Jimmy Kimmel has found himself in lukewarm water after U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed a joke he made about her was a threat of violence. Greene’s office told USA Today that “they take threats of violence towards the Congresswoman very seriously.” Adding, “On Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel called for violence to be committed against Congresswoman Greene. It will not be tolerated.”

After Greene tweeted out a clip from “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” addressing the joke, Kimmel fired back on Twitter and is continuing to roast the congresswoman. “Officer? I would like to report a joke,” Kimmel wrote on Twitter, mocking Greene for her previous claim. Greene immediately fired back at the comedian, tweeting, “You weren’t joking. You hide your misogyny and your racism behind your ‘jokes’ on @ABC.” Greene goes on to write that she has received death threats from Kimmel’s fans, following the on-air remark.

A day after the online exchange, Kimmel addressed the debacle on his show. “It’s amazing how quickly you can go from ‘These liberals! You can’t say anything anymore’ to ‘What did you say? I’m calling the cops,'” he said. “Must be that cancel culture they’re always talking about.”
