Late night host Jimmy Kimmel's Twitter feud with Fox News host Sean Hannity reached a shocking conclusion when Kimmel ended up apologizing for his side of the argument. The talk show host apologized for raising the level of vitriol in our national conversation, but also for making a few jokes which have gotten criticism for being homophobic, including jokes about Sean Hannity bottoming for Trump, and jokes about Sean Hannity eating Trump's butt. Here to discuss the fallout from the decision to say these kinds of comments are our CircaPop Live hosts Ryan Mitchell, Shira Lazar, and our special guest, actor Hayden Szeto who can be seen in the movie Truth or Dare playing Brad.
So what does the group think of Kimmel's apology? Shira doesn't think it was trying to be overtly insulting to the gay community, but Ryan sees this joke as part of a larger trend. Ryan sees that Kimmel took the concept of being gay and made it a joke -- making the concept of homosexuality as somehow less masculine as way to somehow win points against Hannity. Ryan was generous, saying it might be the funniest joke amongst him and his friends, but it does denigrate the gay community.
