Jimmy Kimmel apologizes for joke amid Sean Hannity Twitter feud

Fox News host Sean Hannity is at war with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel has addressed the fallout from his verbal fight with Sean Hannity, after Kimmel joked about First Lady Melania Trump's accent.

Kimmel turned to his show sidekick, Guillermo Rodriguez, and said, "you could be first lady of the United States".

On Sunday, it appeared Kimmel had enough.

After Kimmel's monologue aired on ABC, Hannity called him "Harvey Weinstein jr" on Twitter and threatened to say more on Friday.

In response to Kimmel's note, Hannity said he'll "have a full and comprehensive response tomorrow" on his Fox News program.

"Game on", Hannity said on Friday.

The comedian wrapped up his statement by expressing hope that Hannity would take the same amount of reflection he had, and emerge as a fighter for women.

In the span of 1 minute, 40 seconds to start the fourth quarter, Golden State cut Indiana's lead in half. They built a 20-point lead in the third quarter. "Caring in general was the main problem", Kerr said .

Kimmel, meanwhile, also came under fire from many LGBTQ rights advocates Friday when he used similar allusions to gay sex in tweets directed at Fox News host Sean Hannity.

As seen in his below tweet published on Sunday, April 8, Kimmel explained his reasoning for issuing an apology to Melania, along with words for Hannity, whom Kimmel tagged in the tweet.

The website Deadline first reported on Kimmel's twitter apology.

In reaction into this tweet, Kimmel wrote: "From lampooning Sean Hannity's deference towards the President, I certainly didn't mean to belittle or upset members of their gay community and to people who took offense, I apologize". Mrs. Trump nearly certainly has enough to be concerned about without properly used like a jolt to enhance TV scores.

Concluded Kimmel: "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".

The tweets confronted some backlash on Twitter, the place Perez Hilton accused Kimmel of resorting to "lazy humor" and jokes that "persistently use homosexual males as punchlines". He said the idea that Hannity would call anyone a pervert while he was "slobbering over" Donald Trump is, "to quote a fella you love very much, 'sad'".

They needled each other for their ratings: Kimmel is third behind Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon among late-night comics, while Hannity lost his cable news ratings lead to Rachel Maddow last month. Assclown Kimmel. Now, I'm going to tell you something: What a disgrace.
