A Fox News pundit makes a thoughtless joke regarding Jimmy Kimmel.

During a segment on the Greg Gutfeld show, Fox News personality Kat Timpf made a joke regarding Jimmy Kimmel that later blew up in her face, according to Raw Story.

  • In a joking rant about Kimmel using his child as an excuse to get out of his show, Timpf said her life as a childless woman with a cat who needs heart medicine is much harder:

“It’s a lot harder to hold down a cat than a kid,” she exclaimed as some of her co-panelists started shaking their heads. “Babies don’t have claws and if they do, you should see a priest.”

  • A cringing Gutfeld proceeded to inform Timpf that Kimmel has a son with a heart condition, causing her to sit up straight in obvious discomfort. She later issued an apology saying:

“First of all, I’m very sorry for what I said in the last segment. I was just trying to make a lighthearted joke. I had no idea. I’m sorry to Jimmy Kimmel, and I am sorry to America. I had no idea and I’m very sorry, I’m an idiot.”
