Sean Hannity accepts Jimmy Kimmel's apology, moves on to 'extreme media bias'

Jimmy Kimmel

He says such animosity is "harmful to our country".

The feud began last week, when the Jimmy Kimmel Live host poked fun at Melania Trump's accent, after the First Lady gave a book reading to children at the White House Easter Egg Roll. He mocked the accent of the first lady, who was born in Slovenia.

Kimmel then upped the ante by making a homophobic dig with a lewd sexual reference to Hannity and President Trump.

He rolled a series of Kimmel clips, mostly from the comedian's days as a co-host of Comedy Central's "The Man Show", that featured segments showing Kimmel with an exaggerated fake erection, asking women to find something hidden in his trousers and going up to random women in the street asking if they wanted to have sex with him.

Shortly after Kimmel's apology, Hannity teased a response on his own Twitter account.

I think I felt like I was becoming a distraction. "There is still a bit of a journey left and I'm not going to skip any steps". Luck did suggest that he was making progress, however, noting, "If I wasn't making progress, I would freak out", per Holder .

On Sunday, Kimmel apologized to Hannity and for causing offense to gay people but offered no apology to Melania Trump. Sean Hannity has as of Monday night invited you onto his show to discuss the issues. "I'll have a full and comprehensive response tomorrow on 'Hannity'".

"Dees and dat", Kimmel repeated, with a laugh. Ever since, Kimmel and Hannity have been trading punches on Twitter that hit a new low on Friday when Hannity blasted Kimmel as a "pervert", "pig", and "racist".

An enraged Kimmel reacted by slamming Hannity on Twitter, writing: "If I'm an ass clown - and I might very well be - you, Sean, are the whole ass circus".

"I want to extend an invitation".

Jimmy Kimmel's passive-aggressive non-apology was evicerated on Twitter, with many pointing out that it was not a honest apology, but merely a response to heavy backlash on social media and pressure from his network bosses. "How many do you speak?" "Why don't you rant a little about that, Sean Hannity?".
