Jimmy Kimmel apologizes to Quinta Brunson for carrying out a comedy bit during her Emmy acceptance speech.

KIMMEL: “That was a dumb comedy bit that we thought it would be funny. I lost. And then I drank too much and I had to be dragged out on the stage and then people got upset. They said, I stole your moment and and maybe I did and I'm very sorry if I did do that, I'm sorry. I did do that actually. And also, the last thing I would ever want to do is upset you because I think so much of you. And, and I, you know, I think, you know that, I hope you know that I did.”

BRUNSON: “Well, Jimmy, let me just say thank you. It is very kind of you to say that I honestly was in such a moment of just having a good time, like I won my first a Emmy, I was up there like happy and I was wrapped up in the moment and just having a good time. I don't know. I didn't see any of that. I saw, I saw you and I saw Will Arnett and my Emmy. And I was just like, oh my God, I'm having so much fun, but thank you, that's kind. But honestly I had a good night. I had a great night.”
