Jimmy Kimmel Catches Epic Hate for Insulting eSports

Renowned funny-man Jimmy Kimmel is catching some epic hate from fans of eSports this week. That’s an understatement. A better way to say it is that he just stepped on the Bald-Faced Hornet’s nest of the internet by making fun of YouTube gaming and fans of “lets-play” videos. Well, as you can imaging, this group of passionate aficionados was not please to say the least. Watch the video after the break.


So. A quick check on YouTube has the like/dislike ration at 9,400 to 38,600 as of this posting. I’m thinking that eSports fans are not just made, but livid. Did Mr. Kimmel go to far? Is he a troll or do you think he’s spot on? Why do you think people are reacting as strongly as they are? What are your opinions of YouTube Gaming and “Let’s Plays” and eSports? Let us know in the comments below!
