Jimmy Kimmel wore rainbow suspenders to the Emmy’s in honor of Robin Williams.
According to E! News, Kimmel took the Los Angeles Metro with his wife, Molly McNearney, to the Nokia Theatre, and documented their journey in a couple of photos on Instagram. Perhaps the most touching photo was the one where Kimmel held one of his suspenders and used the hashtag “#mork” to ensure that people knew what he was wearing and why.
“Blue line to #Emmys #Mork,” Kimmel captioned the photo below.
Jimmy Kimmel’s rainbow suspenders are only the first glimpse into how Robin Williams will be remembered at the Emmy Awards tonight. There is expected to be a lengthy tribute to the late actor, who committed suicide earlier this month. Williams’ longtime pal, Billy Crystal, will be leading the tribute, likely with a speech of sorts, and a video montage of some of the actor’s best moments. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Crystal has been silent on social media since the passing of Williams. He sent out one simple tweet that seemed to sum up the feelings of everyone in the world, “no words.” Those two words were simply heartbreaking.
Emmys executive producer Don Mischer said that Williams will be given “the proper and meaningful remembrance he so well deserves.” It is unknown exactly how long the tribute will be or who else will participate, but, as you can imagine, it is going to be very emotional.
Jimmy Kimmel and his rainbow suspenders have made news because the tribute, though simple, was very touching. Of course, the fact that he took the Metro to the Emmys was hilarious, so the story is a win all around.

According to ABC News, this is the first time that Jimmy and his wife have stepped out together since welcoming their daughter, Jane. And as for the whole baby thing, Jimmy seems happy to start over.
“It’s interesting how much you forget. Did you know they don’t eat pizza at this stage? Rest assured we’re going to do everything in our power to make this the best baby since a cute little guy called Jesus.”
Did you like Jimmy Kimmel’s rainbow suspenders? It does seem clear that his simple tribute was appreciated by all.
