Jimmy Fallon has apologised for using blackface back in 2000 on Saturday Night Live.
The talk show host has recently faced backlash after a video of him doing an impression of Chris Rock re-emerged.
He tweeted: ‘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.’
One unimpressed viewer had tweeted: ‘People are ACTUALLY defending jimmy Fallon for doing black face saying “he was doing a skit, it was a impersonation” I just don’t have any faith in this world anymore… how could you be so brain dead! You guys don’t even know the definition of blackface.’
Another added: ‘Jimmy Fallon doing blackface why is impersonating black ppl so funny back in the day I hate it here.’
One more simply added: ‘Not Jimmy Fallon in blackface’.
