People Are Calling Out Jimmy Kimmel's "White Male Privilege" After He Lied Flat On The Ground During Quinta Brunson's Emmy Speech

Quinta Brunson is officially an Emmy winner!

The 32-year-old writer won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Abbott Elementary.

Quinta’s category was presented by Will Arnett and Jimmy Kimmel, who did this bit where Jimmy laid flat on the ground because he had too many “skinny margaritas” after losing his category.

You’d think that he’d end the whole lying-flat-on-the-ground bit and get up once Quinta had won, but nope.

He continued to lie there, like this, throughout her acceptance speech:

Quinta handled it like a pro, even laughing and placing her phone on his body.

But people were not happy, calling Jimmy out for taking attention away from Quinta:

They also called him out for “white male privilege.”
