As the host of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon since 2014, the comedian is one of the most beloved personalities on late night television.
However, he’s facing some questions after a Saturday Night Live clip resurfaced showing him portraying Chris Rock in blackface.
See the resurfaced clip below:
Fallon, 45, tweeted an apology on May 26, “In 2000, while on SNL, I made a terrible decision to do an impersonation of Chris Rock while in blackface. There is no excuse for this. I am very sorry for making this unquestionably offensive decision and thank all of you for holding me accountable.”
Jimmy Fallon was a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 1998 to 2004. Chris Rock was also on the show from 1990 to 1993.
