Sean Hannity Accepts Jimmy Kimmel's 'Forced Disney' Apology

Sean Hannity Accepts Jimmy Kimmel's 'Forced Disney' Apology

"I, too, will give my words more thought and recognize my role in inciting their hatefulness", Kimmel promised. Hannity used the clip to call Kimmel "Harvey Weinstein Jr.", a reference to the disgraced Miramax founder who assaulted and harassed multiple women during his time as a powerful Hollywood producer.

The freaky, occasionally amusing and ultimately pathetic week-long war of words between Sean Hannity and Jimmy Kimmel took another weird turn Monday night when Hannity accepted Kimmel's apology - and then put his dukes right back up.

Their feud began with Mr. Kimmel mocking first lady Melania Trump's accent Monday ("dees and dat"), prompting Mr. Hannity to say "game on" and resulting in charges of racism, idiocy, homosexuality, homophobia and more - often in unprintable terms. Kimmel fired back during his own show before the two TV personalities took their quarrel to Twitter.

It appears the most recent late night-conservative pundit feud is coming to a close-well, maybe.

Hannity called Kimmel's words from the previous day a "forced Disney corporate apology" while admitted that he does "enjoy a good fight". "Mrs. Trump nearly certainly has enough to worry about without being used as a prop to increase TV ratings".

At least 26 children died on Monday after a school bus fell into a deep gorge in Nurpur of Himachal Pradesh's Kangra district . All students were from a nearby private school and are reported to be under 13 years old, according to NDTV .

Kimmel said in a Twitter post Sunday that his exchanges with Hannity were fun but he didn't want to add to the "vitriol" of their spat, which included Hannity calling Kimmel a "sick, twisted, creepy, perverted weirdo" during his Fox show on Friday. Trump, who is originally from Slovenia, speaks English with a pronounced Central European accent. Hannity vowed to continue his attacks unless Kimmel apologizes to the first lady, saying, "Apologize to the First Lady and I'll stop".

Watch above, via Fox News. "Why don't you rant a little about that, Sean Hannity?".

As for Hannity's response, the Fox News host tweeted that he had just received an alert about the Kimmel tweet while at "a tournament with my daughter". Kimmel's subsequent jokes about Hannity's unwavering support for President Trump were criticized as homophobic, prompting Kimmel to apologize to "members of the gay community".

Hannity then invited Kimmel onto his show to debate politics, adding, "My bet is that you'll actually agree with me on a lot more issues than you think". "I promise no name calling, no anger, no rehashing of the Twitter fight", he said.
