Jimmy Kimmel Gets SLAMMED For “White Privilege” And “Stealing” Spotlight From Quinta Brunson In Emmy Skit

Jimmy Kimmel has faced harsh criticism online because many people feel that a skit he and Will Arnett did as presenters stole Quinta Brunson’s thunder.

At the Emmy Awards on Monday night, Arnett and Kimmel gave the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. As he explained that Kimmel had consumed too many margaritas backstage, Arnett dragged a “passed out” Kimmel onto the stage and laid him out next to the microphone stand. Even after Brunson jokingly yelled, “Jimmy, wake up. I won,” after Arnett announced her name as the winner and she took the stage, Kimmel kept up the joke.

As Brunson gave her speech, Jimmy sat extremely close to her, making it nearly impossible for the show’s producers to get a picture of her without him in it.
