Quinta Brunson crashes Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue after Emmy controversy

During Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue on Wednesday night’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, the late-night host was interrupted by Abbott Elementary creator Quinta Brunson — comedic retaliation after Kimmel was criticized for his performance at the Emmys had been.

“Look who interrupted Jimmy’s monologue tonight!” The show’s official social media shared ahead of the airing. The post also includes a photo of Brunson showing off her Emmy while Kimmel stands behind her, grinning and out of focus.

Kimmel, who presented the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series during Monday night’s ceremony, pretended to be drunk and was dragged onto the stage by Will Arnett. But the late-night presenter stayed on the floor after Brunson was announced as the category winner and began her acceptance speech. The Abbott Elementary creator and star had to step over Kimmel’s body to reach the microphone.

Brunson had already laughed at the controversy before appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Speaking to the press after accepting her award, Brunson said, “That part didn’t bother me that much. Jimmy gave me my first big late night commercial and was one of the first to see Abbott. He thought it was one of the greatest comedies of all time and was so excited it would be aired on ABC.”

“I think at that moment I was just really happy that it was Jimmy up there. I consider him one of the comedy godfathers. I might be mad at him tomorrow,” she concluded. “I’m going to be on his show on Wednesday, so I might smack him in the face. I do not know what happens.”

She echoed a similar sentiment at ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” TCA panel on Wednesday, though her castmate Sheryl Lee Ralph disagreed. Ralph, who won the Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy on Monday, said: “I was like, ‘Ooh, the disrespect, Jimmy!’ But that’s just me. I told him too! To his face! And he understood.”
