It’s Official: Jimmy Kimmel is Out of Material

So…the Emmy’s were on last night. Did I watch them? Nope. No interest. It’s just a big celebrity circle-jerk. Jimmy Kimmel was the host. Kimmel has a history of making fun of gluten-free people. But I figured the gluten jokes have gotten old and he wouldn’t bring it up. I figured there is no way he’d degrade those eating gluten-free in front of a world-wide audience of millions. I figured he’d move on to something else.

I figured wrong.

It seems that during the broadcast, he “thought” it would be funny if he handed out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the audience. The fact that Ellen did this on the Oscars a few years ago already speaks volumes about how unoriginal this “skit” was. Then, as the PB&J’s were getting handed out, he said this:

“Raise your hand if you have a gluten allergy. I just want America to see which of their favorite celebrities are the most annoying.”

He’s not even making fun of the gluten-free posers. He’s actually making fun of those who get sick from gluten. Yes…those with celiac disease.

Look…I’ve been down this path way too many times before. You can read here why I think these jokes hurt us. So I could rant and rave. But honestly…it doesn’t do any good. Half of you will agree. And half will tell me I need to lighten up. And then life will go on and the jokes will continue. And gluten-free kids will continue to get bullied. And the celiac diagnosis rate will continue to be shit. And our community will continue to get sick because we’re not taken seriously.

So rather than hear from me on this one, I’ll let others in the community speak to Jimmy directly. I perused Twitter last night when I heard about the joke, and here was some of the feedback.

And yeah…there were lots and lots more. See folks? It ain’t just me.

Thanks to the community for continuing to rock and speak up. And to you Jimmy…seriously dude, let the gluten-free jokes go. They’re about as stale as the sandwiches your mom made.
