‘Man Show’ sexist Jimmy Kimmel to host #MeToo themed Oscars

Ryan Seacrest was found not guilty by the E! Entertainment investigation, but somehow the sexist Jimmy Kimmel can escape his past as the host of The Man Show. CNN declared Kimmel to be “America’s conscience” despite a resume of sexist skits from his past work.

“I’ve stuffed something in my pants, and you’re allowed to feel around on the outside of the pants. You’ll have 10 seconds to then guess what is in my pants,” Kimmel said to a woman he apparently met on the street during a bit on the show which has gone viral across the Internet. “You should use two hands.”

Later in the bit he asked one woman to “put her mouth on it” and made sure another participant was at least 18 years old because, “Uncle Jimmy doesn’t need to do time.”

Check out the clip below.

Now in 2018, as #MeToo and #TimesUp pushes for reform among the Hollywood elite, Kimmel’s star has never shined brighter.

How does the host of the Oscars rationalize away the hypocrisy?

Mediaite columnist Joseph A. Wulfsohn asked why the ABC host hasn’t delivered an “emotional monologue on sexual harassment in Hollywood.”

“He cries that everyone should have health care and that guns are the problem without providing any real solutions, yet he’s silent on the out-of-control abuse women have faced in showbiz for years,” Wulfsohn wrote. “He’s a coward.”

In 2018, when the company found Seacrest free from wrongdoing and the Oscar host can be celebrated despite his misogyny just shows how little has changed in Hollywood and why half of the country will turn the channel.

Last year, the New Republic took pause, questioning Kimmel as host.

“…the story leading up to the Oscars was the Oscars—specifically the lack of people of color nominated for major awards. But Chris Rockwas the perfect host for that moment…Rock’s monologue was fire. For ten minutes, Rock hit Hollywood again and again for its worthless self-adulation and its undeniable racism, which was also indicative of a broader racism. “Is Hollywood racist? You’re damn right Hollywood is racist,” Rock said. Addressing the criticism that there weren’t #OscarsSoWhite protests in the 1960s, Rock joked, “We were too busy being raped and lynched to worry about who won best cinematographer.” It was an uncomfortable monologue, but it was also a funny one. More than anything, it was the right one.”

We would all dare Kimmel to do the same with a #MeToo topic.

Let’s see Kimmel go into the audience and ask Natalie Portman to guess what’s in his pants.
