Jimmy Fallon Was Devastated Over the Backlash When He Ruffled Donald Trump’s Hair

Jimmy Fallon is still feeling the backlash from ruffling Donald Trump’s hair on “The Tonight Show” last fall. And in a new interview with the “New York Times,” Jimmy says the controversy hit him hard.

“I’m a people pleaser. If there’s one bad thing on Twitter about me, it will make me upset.

“So, after this happened, I was devastated. I didn’t mean anything by it. I was just trying to have fun.”

And he doesn’t blame people for being upset, “They have a right to be mad. If I let anyone down, it hurt my feelings that they didn’t like it. I got it.”

He added, “I didn’t do it to humanize him. I almost did it to minimize him. I didn’t think that would be a compliment.”

He also said he regrets not addressing the controversy on the air.
