Just about a week ago, Jimmy Kimmel was exposed as a hypocrite after he lectured President Trump over allegations of bad behavior. Kimmel is still on his moral high horse, but yet another disgusting video clip from his past may just knock him down a notch or two.
Kimmel has been an outspoken advocate of the #MeToo movement, and used the Hollywood scandal to lash out at President Trump.
The move backfired, after a clip from “The Man Show,” a TV program he hosted on Comedy Central prior to his current late-night gig, surfaced online. It showed him asking women to fondle his privates – a joke that has not aged well considering his current argument that women should not be exploited and objectified. That video is included below.
Now, a second clip, showing him pretending to “grope” and “grind” a woman behind her back, has surfaced. The clip, reportedly from 1999, may in fact be staged, with the woman in on the joke. Regardless, his sexualized behavior is still tasteless, and exposes his current hypocrisy on the sexual harassment issue.
Here is the clip, included in a tweet.
WOW: Video shows @jimmykimmel tricking a woman into looking through a viewer while he snuck behind her and made innapproate sexual advances while she was not looking.
RT to make sure the woman in America don't support this pervert. pic.twitter.com/MYGtV0tXkI

We previously reported on Kimmel’s sexist past, after a disgusting video (below) surfaced.
The Kimmel/Hannity feud ignited after Kimmel ridiculed First Lady Melania Trump over her appearance at the White House Easter Egg Roll. Kimmel mocked Melania’s accent and accused her of not doing the work on the event.
Hannity demanded Kimmel apologize for his remarks. Kimmel refused. Hannity continued his criticism, especially after Kimmel brought up some of the past accusations of inappropriate behavior by President Donald Trump. He also joked that Hannity was sexually attracted to the President.
Kimmel apologized for making a gay joke, but refused to apologize for mocking the First Lady. “By lampooning Sean Hannity’s deference to the President, I most certainly did not intend to belittle or upset members of the gay community and to those who took offense, I apologize,” he said in a statement.
“I will take Sean Hannity at his word that he was genuinely offended by what I believed and still believe to be a harmless and silly aside referencing our First Lady’s accent. Mrs. Trump almost certainly has enough to worry about without being used as a prop to increase TV ratings,” he also said.
Since the controversy broke, a video has resurfaced that shows Kimmel seems to have an ongoing problem with showing respect to women. In the video, featuring clips from his past television show “The Man Show,” Kimmel is shown coercing women to fondle his privates.
The video is bookended with Kimmel at the Academy Awards, claiming “We can’t let bad behavior slide anymore. The world is watching us. We need to set an example.” It ends with him crying during a recent interview.
A number of people are sharing the video to social media, asking why his advertisers haven’t pulled their ads over his continued bad behavior towards women.
Here is the video.
The video has been tweeted out to his advertisers, to shame them in their support of his show.

Kimmel has yet to apologize or justify his behavior in the video clips.
