Jimmy Kimmel sparked backlash after joking that hospitals should turn away unvaccinated people if they contract the coronavirus.

Kimmel made the remarks during his opening monologue on Tuesday.

"Vaccinated person having a heart attack? Yes, come right on in," he said. "Unvaccinated guy who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy."

Kimmel was referring to people using the anti-parasitic medication Ivermectin as prophylaxis or treatment for Covid-19.

Kimmel, who returned to the show from summer hiatus on Tuesday, was dismayed that nothing had changed in the two months that he was gone.

He said unvaccinated people should not fill beds in hospital intensive-care units if they get sick.

Twitter users were outraged. Some said by Kimmel's logic, drug addicts should not be treated if they overdose on fentanyl, or alcoholics who need liver detox.

One Twitter user wrote:

"If everyone were treated like Jimmy Kimmel wants for unvaccinated: No treatment for smokers with lung cancer, nor drinkers with cirrhosis, nor auto accident victims who weren't wearing a seat belt, nor skin cancer patients who sunbathed nor heart attack victims who ate too much."

Another user tweeted:

"@jimmykimmel back from hiding after your black face skit. Now saying unvaccinated people should die. You're sick."

And a third person wrote:

"@jimmykimmel remember when the unvaccinated supported you when your child was ill? I do! Mind your own business Clown face!... #CancelKimmel."
