Jimmy Kimmel Apologizes For His Blackface Impression In The 1990s

Jimmy Kimmel is apologizing for a blackface impression he did of NBA star Karl Malone in the mid and late 1990s. He issued a statement that read: "I have long been reluctant to address this, as I knew doing so would be celebrated as a victory by those who equate apologies with weakness and cheer for leaders who use prejudice to divide us... That delay was a mistake. There is nothing more important to me than your respect, and I apologize to those who were genuinely hurt or offended by the makeup I wore or the words I spoke." Jimmy Kimmel's apology follows fellow late-night host Jimmy Fallon's apology for a blackface sketch on SNL back in 2000.

Miley Cyrus Reveals That She's Been Sober For Six Months

Quarantine has been a positive experience for Miley Cyrus! She revealed to Variety, “I’ve been sober for the past six months.” She shared that the reason behind her lifestyle change, at first, was just about the vocal cord surgery she had back in November. However, through her sobriety, Miley Cyrus discovered in therapy how her parents’ upbringings may have affected her. Miley Cyrus' mom was adopted and she revealed that she inherited some of the feelings that her mom had, such as abandonment. Her father's parents got a divorce when Miley Cyrus was 3. The only negative? Miley Cyrus admitted that she's only washed her hair a couple times during the COVID-19 quarantine. She shared, “In the past four months I think I've washed my hair twice."
