Tragically, it's becoming more and more routine for late-night chat show show hosts to open their programmes with their thoughts on the latest mass shooting to take place on US soil.
Ostensibly, hosts like Conan O'Brien, James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel are hired to front lighthearted late-night chat shows, but viewers now expect a few words from the presenters when incidents like Saturday night's shooting in Las Vegas occur.
Acknowledging this, a visibly emotional Jimmy Kimmel opened his show with a tribute to the people who lost their lives when gunman, Stephen Paddock, opened fire from a hotel room on the Las Vegas strip over the weekend.
"Here we are again in the aftermath of another terrible, inexplicable, shocking and painful tragedy. This time in Las Vegas, which happens to be my home town, Cleeto's home town and Cleeto Snr's home town," he began, choking back tears.
Clearly struggling to understand the motivation behind such an atrocity, Jimmy broke down several times as he made reference to the various people who lost their lives while attending a country music festival in the famous city.
"It's the kind of thing that makes you want to throw up or give up. It's too much to even process," he told viewers before taking aim at the politicians who refuse to address gun control in the United States.
YouTubers responded to Jimmy's devastation, with one social media user writing: "Respect to Jimmy for using his platform to speak some truth."
"Jimmy, thank you for standing up and saying what needs to be said. You are an inspiration," added another.
