Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has reported talk show host Jimmy Kimmel to the Capitol Police after he suggested actor Will Smith should slap the congresswoman.
During his show, Kimmel “jokingly” hinted that Smith should target Greene with his aggression after the actor assaulted comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars.
Greene shared a video clip of Kimmel saying: “Marjorie Taylor Greene, this Klan mom, is especially upset with the three Republican Senators who said they’ll vote ‘yes’ on Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson, who’s nominated for the Supreme Court.”
Kimmel then read Greene’s Monday social media post where she said: “Murkowski, Collins, and Romney are pro-pedophile.
“They just voted for #KBJ.”
Kimmel then dropped the punchline that did not amuse Rep. Greene:
“Wow, where is Will Smith when you really need him, huh?”
Green fired back:
“@ABC, this threat of violence against me by @jimmykimmel has been filed with the @CapitolPolice.”
Kimmel responded with:
“Officer? I would like to report a joke.”
