Jimmy Fallon’s past just caught up with him. The talk show host is under fire for a Saturday Night Live skit he did 20 years ago. In the clip, Fallon is impersonating comedian Chris Rock. The video has the caption, “NBC fired Megan Kelly for mentioning blackface. Jimmy Fallon performed on NBC in blackface.”

Since making its way online, the video has stirred up a lot of discussion, and #JimmyFallonisover is trending on Twitter. Some are calling out the comedian for being insensitive, and some pointing out that the video should be excused because it is 20 years old.

There are also people calling out the “cancel culture” as a whole, primarily because, as of late, many celebrities, including Lana Del Ray and Doja Cat, have quickly been “canceled.” See some of the discussion below.
