Kimmel Guest Host Tracee Ellis Ross Explains Sexual Harassment With Children’s Book (Video)

“Black-ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross addressed sexual harassment head-on at the top of Tuesday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel live,” with a satirical explanation presented in the form of a children’s book.

Filling in as host for Kimmel, who is off this week while his infant son recovers from heart surgery, Ross started things off on a serious note. “It isn’t a sex scandal,” she said. “It isn’t a Hollywood scandal. It isn’t even a scandal. It is a systemic problem, about the abuse of power that takes place across all industries, and had enabled a culture of inequity to persist for far too long.”

Ross then noted that a lot of men seem to have a problem understanding this, and pulled out “The Handsy Man,” a mashup parody of Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein that explains harassment.

“You may not Compliment my butt/You may not call me ‘ho’ or ‘slut’/and even if you’re stoned or drunk/do not expose me to your junk” goes one passage.
