Jimmy Kimmel Issues an Apology to End Feud With Sean Hannity

The 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' host realizes that 'the level of vitriol (mine and me included) does nothing good for anyone and, in fact, is harmful to our country.'

AceShowbiz - Jimmy Kimmel does not want to continue a conflict with Sean Hannity that "does nothing good to anyone." After all he had done and all jokes he made, Jimmy issued an apology message to Sean through a Sunday, April 8 tweet.

In the post, Jimmy admitted his role in fanning the flames and it was a mistake. He wrote, "While I admit I did have fun with our back and forth, 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."

He added, "Even in 2018, the vile attacks against my wife and wishes for death on my infant son are shocking and I encourage those who made them to give their words and actions thought. I, too, will give my words more thought and recognize my role in inciting their hatefulness."

He also apologized for jokes about Sean, stating, "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."

Jimmy then referred to his joke about the First Lady's accent and apologized, 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. Mrs. Trump almost certainly has enough to worry about without being used as a prop to increase TV ratings."

He concluded the message by hoping that Sean would learn something. He wrote, "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."

Previously, Jimmy and Sean had Twitter war on which the two were fighting over what they're doing. In one particular moment, Sean felt disgusted by Jimmy's joke about the First Lady's accent and one segment on Jimmy's old show "The Man Show" when Jimmy asked women to find something hidden in his pants. Calling Jimmy Harvey Weinstein junior, Sean tweeted, "Dear Mr Weinstein jr. you are a disgusting pervert. Stop projecting. How you treat the First Lady helping kids is disgusting. How you treat 18 year old girls is disgusting. And your show is a failure. Game on you pervert pig. I'll be on this till you apologize."

Replying to Sean's tweet, Jimmy wrote, "I'm starting to think SOMEONE has a crush on me!"

Sean wrote another tweet saying that he would never stop tweeting until Jimmy apologized. The tweet read, "On top of being a pervert you really are dumb, even with 100 writers. I have not been partners with @Disney since 2007. I'm really trying to help you here; CALL IGER! Apologize to the First Lady and I'll stop. If not, I will NEVER stop. EVER!"

Jimmy then responded to Sean's tweet by writing, "What you don't seem to realize is that I LOVE this. I guess it's one of my perversions."

After Sean tweeted, "Jimmy (aka Harvey Weinstein Jr) I LOVE it that you like getting your a** kicked like this. I'll keep exposing you as the pig, pervert and racist you are. #pervertkimmel @disney," Jimmy also wrote back, "Sounds like a win-win. If only Congress could get along as well as you and I do. Goodnight sweet Sean."
