Jimmy Fallon Apologizes ‘SNL’ Blackface Video Surfaces

Jimmy Fallon blackface video hits the web again as the TV host apologizes for doing blackface 20 years ago during a sketch on NBC’s Saturday Night Live.

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.

The Tonight Show and celebrity TV host and SNL vet said he was sorry after the clip resurfaced and he was criticized for the moment across Twitter.

The sketch in question featured Fallon in blackface impersonating Chris Rock on Regis Philbin’s (Darrell Hammond) late-night show.
Fallon has done his Rock impression a number of times over the years, such as on Howard Stern’s radio show.

There is no legitimate clip of the segment available, with NBC having scrubbed it from the SNL site, but bootlegs are floating around YouTube and Twitter.
