Tracee Ellis Ross filled in for Jimmy Kimmel on his ABC late night show Tuesday night, as Kimmel stayed home with his infant son after his latest heart surgery.

“Let’s start with the fact it isn’t a sex scandal. 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 said.
