How Jimmy Fallon Promises To Support Survivors Of The Parkland School Shooting

"I stand behind you guys."

Following the recent school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., late-night hosts have taken time on their shows to share their condolences and call for action on gun reform. Jimmy Kimmel had an emotional response to the shooting, calling on Congress to pass "real laws" to prevent future tragedies, while James Corden shared his perspective on gun violence as a Brit in the United States.

Now Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon has weighed in. Monday night marked his first full episode of the show since the shooting occurred, having aired shortened segments during the Olympics last week. He shared that "our hearts go out" to both the victims' loved ones, as well as the survivors.


"What they had to live through, and what they have to live with is something I can't even imagine," he said, going on to share his support for the students' activism. "They're speaking out with more guts, passion, conviction, and common sense than most adults ... They are angry, and they're doing something about it and creating change."

Fallon called it a "real revolution" — and one he's ready to be a part of. He spoke about the March For Our Lives, which will take place in Washington, D.C., on March 24, and has received donations from names like George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey. "I just want to say, I stand behind you guys, and I will be marching alongside you, with my wife and two children, in D.C., to show our support," Fallon said, to applause from the audience.
