If you’ve ever had the unfortunate experience of watching a Hollywood award show, you may have noticed that when many of our favourite actors are not in character, they’re nothing but hypocritical, self-appointed moralizers. “Thank you for the award, and let me tell you about the social issue fad of the day.”
Jimmy Kimmel is just one example. During his opening monologue at the 2018 Oscars, Kimmel jumped on the #MeToo movement, calling it “long overdue.”
“We can’t let this bad behavior slide any more,” Kimmel said. “The world is watching us. We need to set an example…”
Ironically, prior to scoring his late night deal, Kimmel was the host of a highly-sexual program called ‘The Man Show,’ which included segments where women are told to grope Kimmel’s crotch to guess what’s down his pants.
In 2011, Kimmel’s late night program featured a skit where Kimmel, Tom Hanks and Ron Howard pretended to be fathers competing for the “Sexy Baby” awards, in which Hank’s daughter dances to Poison’s track Talk Dirty To Me.
Creepy or just innocent humour? You decide.
