A Video From 20 Years Ago May Cancel Jimmy Fallon’s Career For Good

Jimmy Fallon apologized after a resurfaced video of him wearing blackface sparked outrage on social media — although it wasn’t the first time the video had circulated online.

On Tuesday, a short video of the “Tonight Show” host impersonating Chris Rock in a “Saturday Night Live” sketch from 2000 went viral along with the hashtag #JimmyFallonIsOverParty on Twitter.

Fallon responded to the criticism in a tweet Tuesday evening. He said that wearing blackface was a “terrible decision” and “unquestionably offensive,” and he thanked those who condemned him “for holding me accountable.”

HuffPost reached out to “SNL” for comment, but did not receive an immediate response.

Before Fallon apologized, some people called for the comedian to be “canceled” due to the 20-year-old clip. Others said they’d prefer an explanation, an apology or even an acknowledgment of wrongdoing from Fallon.

“I wish, they do realize they have a 0% chance of even canceling him, right? This was 20 years ago and nowhere close to career-ending,” a user wrote.

Do you think Jimmy Fallon’s career should be canceled for this?
