Jimmy Kimmel slammed Jay Leno, saying he "sold out." On Jan. 4, ABC News reported that the late night host dissed the "Tonight Show" host in his new interview with Rolling Stone Magazine. An advanced copy of the new issue was released and it has reignited the feud between Kimmel and Leno -- and maybe even made it worse.
"As a comedian, you can’t not have disdain for what he’s done: He totally sold out," Kimmel reportedly said about Leno. Kimmel continued to say that Leno "was a master chef who opened a Burger King." This is not the first people have heard of Kimmel's dislike of Leno, either.
When Kimmel slams Leno, saying that he "sold out," it definitely stirs the late night pot. While there is always competition between comedians and talk show hosts, usually there is also a sort of friendly camaraderie that goes along with said competition, but it seems as though Kimmel just doesn't care for Leno.
Jimmy's attitude toward the popular late night host could have something to do with the whole Conan O'Brien / Late Night thing that erupted a couple of years ago. Jimmy didn't hide his disapproval either. It is unknown if Leno will respond to Kimmel's comments or if this will turn in to some sort major back and forth late night battle.
Since Kimmel slammed Leno and said he "sold out," have you taken a side? Are you team Leno or team Kimmel?
