Most are not thankful for Jimmy Fallon covering Prince at the Macy’s Day Parade

Let’s be honest, the Macy’s Day Parade isn’t the coolest of traditions. 

Sure it’s something corny and sweet to watch while you’re cooking up a storm for your hungry loved ones, but many of the acts that make their way through Harold Square are aimed at generations too young or too old for most of us. 

And sometimes, well, they just miss the mark completely. 

Example A: Jimmy Fallon sang the late, great Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” this Thanksgiving morning. 

We’re sure that Fallon and the wonderful Roots meant the song as another loving tribute to the legendary artist.

But many weren’t really feeling Fallon stepping into Prince’s purple shoes. Some would have rather The Roots get the stage to themselves. Some found it musically offensive. Some found it downright problematic.

But don’t worry, Fallon had a great time. Because that’s what it’s all about, right? 

Try to have a Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
