Jay Leno jokes Times Square bomb suspect is Team Coco. Funny or crass?

Posted on

Jay-Leno-TimeSquare

Image Credit: Paul Drinkwater/NBCTwo days after Conan O’Brien vaguely criticized Jay Leno on 60 Minutes, the host of The Tonight Show hit back on his own show — sort of. Last night, Leno revolved part of his monologue around Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square bomb scare suspect who also happens to be on Facebook. For a bit, Leno imagined what Shahzad’s Facebook page would look like (Activities: Beach Volleyball, Rollerblading, Blowing up Nissan Pathfinders…badum-ching!), and included “Team Coco” in Shahzad’s “Member of” section. (See the episode embedded after the jump.)

Okay, so it wasn’t necessarily a dig on Conan, just the devoted group of followers who have spent the better part of 2010 ridiculing every high-pitched word Leno’s uttered. But, still, is it funny or crass to insinuate that terrorists prefer Conan? [Daily Wh.at]
