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.

I'm so glad Jay Leno wants to turn time square getting blown up into low class joke about Conan. Really this is not funny. Guess Jay Leno didnt have family and friends that died in the WTC. SO LOW CLASS !!!

He will have to pay the price of this joke. Terrorism is a serious issue and it is not supposed to be a topic for fun.

If Jay wants to poke fun at Conan, fine, that's fine.



But it was the TYPE of joke that I found uncomfortable. Basically associating Conan O'Brien and his fans with an attempted murderer.



I think I have a pretty good sense of humor, but that was a little inappropriate.



While I've been a big Conan fan from the very early days of Late Night, I still appreciated watching Jay at 11:30. I even attended two Jay tapings on various vacations I've taken to LA over the last 12 years. But after the whole blow-up this year, I basically sided with Conan. I stopped watching Jay (and NBC in general) totally cold turkey. And crap like this, only reinforces my decision.



Sure, Conan will lose to Jay in the ratings once he's on TBS, but so what? As long as it's a good show (and I'm confident it will be), that's all that matters. Higher ratings do not equal a better show.

No one will remember when this disgrace and failed abortion dies.
The sound of laughter happens when he's in the ground.
Victims of murder wouldn't even care about the talentless
s*** Leno.

MoronoLeno did anything for money.
This filthy ass face clearly couldn't take care of children;
it had no use for its wife, so it rubbed down
its cars for sexual gratification.
NBC throws money away like garbage;
that doesn't bring more happiness to
anyone, including O'Brien.
Letterman impresses no one, even if he's a billionaire.
