Jimmy Kimmel Slammed For Diabetes Punchline: ‘it Is An Illness Not A Joke’

On Wednesday Jimmy Kimmel publicly thanked fellow television star Kelly Ripa for some cookies sent by the daytime host — but in the process included a bizarre remark about diabetes. “Thank you for the cookies @KellyRipa,” he said, adding, “You are sweeter than diabetes #KimmelinBrooklyn” Thank you for the cookies @KellyRipa – you are sweeter than diabetes #KimmelinBrooklyn pic.twitter.com/fywxdqvMI3 - Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) October 17, 2017 I guess the joke was that the sweetness of her gift and the cookies would be worth the diabetes caused by the sugar intake, or something like that — needless it to say, it wasn’t his A material. The remark drew instant backlash on Twitter — especially given Kimmel’s recent evolution into America’s foremost late-night healthcare advocate. The dumbass jokes about diabetes are almost worse than having the disease. Please find another punchline. Or shut the fuck up. - Caira Conner (@CairaConner) October 19, 2017 Yikes. Diabetes has GOT to stop being a punchline for jokes. Enough already. Disappointed, @jimmykimmel ???? - Beyond Type 1 (@BeyondType1) October 19, 2017 Diabetes isn’t a joke Jimmy - Kenny (@Ok_HippieChick) O Continue reading >>

    Last night, Comedy Central aired the roast taped last week in Los Angeles for Charlie Sheen. They poked fun at Sheen for a couple hours, though "poked" may be too light a term for some of the shots. They ranged from the obvious (Sheen's manic catchphrases, drug use, sex) to some of the more personal (his children and his ex-wife). One of the things I find the most fascinating about roasts, though, is all the jokes not about the one being roasted ...

(Jorge Ribas/The Washington Post) At first, the researchers who discovered insulin agonized about whether to patent the drug at all. It was 1921, and the team of biochemists and p ...

As a fellow type 1 myself, and a regular blogger for OnTrack Diabetes, I was thrilled when I got the call about the chance to interview Jonas! He's been my dia-crush (person with diabetes who has a crush on another diabetic) ever since I heard him croon with his brothers. Even cooler in my mind (other then his global superstar status) is that he's down-to-e ...
