How did Jimmy Kimmel end up being reported to the police if Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars? Well, here is an unexpected story with Kimmel, US politician Marjorie Taylor Greene and another joke.
The 47-year-old host did the unthinkable - he joked in his show and was proclaimed a "threat of violence."
The only thing we think should be reported is the overuse of Will Smith's behavior during the Oscars. Other than that, many Twitter users saw this for what it was - a joke, and Kimmel responded:
The story started after Greene tweeted that the GOP said Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Mitt Romney were "pro-pedophile" for admitting they would vote to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court.
Kimmel showed no mercy, calling Green, the Georgia rep, a "Klan mom," adding she was "especially upset" fellow Republicans' decision to confirm Jackson. By the way, congrats to Ketanji Brown Jackson!
After Kimmel said:
"Wow where is Will Smith when you really need him, huh?"
Green then tweeted that she reported the host to the police.
Here is the clip, and we are begging you to end the attacks on comedians! Especially with this intriguing back story.
Greene continued tweeting:
Capitol Police are yet to respond to requests for comment.
