The sketch drew audible laughter – and groans – from the crowd. However, things took a turn after Arnett announced that Quinta had won the Emmy for her ABC series Abbot Elementary, which shockingly left Kimmel onstage for the duration of her speech. At one point, Quinta even tried to rouse him by saying, “Jimmy, wake up, I won,” but the former Man Show host stayed put.
Twitter was unwilling to condone the TV host’s antics.
“So Jimmy Kimmel is really going to stage her speech by lying on the floor in front of her?” raged an angry spectator. “How the hell.”

Many accused the host of embodying “white male privilege”. a critic writes“If #QuintaBrunson exceed #Jimmy Kimmel who literally burst into the limelight the day she won an Emmy isn’t a metaphor for what it means to be a WOC in a world of white men, I don’t know what it is.

“CAN ANYONE TELL THE HUMAN PERSONIFICATION OF THE WHITE MALE PRIVILEGE THAT IS @Jimmy Kimmel THAT HE IS NOT RIGHT TO TAKE *ALL* THE SPACE – ESPECIALLY IF THAT SPACE BELONGS TO @quintabrunson WHO literally had to navigate around him to accept her story #EMMY” exclaimed another angry commenter.
“When I see black Twitter, I give Jimmy Kimmel the pull he deserves. I love it,” said one gloating spectator the alleged online fee of the host.
Despite Twitter’s dissatisfaction with the skit, Brunson said backstage that she didn’t mind Kimmel’s antics.
“I know Jimmy Kimmel. It didn’t bother me,” admitted the writer-actress, who is set to appear on Kimmel’s late-night show Wednesday. “Honestly, Jimmy gave me my first big late night commercial, he was one of the first people to see Abbott Elementary. He was the first to message me on Instagram.”
She added: “He was so excited that it would be on ABC. I was glad it was Jimmy. He’s one of the comedy godfathers.”
Although Brunson cheekily joked that she might “smack” him during her guest appearance as revenge for his antics.
