Jimmy Responds to Viral Reaction to His RuPaul Interview

February 11, 2020

-Guys, RuPaul was on our show
last week. We had a great time.
[ Cheers and applause ] Did a great job hosting
“Saturday Night Live” too. But some people say I looked
a little nervous at one point during the interview. -Really?
[ Laughter ] On Twitter, the user @issa6foot3
even uploaded a clip of themselves watching me, and
it went viral over the weekend. It’s up to like 7 million hits
or something. Anyways, just take a look at
what they posted. But this is gigantic. This is the first time
a drag queen has ever been put on
the cover of — -A drag queen?! A drag queen?! [ Laughter ] I am the queen of drag. [ Cheers and applause ] I-I — I apologize. [ Stammering ] I’m embarrassed. I’m sorry. -He got him so scared. [ Laughter ] -I really thought it was over. That was it. I go — [ Laughter ] -Now you’re canceled.
-That’s it, I’m canceled. Yeah, I started my own hashtag,
“Jimmy Fallon is over.” I was like, “I had a good run.
You know? I had 10 years in the business.” I was like,
“Wait, what did I do wrong?” But it was so funny.
He was like, “A drag queen?!” [ Laughter ]
I was like, “Oh, no.” Anyways, my thanks to RuPaul.
We love you. It was a very funny moment. [ Cheers and applause ]

    Genuine fear that you are now cancelled by the Twitter warriors because you miss labelled someone.

    This isnt funny it's kind of a little bit sad that we are at this point.

    Letโ€™s be honest, itโ€™s really sad that people nowadays have to be so nervous about what we say to the point of losing careers. Itโ€™s got to a point where it doesnโ€™t even matter if hate was behind it or not, people have seriously lost careers over stupidity like this & this OFFENSE era needs to end….this was funny but there are a lot of people in the industry that didnโ€™t get to laugh at the end.

  • Reply Yellow Flash Gamer February 11, 2020 at 12:37 pm

    It's crazy how a single group of people can result in you getting cancelled over one wrong label. That's all it takes. My heart dropped for him

  • Reply DSLightning21 February 11, 2020 at 12:38 pm

    No worries Jimmy, that was on him to be arrogant.

    Still makes no sense why "liberal" women aren't outraged by the "drag" community. Basically they're saying men can be as good (if not better) at posing as a woman. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    This is how Fallon always acts…he's a scared puppet who's afraid of PC police going to get upset with him and take away his Playhouse. Today's clammy, extremely limited, poor humor that isnt worth th entertainment value it pretends to be.

    Shows you everything wrong with the โ€œcancel cultureโ€ that has been propped up by the modern social justice Marxist left.

    A good person says one thing – and within a second is literally struck with absolute dread and terror thinking their whole life is about to collapse.

    This is not an environment we should be living under. Context matters. Intentions matter. We shouldnโ€™t be living under constant fear that one wrong accidental word might be the absolute ruin of your career and life. This is insanity.

    We joke about it, but really this is sad.
