Jimmy Kimmel is about to get canceled.

Audio emerged Monday of the late-night host allegedly using the N-word multiple times while mimicking rapper Snoop Dogg during the recording of a comedic Christmas album in 1996.

Kimmel admitted to using the racial epithet during a podcast interview in 2013, Fox News reported.

However, the album was not made public until Fox News exclusively published the audio on Monday. The album is titled, "A Family Christmas in Your A**."

In the song "Christmastime in the LBC," the singer refers to Santa Claus as the "fat n***** in a sleigh giving sh** away," refers to Jesus as the "n***** in the manger," and mocks black culture, saying, "I told that motherf****r Santa, bring a pick for my afro."

"Me and my n***** down in LBC, we'll smoke that motherf****r Christmas tree," Kimmel says in the song, Fox News reported.

The development could not come at a worse time for Kimmel.

Kimmel announced last week that he is taking leave from his show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live," for the duration of the summer amid a growing blackface controversy.

"I'm taking this summer off to spend even more time with my family. There's nothing wrong. I'm healthy, my family's healthy, I just need a couple of months off," Kimmel said in a statement.

Then, as TheBlaze reported, an interview with actress Megan Fox resurfaced over the weekend showing Kimmel laugh as Fox described being sexually harassed and commodified by one of Hollywood's top directors when she was still a teenager.

ABC, which hosts Kimmel's late-night show, has not addressed the controversy.
