Jimmy Kimmel Gives Tearful Monologue About Uvalde Shooting, Dallas Station Cuts Him Off

A television network is issuing a public apology to Jimmy Kimmel after the comedian gave an impassioned speech during his talk show. Kimmel, like millions of others, is moved by the Uvalde school shooting in Texas that took the lives of 19 children and two adults, and he delivered a monologue where he called out politicians for turning a blind eye to gun control legislation.

He said they should “admit you made a mistake when your mistake is killing the children in your state” and named political representatives by name.
