While hosting Jimmy Kimmel live from Los Angeles on Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel opened the show by inviting Jimmy Fallon to serve as his guest host, so Fallon took his place on the couch.
Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel have a love and admiration for each other, and if there’s one thing Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel love more than hosting each other, it’s Jimmy Kimmel serving as Jimmy Kimmel’s guest host. Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel called Jimmy Fallon a “cowboy” for inviting Jimmy Fallon to be his guest host, after telling Jimmy Fallon to “stay away from people”. Jimmy Kimmel then invited Jimmy Fallon to serve as his guest host, and Jimmy Fallon accepted.
During Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon’s conversation, Jimmy Kimmel apologized profusely for his “cowboy” remark and invited Jimmy Fallon to come back and host “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (later airing on Tuesday night). After Jimmy Fallon accepted, Jimmy Kimmel explained that he was just “saying it like it’s a bad thing”.
After Jimmy Fallon accepted the invitation, Jimmy Kimmel made another statement about what he said. He said, “I feel like a real dick doing that at all” and he apologized to Jimmy Fallon for saying it.
After Jimmy Fallon’s apology, Jimmy Kimmel said, “We all have something to apologize for. I want to apologize for my ‘cowboy’ joke.” He then apologized for saying, “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to offend you.”
“I would take it a step further and I can’t, but I want to,” Jimmy Kimmel said. “I am so sorry, I owe you an apology.”
Jimmy Kimmel said, “Thank you for apologizing. I feel like a real dick for doing that. Thank you. I am sorry I said it. I am so sorry. I swear I didn’t mean to offend you.”
Jimmy Kimmel went on to apologize again, explaining that he did not mean to insult Jimmy Fallon or any other celebrity.
