I don't think it it was particularly insulting but if it was meant to be funny it missed the mark.

you guys are waaaaay to sensitive. as far as i've ever heard, kimmel [in spite of his teutonic namesake] has and always been a friend to jews. the clip was funny not because it picks on jews but rather how it skewers neo hippies -- aka hipsters. seriously, lighten up. life is too short to be paranoid. ultimately we are all subject to a final judgement, instead let the higher power do so. so relax and live your life to the fullest!

Why Does This Pass Political Correctness Muster?
Let Mr. Kimmel keep his antics within his own "religious" group. This SHOULD BE very un-PC, but the apparently laughing at Jews BECAUSE they are Jews is OK on the polictical correctness (PC) scale.
Will he dare to compare African-American hair to 'Hipsters" hair? I don't think so.

Two schools of thought...A.....A little rediculous B. Can't a Hassidic Jew be HIP??? just sayin.......lol......

Kimmel is a big shot comedian with a staff of writers and this is the best he can come up with for a (cheap) laugh? And make no mistake, my fellow Jews, the ARE laughing at us. We have become immune to the many ways in which the world insults and belittles us, so much so that most of the time we don't even fight back. Today they're making fun of our beards.....tomorrow they'll be cutting them off in the streets (anyone remember Germany?) I agree with #5, it's time for everyone to come home. Israel's not perfect, but it's ours and we can make it better. America? Not our home, never will be, and getting more unhospitable by the day.

Lighten up, Nancy. It was meant to be a little stupid, and thus funny. I saw no insults at all.
