ABC Is Apologizing for an Unscripted Joke a Little Boy Made in a Skit on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Jimmy Kimmel is once again being criticized for one of his skits involving little kids. Earlier this month, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” featured a segment where kids pretended to be politicians and commented on the news.
