Jimmy Kimmel Apologizes to LGBT Community, Aims to Squash Beef with Sean Hannity

All Jimmy Kimmel is saying to Sean Hannity is…

… let’s give peace a chance.

Of course, this is not ALL Kimmel has been saying to Hannity, which is why the talk show host issued a lengthy statement on Twitter over the weekend.

Over the past several days, Kimmel and Hannity have been embroiled in quite a feud.

It started when the former made a few cracks about Melania Trump’s accent, which prompted Hannity to call Kimmel an “ass clown.”

(Kimmel had quipped about the First Lady pronouncing “this” as “dis” and setting a poor example for some school kids to whom she was reading.)

Kimmel made some jokes online in response, calling out Hannity for never exactly defending women or immigrants in the past, to which Hannity replied by playing clips of Kimmel as host of The Man Show many years ago.

He referred to Kimmel as “Harvey Weinstein Jr” and as a “pervert” for the way in which he interacted with women on this program back in the day.

From there, Kimmel made cracks about Hannity leaving lipstick on President Donald Trump’s rear end and wondering whether Hannity was a “top” or a “bottom” in his relationship with the Commander-in-Chief.

It was these jabs that, at least in part, have caued Kimmel to put an end to his back-and-forth with Hannity.

“By lampooning Sean Hannity’s deference to the President, I most certainly did not intend to belittle or upset members of the gay community and to those who took offense, I apologize,” wrote Kimmel, adding that he did “have fun” exchanging barbs with Hanniyu.

HOWEVER…

“After some thought I realize that the level of vitriol (mine and me included) does nothing good for anyone and, in fact, is harmful to our country.”

The comedian also touched on “vile attacks” against his wife and “wishes for death” on his infant son that he had received as a result of the exchange, expressing hope that the instigators would “give their words and actions thought.”

Tongue firmly planed in cheek at times, Kimmel got in a few shots at Hannity while still seeking to calm tempers, writing:

I will take Sean Hannity at his word that he was genuinely offended by what I believed and still believe to be a harmless and silly aside referencing our First Lady’s accent.

I am hopeful that Sean Hannity will learn from this too and continue his newly-found advocacy for women, immigrants and First Ladies and that he will triumph in his heroic battle against sexual harassment and perversion.”

Hannity did not respond to this statement with one of his own.

Not yet at least anyway.

“Just had this pop up. I am at a tournament with my daughter. I’ll have a full and comprehensive response tomorrow on Hannity. 9 EST FOX,” the Fox News veteran Tweeted on Sunday.

Even before this argument with Hannity, Kimmel was often a target of disdain from conservatives.

He has used his platform often of late to advocate for various causes, breaking down in tears at one point over a failure of Congress to pass gun control legislation.

Kimmel also pushed hard and emotionally for universal health care after his newborn son had to undergo emergency heart surgery last year.

You can watch Kimmel and his child together in the following video while the world anxiously waits to see if Hannity responds to Kimmel’s statement with class and maturity or…

… LOL, who are we kidding?

While we wait to see just how Hannity brags about how he clearly won this ongoing debate.

Amy Roloff Tries to Squash Family Feud Rumors

Over the past two weeks, various members of the Little People, Big World family have been sharing various photos online.

They’ve all been very cute and awfully precious because they’ve featured relatives enjoying the holidays together.

But there’s been something missing.

Or, rather, there has been someone missing from any photo that featured Jeremy Roloff and any photo that featured Audrey Roloff.

It’s true. Have you not noticed it?

None of the images shared by members of the Roloffs has depicted both Audrey AND Jeremy in the same shot.

Take note of the snapshot posted above by Amy, for example.

And also the one below, posted by her ex-husband, Matt.

For this reason, and a few others, some fans of this TLC program have been wondering if there’s a rivalry between Jacob and Audrey.

They don’t follow each other on Instagram and they definitely have contrasting views on life.

Jacob is not religious. He travels around the country with his girlfriend and dogs and doesn’t seem too anxious to settle down in one place.

Audrey is VERY religious. She adores her life at home with husband Jeremy and new daughter, Ember.

Is it possible these two have been unable to find any common ground on which they can get along?

Certainly.

But Amy has responded to chatter over any sort of feud with a simple fact.

Why weren’t Audrey and Jacob together at any point over the holidays? Simple, she wrote to followers on social media:

“To clear it up: Jeremy and Audrey were out of town for New Years.”

Oh. Okay then.

The alleged hatred that may or may not exist between Audrey and Jeremy marks one of the few controversies to surround the Roloffs.

For the most part, these loved ones have appealed to viewers over the years because they get along so well with each other.

There’s rarely any drama.

Late last year, however, some insiders claimed there was tension between Amy and Matt (see below) due to the latter’s relationship with Caryn Chandler, who started dating the family patriarch despite also knowing Amy pretty well.

Audrey has also received some backlash for the sort of marriage advice she gives on a constant basis.

Will these reports and rumors have any impact in upcoming episodes?

Will the Roloffs get along differently when the new season premieres?

We’re anxious to find out.

(In other words: Hint, hint, TLC… bring the show back ASAP please!)
