It seems as though as though the more vocal members of the gaming community hasn’t calmed down as Kimmel posted yet another video in which he showcased some of the more negative comments made on his previous video. These comments highlighted the best of the worst, many of them wishing death and illness on the late night host, though he took much of the comments in stride using them as a gag for his audience.
