Tom Green Accuses Jimmy Kimmel of Stealing of His Skit

AceShowbiz -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 was featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this week, ends August 23, and he is upset the segment wasn’t credited to his former late-night programme, “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, August 23, 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.
