What is Jimmy Fallon apologizing for?
In the wake of allegations from sixteen current and former staff members of Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Tonight show’ over a “toxic work environment” Fallon reportedly apologised in a Zoom conference with his staff.
And the response from Jimmy Fallon himself has been overall apologetic and remorseful.
“Sorry if I embarrassed you and your family and friends … I feel so bad I can’t even tell you.”
Fallon went on to say that the ‘Tonight Show’ should be “fun and inclusive to everybody.”
The Tonight Show come to Fallon’s defence within hours of his apology.
However, it would appear that not everyone experienced the negativity the other employees expressed.
In fact, one of the producers disputed the claims of bullying saying that Fallon was always friendly and talked with everyone he came across.
But not just Fallon’s employees came to the hosts’ defence, so did Greg Gutfeld of Fox News who said he should not apologise.

However, the so-called story from “Rolling Stone” did not surprise most people and instead caused indifference and mockery.
While everyone is talking about Jimmy Fallon right now, almost none of it is all that flattering.
In fact, most of the responses contain a lot of hate for the late-night host.

Not all of the response is hate…
For instance, Jon Lovitz recalled nothing but respect and good humour on the part of Jimmy Fallon.
I have known @jimmyfallon since the summer of 1998, right when he cast on SNL. I have done the @FallonTonight show as recently as last year. Jimmy was as nice as ever and treated everyone that worked on the show with respect. A very fun, pleasant atmosphere!

While others simply do not to believe the rumours surrounding Fallon and prefer to remain wilfully stubborn.
