Twitter Calls Out Jimmy Kimmel for Lying Down Onstage During Quinta Brunson’s Emmys Speech

Jimmy Kimmel is getting some pretty understandable backlash for crashing Quinta Brunson’s Emmy win last night. In case you missed it, Jimmy and Will Arnett presented Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series, and their bit involved Jimmy drinking too many skinny margs and being passed out onstage.

And at first it was kinda funny! But then Jimmy stayed onstage after Quinta won, and she had to give her acceptance speech next to him literally just lying on the ground. And Twitter wasn’t impressed.

Quinta was asked about the moment in the press room after her win and said, “I know Jimmy Kimmel, and I don’t know, I felt like the bit didn’t bother me that much. I don’t know what the internet thinks.” She added, “Jimmy gave me my first big late-night spot. He was one of the first people to see Abbott. He Instagram messaged that he saw this comedy and thought it was one of the greatest comedies of all time. He was so excited it was going to be on ABC. So I think in that moment, I was just really happy that it was Jimmy up there. I kind of just consider him one of the comedy godfathers. I’m a huge fan of Will Arnett, so I was wrapped up in the moment. Tomorrow, maybe I’ll be mad at him.”

Quinta is a guest on Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live (she joked, “Maybe I’ll punch him. I don’t know. We’ll see what happens”) so here’s to hoping he apologizes to her.
