Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel has announced that he is taking a break from Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the summer.
The announcement comes on the heels of a recently resurfaced blackface controversy in which Kimmel took heavy criticism for dressing up as a former NBA player.
Recently, Kimmel announced his summer leave, citing the need for a “couple of months off.”
In a video announcement from his home studio, Kimmel said, “I’m taking this summer off to spend even more time with my family. There’s nothing wrong. I’m healthy, my family’s healthy, I just need a couple of months off.”
