While Kimmel's production crew managed to get a tweet read by David onto the birthday segment that aired Monday, there were so many other tweets and takes they couldn't use because David just couldn't stop laughing. When they showed this footage to Kimmel, he decided he needed to share it with his audience.
"These people are so mean," David said at one point in the segment. "I know they're writing the same things about me."
He struggled through several different tweets, breaking up and laughing infectiously throughout as Kimmel was called everything an "egg plant emoji" to a guy who looks like he has to take a poop on TV.
"I didn't think Larry was capable of that kind of joy in his life," Kimmel said. And so, even though it was at his expense, Kimmel decided he could be happy for his friend in that moment.
