He responded by saying, ‘No, no, he’s an a**hole. Why would I ever do that?’
Additionally, he continued, ‘He’s a terrible human being. He’s a demonstrably bad man.’
Damon then went ahead to callback at Kimmel when he caught sight of him a few behind him on the red carpet.
He yelled, ‘Hey! I’d love to take a picture with you but we ran out of time!’
For the unversed, Damon was mocking Kimmel’s running joke where he apologizes to the 52-year-old actor for running out of time at the end of the episode.

Why are Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel in a ‘feud’?
Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon have been pretending to hate each other since 2006 when the former launched a running gag about Damon.
Kimmel began apologizing to the 52-year-old actor for running out of time at the end of each episode of his late-night show called Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Damon on the other hand featured in a spoof video with Kimmel’s girlfriend at the time, Sarah Silverman in 2008. The music video was called I’m F***ing Matt Damon.
