Conan O'Brien Calls Out 'Conan' Writer For Social Media Rant


Tweeting something stupid about your boss and getting called out by that same boss is embarrassing.

Tweeting something stupid about your famous boss and getting called out publicly by that same famous boss is, in a word, worse.

That's just what happened to a staff writer over at Conan. Comedian Andres du Bouchet recently went on a Twitter tirade complaining about pretty much everything having to do with late night comedy.

As you can imagine the tweets were later deleted but according to several media reports du Bouchet poo-pooed celebrity cameos, pranks, hashtags, lip-syncing, games - dubbing it "Prom King Comedy."

According to Uproxx du Bouchet later tweeted: "Sorry for being a bloviating elitist windbag last night. I know tons of talented people are making the stuff I enjoy shitting all over."
A certain beloved ginger wasn't too pleased with the rant, nor the half ass apology. A few days later Conan AKA du Bouchet's boss tweeted: "I wish one of my writers would focus on making my show funnier instead of tweeting stupid things about the state of late night comedy".

The Prom King hath spoken.
