmy Fallon Apologizes For Resurfaced ‘SNL’ Blackface Sketch on ‘Tonight Show’

Published: Tuesday 2nd Jun 2020 by Rashad

A week after taking to Twitter to lend an apology after a resurfaced ‘SNL’ comedy sketch that saw him portray fellow comedian Chris Rock while donning blackface went viral again (as we reported here), ‘Tonight Show’ host Jimmy Fallon is using his current platform to ensure fans know his true stance on the offensive matter.

As conversations ignited around race are at the forefront in America at the moment, Fallon used Monday night’s episode (June 1) to discuss the controversy surrounding the ‘SNL’ clip and social injustice overall (i.e. ongoing protests against racial inequality, police brutality, and more).

Opting to skip his usual comedic monologue, the EMMY-nominated late night talk show host tapped guests Don Lemon and NAACP President Derrick Johnson to have an emotional yet open discussion about the topic.

    He wasn’t playing a black stereotype and that’s the difference people have spoken about in his defense. I do, however, understand why others feel like blackface should never be used in any form of entertainment.
