Conan O'Brien Compares NBC to Nazis

Well, he’s still not over it. Conan O'Brien recently told Fortune magazine:

“I made a decision and that decision very quickly led to me walking away from the crown jewel of old broadcasting and, in addition to that, being legally prohibited from going on television.

I’m not 100% sure what he means anymore, but he sounds angry. NBC is like the ex Conan will never get over, and TBS is the new girlfriend that just isn’t the same, no matter how hard they try.

"Ten years ago, if my situation with NBC had unfolded, none of this would have happened. Yeah, maybe I was 10 years too late to do The Tonight Show that I wanted to do. But I was just in the nick of time. Do you know what I mean?"

He then did to NBC what people only do when they truly loathe something to the very core. He compared them to Nazis.

"You know that scene in the first Indiana Jones movie where he gets thrown through the truck windshield by a Nazi? I was thrown through the windshield of broadcasting."

Conan also revealed that NBC didn’t care for his joining Twitter. He told Fortune, “I would be thrilled if they shut down my Twitter account. I'd love it if that got out. You think PR's been bad up till now? Wait till you take away my Twitter account.”

Conan, you’re starting to scare me. What happened to the fun-loving, easygoing guy who would do song parodies about the situation? Now you’re guarding your Twitter account like a homeless dog that just found a half-eaten biscuit in the garbage. Team Coco is falling apart.
