    "I can't believe you become who you are" is what he said. Which is understandable. A nerdy kid living in an poor-artist housing becoming a big and cool action movie star.

    I'm a gamer, I've played tabletop games before, and I am completely not offended at all by what Jimmy said. It was pretty funny and he wasn't really bashing. Also, a lot of the stereotypes are true.

    I'm not condoning mistreatment of nerds, I'm just saying sometimes light-hearted jokes, especially when consent is implied, are not that big of a deal.

    He may have had a friendly tone while he was saying it but it had an undertone that was not what I would call nice.

    I thought it was a bit horrible when Fallon engaged him saying that he had made a WoW character. Vin Diesel is legitimately interested and goes into asking "What class?" and such. Fallon responds with "I don't remember." and really sounds like he shouldn't be expected to remember something so meaningless.

    It's possible it may have been a bit where he was trying to be disrespectful and bully Vin Diesel but it's definitely there.

    Did you even watch the clip? He doesn't say, "I don't remember." He says, "What was he?" trying to remember what it was. Then he goes on to answer it to the best of his ability by describing what he remembers about the character. He doesn't attempt to blow off the question or anything.

    I'm starting to wonder if this is some sort of elaborate trolling.

    Fallon: "So youre Vin Diesel. Now you're Mr. Cool, but you used to be into D&D. Exactly where did that switch flip?"

    The audience and Fallon laughs each time he mentions something nerdy as if it's unbelievable and/or funny.

    Fallon: "I can't believe you became who you are."

    Fallon is clearly asking the questions to get a laugh out of people based on the perception that "D&D and WoW are for losers" and Vin Diesel isn't.

    So, you can all go suck the metaphorical moose wang.
