Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel’s bitter feud comes to the Oscars
Apologies to Matt Damon.
One of the top Google searches on Sunday evening was “Why does Jimmy Kimmel hate Matt Damon,” after he made a joke about Damon’s new “Chinese ponytail movie, also known as The Great Wall.” But if you’ve been paying close attention to Kimmel’s late-night career, you know this feud goes back more than a decade, when Kimmel would end segments by saying, “Apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time.”
Damon’s fired back, though.
They’re deep in this bit.
He also singled out the “overrated” Streep, whose anti-Trump Golden Globes speech launched a flood of tweets, by giving her a standing ovation. Kimmel got a bit more serious and asked Americans to “reach out to one person you disagree with… and have a positive, considerate conversation” to “make America great again.”
And he asked us to remember last year’s Oscars: “I want to say thank you the President Trump. Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist?”
Kimmel’s feud with Damon didn’t end with the monologue, though.
