The infamous and hilarious feud between Damon and Kimmel dated back to 2005 from the third season of Jimmy Kimmel Live! The feud started when Kimmel made an offhand comment at the end of the show regarding booting Damon as he would never be cut for time. The late night show host said, ‘I want to apologize to Matt Damon, we ran out of time’. Next, Damon appeared on the show and continued the feud. He said, ‘I knew you were going to fu*king do it’.   

This series of insults and jokes continued throughout the coming years in the form of different comedic videos. Damon even went as far as to team up with Sarah Silverman (Jimmy Kimmel then girlfriend) and released a raunchy video named ‘I’m Fuc*ing Matt Damon’. Kimmel then responded by targeting Ben Affleck, who is Damon’s cherished loved one.
