Alright, here are all the details you need to know about this current Late Night Friendly Feud to raise charity money between Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert. The two have been BFFs for the last 6 months. The last week Colbert auctioned off a painting for charity and raised $26K for the cause.
Stephen Colbert went on his show the next day and made the announcement that his best friend of 6 months Jimmy Fallon was going to match the funds with his own donation.
People were excited, but there was a problem…
Colbert never actually asked Fallon if he’d match the money, he just spoke on behalf of his friend’s wallet. Fallon took to the airwaves the next night and said that though he’s down for the cause but never said that he’d match funds. So Fallon did what anyone else would do, he asked his audience to pledge money and if they could raise the $26K Stephen Colbert will come on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and sing Rebecca Black’s “Friday” live with The Roots.
This was news to Colbert since Fallon spoke on his behalf without checking. Last night on The Colbert Report Stephen was shocked by the news.
If you wish to donate, go here but it appears that the money has already been raised, leaving Colbert to address the issue. The ball is in Stephen’s court, he better start working on those complex “Friday” lyrics by this Friday.
