Jimmy Kimmel Takes Jab At ‘Obnoxious Jerk’ Matt Damon After World Series Game 5 [VIDEO]
The 50-year-old host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and 48-year-old Oscar winner were seen sitting together at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday night for Game 5 of the World Series, which the Red Sox won over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The pair were wearing similar t-shirts that read “I’m With Stupid” and had arrows pointing at each other.
Kimmel and Damon are known for being enemies for about ten years ever since the former bumped the latter from his packed guest list.
Kimmel did not hold back in mocking Damon on Monday, calling the actor an “obnoxious jerk” and comparing him to a rat.
“There’s nothing worse than paying a lot of money for tickets and having to sit next to an obnoxious jerk the whole time,” Kimmel said of Damon. “And that is the last time I ever use Groupon again. You know he eats people’s unfinished food off the floor, like a rodent. Half of the game, he’s down on his hands and knees eating garbage,” he added, mimicking a rat eating food.
Kimmel also made fun of Damon’s longtime friend and fellow Red Sox fan Ben Affleck, who sat beside them at Sunday’s game in Los Angeles. At one point, Kimmel called Affleck the “big loser” of the evening for “making the mistake” of standing between him and Damon while both their “I’m With Stupid” shirts pointed at him. The photo the late-night host showed drew raucous laughter from the audience.
“I believe they call it collateral damage,” Kimmel said of the photo.
Dodgers fan Kimmel also commented on the result of the World Series, joking: “We know the real story is the Dodgers swept the World Series and four games and the lame-stream media won’t report that.” He also joked that the honey mustard they served at Dodgers stadium caused his team to lose the series.
