Jimmy Kimmel, was labeled a “national shame” for teasing Malala

Jimmy Kimmel was called a ‘national disgrace’ when viewers said he ‘harassed’ Malala Yousafzai, the  Taliban gunshot survivor, during a weird Oscars (95th) segment.

The Nobel Peace Prize recipient & education activist, 25, was noticeably uncomfortable when the host, 55, approached her during a break in the action and asked her a strange question regarding the ‘spit-gate’ controversy involving Chris Pine and Harry Styles.

The host read out a query from a supporter named Joanne, saying: ” As the youngest Nobel prize laureate in history. Your work on human rights and education for women and children is an inspiration. Do you think Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine? “

Just stated, “I only talk about peace,” she said.

“You are Malala because of it,” Kimmel remarked. ” That response is fantastic.”

Yousafzai served as executive producer of the short film “Stranger at the Gate, which lost in the 2023 Oscar race to the Indian documentary, “The Elephant Whisperers,” for best documentary short subject.

The evening then took a more embarrassing turn when a guest costumed as a real-life version of the movie’s “Cocaine Bear” crept down the aisle and started bugging Malala.

Malala attended the Oscars in a stunning silver glittery Ralph Lauren outfit.

After a video leaked last fall that purported to show the “As It Was” singer and top-seller of Billboard Hot 100 leaning over Pine and spitting on him, SpitGate became a popular Internet discussion subject.

Malala was a young education campaigner when the Pakistani Taliban pursued her. In 2012, they shot her in the face after stopping her school bus.

After surviving, Malala got awarded the Nobel Peace Prize two years later. She is renowned for supporting human rights and initiatives in Pakistan for women’s and children’s education.

When Kimmel interacted with Malala, many criticized his “disrespectful” behavior on social media. One wrote: “Why did Jimmy Kimmel go up to Malala, make that corny ass Chris pine and Harry styles joke and then call her Malala land?? What is wrong with this man.”

Malala herself tweeted: ‘Treat people with kindness’ regarding the clip.
