The funnyman showed up to the Emmys looking like he fell asleep in a tanning bed, and while Ryan Seacrest and company shut their mouths about it on the red carpet, non-famous observers weren’t so kind. You can take a look at a random sampling of the aggression below…
will arnett is in the comedy business but doesn't seem to be doing duckface with a spray tan with an ounce of irony http://t.co/SgPqasbHJL— Al Shipley (@alshipley) September 23, 2013
The biggest mystery on Emmys night is who let Will Arnett spend eight days in a tanning bed.— Jace Lacob (@televisionary) September 23, 2013
It's nice to see Will Arnett representing people of color.— Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC) September 23, 2013
This is late, but Will Arnett is so tan, his Canadian citizenship should be revoked #Emmys— Joan Tintor (@TintorDetto) September 23, 2013
Nothing like the entire user base of Twitter making the same Will Arnett-John Boehner joke. Good job, everyone. #Emmys— Alex Skinner (@AlexSkinner) September 23, 2013
Between Will Arnett being orange and all the memorials, the Emmys are depressing. "I gotta go" switch to the more uplifting Breaking Bad.— Pezerk (@Pezerk) September 23, 2013
Here’s the thing about the red carpet. The goal for women might be to stand out in a fun, exciting and beautiful way, but the goal for men is simply to blend in. An overwhelming majority of the time men are talked about on Fashion Police, it’s for a hideous mistake, not for looking good.
Arnett was on hand to promote his new CBS show The Millers. No doubt most observers would have rather he been there to announce a reconciliation with his ex-wife Amy Poehler, but we can’t always get what we want-- like normal looking skin.
