Calgary Herald - - YOU -

Jimmy Kim­mel has apol­o­gized for a black­face TV skit in which he per­formed, as well as im­per­son­ations of other Black celebri­ties, in­clud­ing Oprah Win­frey and Snoop Dogg. He mim­icked Black bas­ket­ball star

Karl Malone on Com­edy Cen­tral’s The Man Show, which aired from 1999 to 2004. “I apol­o­gize to those who were gen­uinely hurt or of­fended by the makeup I wore or the words I spoke,” Kim­mel said. “I be­lieve that I have evolved and ma­tured over the last 20-plus years, and I hope that is ev­i­dent to any­one who watches my show.”
