Usually when Jimmy Fallon appears on television he is light-hearted and incredibly funny. The turn of recent events in Charlottesville has many people upset and disappointed.
Jimmy Fallon decided to use his platform to speak on the situation,“I was watching the news like everyone else, and you’re seeing Nazi flags and torches and white supremacists, and I was sick to my stomach,” he said.
Fallon continued, “My daughters are in the next room playing and I’m thinking, ‘How can I explain to them that there’s so much hatred in this world?’ They’re 2 years old and 4 years old. They don’t know what hate is. They go to the playground and they have friends of all races and backgrounds, and they just play, and they laugh, and they have fun.”
During his monologue Fallon said a powerful statement, “Ignoring it is just as bad as supporting it.” Watch Jimmy Fallon deliver a powerful message below.
