According to The Associated Press, the pair's social media spat began Sunday when Trump slammed Fallon's recent comments about the then-presidential candidate's appearance on a September 2016 episode of his show. In an article published last week, Fallon told the Hollywood Reporter that he regretted his lighthearted treatment of Trump on the show.

"I made a mistake," Fallon said. "I'm sorry if I made anyone mad. And, looking back, I would do it differently."

Trump, apparently referring to Fallon's remarks, took to Twitter to respond.

".@jimmyfallon is now whimpering to all that he did the famous 'hair show' with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have 'humanized' me-he is taking heat," Trump tweeted Sunday evening. "He called & said 'monster ratings.' Be a man Jimmy!"
