Conservative Commentator Calls Out Jimmy Kimmel For ‘White Privilege’

Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief Lawrence Jones says comedian Jimmy Kimmel is the best example of “white privilege” because he is a rich white man with armed security who advocates for gun control.

Jones, who is black, blasted the white host of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, on Fox News.

“I’ve never seen a better example of white privilege than Jimmy Kimmel. He’s a rich white man that has security but he doesn’t want other Americans to have security as well, have the Second Amendment,” Jones said.

Jones added that some cities have “tried” enacting gun control measures, but “it didn’t work.”

“We’ve tried it your way. We’ve tried it the liberal way where they have gun control and it did not help our communities. And so I’m not willing to disarm myself,” Jones said.

Jones comments came just two days after the most recent school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, which claimed the lives of ten individuals. Kimmel addressed the shooting on his show Friday, saying that President Donald Trump and members of Congress know that gun violence “has gone too far but they’re too cowardly to do the right thing.”

“They care more about the support of the NRA than they do about children. So they sit there with their hands in their pockets — pockets that are full with gun money — and they do nothing. They just wait for the outrage to pass because it didn’t happen to their children,” Kimmel said.
