Kimmel says he'll end feud with Hannity: The vitriol 'does nothing good'

Irene MckinneyApr 09, 2018

Kimmel also wrote: "whilst I admit I'd have pleasure with our little forth and back, following some idea, I realize that the level of vitriol from all sides (mine and me contained) does nearly nothing beneficial to anybody, actually, is harmful to our country". "I most certainly did not intend to belittle or upset members of the gay community and to those who took offense, I apologize", the host of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" said in a statement Sunday.

Kimmel, meanwhile, also came under fire from many LGBTQ rights advocates Friday when he used similar allusions to gay sex in tweets directed at Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Calling his impression of the First Lady a "silly aside", Kimmel said he was wrong to target her for a joke. He proceeded to mock her accent, enraging Hannity, who took to Fox News Wednesday to call Kimmel a "despicable disgrace".

Soon Hannity dropped the "Jr." part and began suggesting that Kimmel was in fact identical to Weinstein: "And you kissed the ass of Obama and Hillary for years Mr Weinstein".

It comes after Hannity, during his show on Friday, rolled a series of Kimmel clips, which were mostly from the comedian's days as a co-host of Comedy Central's The Man Show.

Kimmel fired back at Hannity with more crude jokes, eventually accusing the Fox News host of hypocrisy.

On Friday, Hannity called Kimmel "Harvey Weinstein Jr." and played footage of Comedy Central's "The Man Show", that showed Kimmel asking women to find something hidden in his trousers while he wore a fake erection.

After that, the war moved back to Twitter with Kimmel intimating that Hannity has a crush on the President, and even describing their preferred lovemaking positions.

Kimmel also said that he hoped Hannity's "newly found" advocacy for women, immigrants and First Ladies would be reflected in his public commentary in the future. "Why don't you rant a little about that, Sean Hannity?". A comedy bit, referenced in Hannity's tweet, that Kimmel was a part of almost 15 years ago when he co-hosted Comedy Central's "The Man Show".

Kimmel, on Twitter, thanked Hannity for a trip down memory lane.

Kimmel responded to the criticism on Thursday's show by calling Hannity an "ass circus".

The Day by day Beast's Ira Madison III additionally wrote that if Kimmel "truly cared about homosexual folks [he] wouldn't resort to clichéd jokes" about homosexual intercourse.
