“No matter what anyone says, this is nothing more or less than Jimmy Kimmel re-enacting whatever happened to him as a child that stuck with him all these years-to say 'Oh it's no big deal' is to miss the point.
Apparently it WAS such a big deal to Kimmel that he has to act it out on all these innocent kids to relieve the humiliation and broken trust he experienced.
People forget that little children aren't adults. Their survival both physically and emotionally depends on adults, particularly their parents.
Every time a parent does something like this, the child's trust is broken, and any parent who would DO this is probably doing lots of other things in which they dump their own toxic emotional stuff onto their kids-without thinking there is a thing wrong with it.
By the way, there is no such thing as a child who is a 'brat'......
And we wonder why there are so many bullies in schools.....here we have a powerful adult being a big bully to little children.......shame on you Jimmy....”
