Double Standard: Kimmel Mocks Karl Malone in Blackface

After Megyn Kelly's remarks on her NBC show questioning why dressing in a Halloween costume as a tribute was considered blackface when it isn't done to mock the subject of the costume, she was fired from NBC. 

Now footage of Jimmy Kimmel from his Comedy Central's The Man Show days has re-surfaced with him clearly mocking NBA legend Karl Malone while in full blackface. 

The caricature of Malone clearly mocks his appearance and speech, which certainly should qualify as blackface by any definition. 

Should Jimmy Kimmel be held accountable for his blackface comedy from the past? Or does he get a free pass?
