Comedian Tom Green has slammed U.S. late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel for allegedly stealing one of his skits.
The Freddy Got Fingered star claims he was the originator of a house-painting prank, which featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week, and he is upset the segment wasn’t credited to his former late-night program, The Tom Green Show.
During the skit, Kimmel painted a relative’s house without her knowledge, while she was out of town.
Taking to Instagram on Friday, Green vented: “Hey @jimmykimmel just saw your latest Instagram post where you painted your aunt’s house. Wonder where ya got that idea?
“Sometimes I don’t understand why people can copy all of my classic bits from The Tom Green Show and get no push back? If a stand up comic steals material they are crucified!! Love ya Jimmy but I want a writers credit. Have me on the show sometime and we can talk about it.”
Tom signed off by sending fans to a link to video footage from the bit featured on The Tom Green Show, which aired from 1994 to 2000.
“In the meantime I want all my Tom Green Show fans to go leave a comment on Jimmys post and let him know what ya think. #ripoff. #jokethief,” he shared.
