Just days after receiving some harsh words from a fellow Hollywood host, it looks like Jay Leno is getting the wrath again, but this time from a competing late night funnyman.

On Monday night (August 27), Jimmy Kimmel opened up to the press during a media panel in New York City about his feelings towards Leno, saying, "F**k him,” before adding that their former friendship was "fake."

The "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host continued on about his negative feelings towards the "Tonight Show" talent, explaining that the "most fun" he had ever had was impersonating Jay back in 2010 after he infamously took away the coveted slot from Conan O' Brien.

Ending his New York panel rant with another jab, Kimmel said, "People, it turns out, really don’t like Jay Leno.”

As previously reported by GossipCenter, Howard Stern had just taken to the airwaves of his radio show calling Jay a "spineless maggot," before later adding another barb, saying, "Jay Leno is the biggest wuss on the planet… He’s a back-stabbing c**bag.”
