On Tuesday Jimmy Kimmel “joked” with his audience that someone should smack Marjorie Taylor Greene in the face, Will Smith style, for not supporting Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Democrats thought this was funny.
This should not be a surprise, Kimmel has a long history of misogynistic behavior.
On Thursday Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene reported Jimmy Kimmel to the Capitol Police.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene says she has filed a complaint against Jimmy Kimmel with the Capitol Police over a joke, and she apparently isn’t kidding.
The Georgia Republican tweeted a clip of Kimmel from the late-night host’s Tuesday monologue on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in which the comic said of Greene, “This woman, Klan mom, is especially upset with the three Republican senators who said they’ll vote yes on Ketanji Brown Jackson, who’s nominated for the Supreme Court. She tweeted, ‘Murkowski, Collins, and Romney are pro-pedophile. They just voted for KBJ.’ Wow, where is Will Smith when you really need him?”
Greene’s tweet included her written message, “@ABC, this threat of violence against me by @jimmykimmel has been filed with the @CapitolPolice.”
Last night, Kimmel responded with a tweet of his own, retweeting Greene’s tweet and writing, “Officer? I would like to report a joke.”
