Jimmy Kimmel Told HuffPost to ‘F*ck Off’ for Trying to Call Him Out

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 star Megan Fox sat down with Jimmy Kimmel this week and had a light chat about her pregnancy. He cracked some jokes and sarcastically asked Fox, “Do you feel, in a way, like you lied to me by coming out here pregnant and not indicating it in any way?”

Kimmel clearly wasn’t being serious, but someone at the Huffington Post took it pretty seriously:

HuffPost’s Hayley Cuccinello wrote yesterday that this was a “telling exchange… that spoke volumes about the way Hollywood treats female bodies” before taking offense at the joke:

The audience laughed and clapped after Kimmel joked that Fox was a liar, but this line of questioning is not amusing. Women are not obligated to announce that they’re pregnant, even if they’re famous…

His invasive questioning shows exactly why some celebrities go to such lengths to hide their pregnancies. Whether you’re a famous actress or not, the world acts like your pregnancy is their business.

Again, he was joking, but on top of that, Kimmel fired back yesterday with this pretty blunt tweet:

Yow.
