Jimmy Kimmel got in a Twitter spat with Roy Moore after sending his writer to troll the Alabama U.S. Senate candidate

  • Jimmy Kimmel Live! writer Tony Barbieri, who has been sent out to troll big stories in the persona of “Jake Byrd” for more than a decade, last night showed his “support” for Moore by disrupting a campaign event in a church. This sparked a back-and-forth on Twitter between Moore and Kimmel, with Moore denouncing Kimmel for mocking “our Christian values” and inviting him to “do it man to man.” To which Kimmel responded: “Sounds great Roy - let me know when you get some Christian values and I’ll be there!” Moore tweeted back, “Despite D.C. and Hollywood Elites' bigotry towards southerners, Jimmy, we'll save you a seat on the front pew.” Kimmel shot back: “OK Roy, but I'm leaving my daughters at home! P.S. - wear that cute little leather vest.”
