Sources close to the show tell The Blast that ever since Kimmel re-ignited his campaign against the Republicans' health care proposals, the comedian has had some issues with protestors at the show.
We're told the show has responded by adding security to the tapings — increasing personnel at both the front and back entrances. According to our sources, the additional security consists of highly-trained, off-duty police officers.
Our sources say that in addition to protestors at the show, several "concerning" emails and letters have been sent to production.
We reached out to a rep for the show for comment — so far, no word back.
