NBC’s late night host Jimmy Fallon made a fool of himself on Thursday while singing a song about the newest COVID variant sweeping across America.
The Tonight Show host encouraged mask-wearing while singing about XBB.1.5, the newest strain of COVID the establishment wants you to be scared of.
“Put on your mask when you’re inside a facility. It could be a robot from a “Star Wars” trilogy. It’s XBB.1.5, not OMG or MP3 or [inaudible] or an eye chart made by a really high guy. Sounds like the password of your parent’s wi-fi. It’s XBB.1.5. XBB.1.5,” Fallon continues.
Rather than drawing praise, Fallon’s bit elicited disgust and mockery on social media.
