* {{Blackface}}: He wore this to parody Karl Malone on ''Series/TheManShow''. Back in 1999, this did not rise any controversy but in 2019 due to Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's yearbook allegations (and the shift in political correctness in the United States between these 2 decades), Kimmel was subject to a minor amount of denigration.
* {{Crossdresser}}: He often does this, including on his shows. One time he dressed up as Princess Leia complete with the cinnamon bun hair to promote ''Film/StarWarsTheForceAwakens''.

-->'''Kimmel''': -->'''Kimmel:''' The scariest part about North Korea is it could be anywhere.


Kimmel is considered a left-wing celebrity due to his fundraising efforts for the Democratic Party, pressure for gun control and criticisms of Donald Trump. He is one of Hollywood's highest profile critics of Creator/DonaldTrump and points out flaws in Trump's policies and speeches both on and outside his show. Kimmel has pressed for stricter gun control in response to mass shootings throughout the United States. Trump attacked ABC Network partly due to Kimmel's criticisms and also attacked Kimmel himself - leading to Kimmel retaliating on his show by insulting Trump even more frequently. While usually he's dead serious about his contempt for Trump, other times he just wants to make fun of Trump to add in material for his show. In fact, Kimmel even invited A-list Trump supporters, or at least conservative celebrities, onto his show, and does not even bother arguing with them.

* AllMenArePerverts: A common theme in his shows, starting back in ''Series/TheManShow'' which had male perversion as a central theme.



* FriendToAllChildren: Presents himself as this, often conversing with children on segments of his show. Not to mention, Kimmel has a lot of children of his own who live opulent lifestyles because of his wealth.
* HypocriticalHumor: No, we're not saying Kimmel is a hypocrite. However, he has been accused of being this for the fact that Kimmel claims to be vocally supportive of feminist causes such as third-wave feminism, even though Kimmel co-created shows for Comedy Central that are graphically misogynistic and downright optimistic about objectifying women such as "The Man Show". It actually depends on how you view "The Man Show", since some viewers claimed that even if The Man Show did try to lampoon male chauvinism it still indulged in it anyways.

* {{Nepotism}}: He made his brother Jonathan Kimmel the director for the show, and his son Kevin a production assistant.
* PapaWolf: He rushed to his daughter Katie's aid when he suspected that her T-shirt brand was being plagiarized by another small company called Reformation. He was angry that Reformation was using T-shirts that simply had one color and words describing Italian food, much like how Katie designs her shirts. Kimmel hasn't garnered much sympathy or agreement from people who reacted to this news.
