Jimmy Kimmel Live Hires Human Meme Ken Bone As a Post-Debate Correspondent

Thirty-four-year-old undecided voter and actual human being Ken Bone has experienced the terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, and the creamy middles of becoming a human meme after he was able to ask a question at Sunday’s presidential debate. Following his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, Bone has been invited to appear via satellite as a “special correspondent” for Kimmel’s live post–presidential debate show on Wednesday, October 19. Unfortunately, with fame and adoration comes scrutiny, as the married power plant employee and father of one learned after doing a Reddit AMA yesterday. Having publicly acknowledged his Reddit username during the AMA, Gizmodo unearthed Bone’s previous comments on a range of topics from porn to committing insurance fraud to the murder of Trayvon Martin, which he describes as “justified.” Ken Bone may remain undecided, but truly, it is much harder for the nation to stay undecided on Ken Bone. We’ve reached out to ABC to see if Bone will still appear on the show despite the revelations, and will update this post if we hear back.
