Jimmy Fallon's Chris Rock Impression Bombs at the Golden Globes But Reminds Us of the Time He Did Blackface on SNL
Jimmy Fallon had quite conundrum on his hands when he hosted the Golden Globes this year. When his teleprompter went down, he wasn’t quite sure what to do.
So the consummate professional and presidential-hair tussler decided to bust out some of his classic impressions. What did he turn to? Neil Young? Nope. Jerry Seinfeld? Nope. Donald Trump? Nope. In the year 2016, he did his Chris Rock impression, and, ew, boy, people did not like it.
This isn’t the first time he’s done Chris Rock. The impression jogged the memory of Super Deluxe’s mad editing genius Vic Berger who cut together the Golden Globes with that time Jimmy Fallon impersonated Chris Rock on SNL… in black face.
Fallon isn’t the first performer to don that infamous racist makeup, and, unfortunately, he isn’t the last. This video, which cuts together his awkward Globes performance with his offensive SNL one, is cringe-inducing and hilarious.
