Jimmy Kimmel Won't Hire Light Crew That Burned Pro-Lifer, Won't Apologize

Hollywood, CA -- The producers of the Jimmy Kimmel television talk show, whose lighting crew burned a pro-life advocate protesting abortion outside his studio, say they will not hire the lighting crew for future work. However, despite protests during his live program, Kimmel refuses to apologize.

How the hell is burning someone with a spot light not assault?

I’d have knocked that light over and smashed it.

If Kimmel apologizes, is that admitting liability?

Did Kimmel perform an abortion or something? Why protest him?

Well, Kimmel didn’t do or order the burning. And the kid could have just stepped out of the light or far enough away that he wouldn’t get burned. My guess is the boys with the lights decided it would be fun to burn the protestor away. They’re the guys he should be going after.

He used to be Sarah Silverman's pimp.

I wonder that too. Why were they protesting there when they were burned? Also, are they going to file a lawsuit? They should.

Kimmel and the network are the deep pockets here and the crew was working for them so yes they both are liable IMHO here.

According to earlier reports, the group was simply holding a pro-life rally/demonstration at Grauman’s, and the Kimmel crew was shooting something for the Kimmel Show across the street. The pro-life event had nothing to do with them, but they decided to go practice a little thuggery against hated conservatives.

Contractors, huh? I do think the thugs should be arrested. They probably had a good laugh about it.

“Bueler refused to move and for 15 minutes there was a stand-off, during which time a bracelet he was wearing and his sign were partially melted, although he escaped uncooked. The police were called, and of course they arrested a pro-lifer, Survivors founder Jeff White...”

Colin Powell’s “urban values”.

And Ben Stein's cabin boy, if I'm not mistaken.

The same kind of demented liberal people who would murder an unborn child and scald that child with saline solution apparently will also burn teenage human beings with spotlights if they disagree with them politically. They don't teach morality or ethics in public schools controlled by the NEA and it shows. Those burned should definitely look at a criminal negligence suit or other legal action. No one should be doing that to human beings regardless of their political disagreements on such issues.
