Amy Schumer may have been “triggered” by The Slap, but compared to Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, she’s damn near as hard as Martha Stewart. I’m not sure if MTG even watched the Oscars, given her aversion to pedophiles and glamour, but she was more perturbed by a joke about The Slap than Amy was about it overshadowing her accomplishments of ella as host. According to dead lineMTG filed a report with the Capitol Police after late-night host Jimmy Kimmel jokedwhere’s Will Smith when you need him,” in response to MTG calling the three Republican senators who voted to confirm JUSTICE (!!!) Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court, “pro pedophile.” Well, MGT fucked around and found out what happens when you tussle with the Hollywood elite because Jimmy turned around and called Batman on her ass! The real one too. Not Robert Pattinson’s lonely bat boy, the one in DC! Comics. Not Washington, DC.
The Capitol Police have enough on their plate, what with having to run down and apprehend Jimmy’s joke after it has already been spread across the planet via the World Wide Web. And Spider-Man is not trying to get involved in this month. Deadline reports:
ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel isn’t going to let Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene out-do him: After the Congresswoman who Kimmel calls a “snociopath” – that’s a combo snowflake and sociopath – reported the late night talker to Capitol Police over a joke, Kimmel went straight to the top. On last night’s show, I reported Greene to Batman.
Kimmel addressed the Greene “brouhaha” at the top of JImmy Kimmel Live! last night, describing how Greene apparently filed a report with the Capital Police over Kimmel’s Tuesday night monologue in which the comedian joked, in reference to Greene, “Wow, where is Will Smith when you really need him?”
Jimmy also called her a “klan mom” in his lead-up, but MTG wisely let that part slide. Even she knows the best jokes contain a kernel of truth. So she’s not entirely humorless! And she’s probably got holes in all her sheets of her to provide it. Here’s MTG’s 911-call.
Officer? I would like to report a joke. https://t.co/3ournv9RwG

As if Jimmy hasn’t been harangued by harpies (band name alert!) enough already this week? As for MTG’s histrionics, is the threat in this joke is that Will Smith is a Slapper for hire who just so happens to be unavailable for new commissions at this time? I know they just let any old fool walk up in the Capital and wreak havoc these days, but Will’s got bigger concerns at the moment. He’s hardly about to march up in there and slap a slice of bologna on her face with his bare hand. His palm is retired from public service. None, she persisted.
Greene took to Twitter yet again, this time writing, “You weren’t joking. You hide your misogyny and your racism behind your ‘jokes’ on @ABC. This was a dog whistle to the violent left to assault me or worse, and your already inspiring fantasies of violence against me. How many new death threats will I get that are your fans?”
Greene later tweeted, “@jimmykimmel your fans called my office today in direct response to you inciting physical violence towards me. It’s not a joke. You knew exactly what you were doing. @ABC and their parent company @WaltDisneyCo should not allow your misogyny & threats of violence.”
So many@s! Whose narc is this? Can somebody please come get her from her? It’s all so very ridiculous. But Jimmy took MTG’s outrage on the chin and made another joke about it. via Deadline:
Kimmel addressed her reaction on air last night – pointing out a misspelled “your” in one of her tweets – and noted that not only does he not condone “death or any kind of threats against anyone, especially because I get dozens of [death threats] a week from the sickos who align with you,” but that Greene herself “is the one who endorsed fringe conspiracy theories” and “repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians.”
Kimmel then said he’d follow Greene’s lead and report her, not to the police, but to the Justice League, at which point he sat down and composed his report.
“Dear Batman,” Kimmel wrote, “I’m writing about a woman who might be a supervillain. Like the Riddler she believes the world is full of coded messages. Like the Joker she thinks she is funny, and like the Penguin she is five foot three. Please check her out. Love to Robin. Love, Jimmy.”
Turning to sidekick Guillermo, Kimmel said, “Get this to Gotham City at once! And don’t hesitate! This is for the Caped Crusader to handle!”
dead line notice that “The Capitol Police have not yet confirmed Greene’s complaint,” but you have to give them a minute. Do you know how hard it is to talk on the phone when your entire staff is hunched over in hysterics laughing their asses off? Lady, they know exactly where you were on January 6th. And whether she likes it or not, we still live in a society. Even the Joker knows that much! Here’s Jimmy’s Batman monologue:
