Conan

Collateral Damage in

Leno's Terror Joke

5/5/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Leno cracked a joke on his show last night, implying that the Times Square bombing suspect doesn't just support terror ... he also supports Conan O'Brien.


During the gag, Leno created a fake Facebook page for Faisal Shahzad -- on which he claims the perp was a member of several online groups, including Al Qaeda, the Pakistan Frequent Flyers Club ... and Team Coco.

Zing?

Just when you think Jay Leno can't go any lower. He's not funny and he's got no class....

Jay Leno thinks THIS is funny? It's in poor taste. I am not surprised. I've met this man - he was part of a car club meeting I attended. He's a MAJOR jerk. Snide, self impressed and just an empowered a/s/s.

Oh, yes. Because if anything is funny, it's a possible attack that could have killed innocent Americans.



Continue to take the high road, Leno. Dumbass.

Really Jay, really? Have we forgotten about 9/11 so thoroughly that we can now make jokes about attempted bombings only two days later? Fail.

conan didn't trash leno on 60 mins. also, this joke was a bit too far. i don't understand why this is funny to anyone. this guy was about to kill so many people. haha? and saying a terrorist supports conan, is the lowest of the low. too far, jay. too far.

Just when you think Jay can't get any more odious, he proves you wrong. Like Letterman said on his show, Jay is a boob!

So no one is upset that the first few minutes of Letterman's monologue last night was full of TS Bomber jokes? I counted at least 7:

Even Jimmy Fallon took a shot:



'Hey, we caught a suspect in the failed Times Square attack. The suspect says he acted alone. Yeah, really alone. Even his bomb wasn’t in on it.'



http://laughlines.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/05/05/fallon-he-acted-alone/



The bomber was reported by news outlets to be on Facebook.



If Conan had been still on the air, he'd be making jokes also. And if Conan had made the joke, targeting Team Leno, TTS or NBC, the Coco-ites would be going on and on about how hilarious the joke was.



So either please spare us the indignation, or include Letterman and Fallon in your rants.

This was not funny. Jay Leno you are an a**hole. It was a low blow. It is in bad taste to make fun of the guy who lost his dream and whom you took back your show from...not that I would expect anything more from Leno...this is the kind of thing he does. This is also a stab at Conan's fans, jealous much? Leno's facebook fanpage has only a fraction of the amount Conan has.
