Even a global pandemic can't stop Twitter from digging around in the history of famous people who've made bad choices. This weekend's "cancellation" saga involves Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon facing the wrath of Twitter after a video resurfaced of him wearing blackface in a Saturday Night Live sketch from 2000.

The deeply-uncomfortable sketch features Fallon, who was a cast member on the show at the time, dressed up as Chris Rock.

Someone edited the caption of the video to reference NBC firing Megyn Kelly from her job at NBC in 2018 after she claimed white people should be allowed to wear blackface in the context of a Halloween costume.
