Jimmy Kimmel Lying Down During Quinta Brunson Speech

The 32-year-old writer won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Abbott Elementary.

Quinta’s category was presented by Will Arnett and Jimmy Kimmel, who did this bit where Jimmy laid flat on the ground because he had too many “skinny margaritas” after losing his category.

You’d think that he’d end the whole lying-flat-on-the-ground bit and get up once Quinta had won, but nope.

He continued to lie there, like this, throughout her acceptance speech:

Quinta handled it like a pro, even laughing and placing her phone on his body.

But people were not happy, calling Jimmy out for taking attention away from Quinta:

Quinta Brunson deserved better than giving her acceptance over Jimmy Kimmel’s “dead” body. #Emmys #AbbottElementary

They also called him out for “white male privilege.”

White male privilege is laying on the ground & expecting a Black woman to just step around you while she accepts her hard-earned award. Fuck Jimmy Kimmel. #Emmys2022

CAN SOMEONE TELL THE HUMAN PERSONIFICATION OF WHITE MALE PRIVILEGE THAT IS @jimmykimmel THAT HE IS NOT ENTITLED TO TAKE UP *ALL* THE SPACE—ESPECIALLY WHEN THAT SPACE BELONGS TO @quintabrunson WHO HAD TO LITERALLY NAVIGATE AROUND HIM TO ACCEPT HER HISTORIC #EMMY

Un. be. lievable.
