Since the renowned actor and comedian now stands banned, you can no longer expect his voice as Jimmy Pesto Sr. Character.

Jimmy Pesto, one of the very popular and fan-favorite characters of Bob Burgers’ show will not have Jay’s voice in the background.

“Bob’s Burgers has apparently banned Jay Johnston, the voice actor for Jimmy Pesto Sr., from the show after allegedly participating in the Capitol riot back in January.”, the Twitter post read.

Jay Johnston is Banned!

Jan. 6 Capitol Riot that brought a lot of consequences along with it was a deadly event. Plenty of riot-goers who participated in the riot were immediately charged by the federal and were thrown in jail.

The #FBI is still seeking information on people who took part in the violence at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. If you know this individual, visit tips.fbi.gov. Refer to photo 247 in your tip.”, the Twitter post from FBI below.

Moreover, many MAGA personalities were also charged guilty. Several subpoenas and lawsuits came right at them.

In this Jan 6. Capitol, a famous participant name that came up and has eventually paid the price is Jay Johnston. 

Jay Johnston who we know for Mr. ShowArrested Development, and Anchorman, is not under arrest for the Jan. 6 Riots. However, he was spotted in an FBI Wanted Photo. In addition, he was also spotted in a video from the Capitol.

In the video that he was spotted in, “alongside rioters taking pictures as Trump supporters push their way toward the building,”, according to the Daily Beast.

There were only two people who were familiar with the matter. The 11-Season long-running animation sitcom Bob’s Burger is no longer ready to have Johnston reprise his role as the voice of Jimmy Pesto Sr. of one of the most popular Fox shows.

Furthermore, sources are calling it a ”ban”.

The other one, quite aware of the matter, gave a similar opinion to the situation. He said that the cast and crew of Bob’s Burgers along with Fox don’t wish to make a very big deal out of everything that has happened with Johnston.
