With Colbert making his “Late Show” premiere on Tuesday, Fallon fired off a smart-aleck tweet wishing Colbert and his colleagues the best of luck — in a totally backhanded way.
“To our friends at @colbertlateshow, congrats on your first show and hopefully dozens more. Break a finger,” Fallon tweeted Tuesday.
If it’s one thing that Fallon knows — besides late-night hosting, of course — it’s hand injuries.
In June, the “Saturday Night Live” alum was forced to cancel taping of his show after he was hospitalized by a hand injury that he later likened to “a cheap horror movie.”
According to Fallon, he injured his hand after tripping and falling on a rug in his kitchen. While Fallon was catching his fall, his finger went “sideways.”
