Donald Trump isn't participating in this year's Emmy Awards ceremony, but he sure has something to say about host, Seth Meyers. The big-mouthed reality star weighed in on Twitter with his thoughts on the Late Night personality hosting this year's show.

Clearly, there's no love lost between the two celebrities.

The feud dates back to the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner when Meyers hosted the event. The former Saturday Night Live star made a joke about Trump's possible run for president.

He quipped, "Donald Trump has been saying that he will run for president as a Republican. Which is surprising, because I just assumed he was running as a joke."

Trump, who attended the event, wasn't too pleased to be the butt of Meyers' jokes. He sat stone-faced in the audience.

After the dinner, the New York Daily News spoke to the real estate mogul's spokesperson who responded with a statement, "Seth Meyers is a third-rate talent who performed very poorly at the Washington Correspondents' Dinner. He had marbles in his mouth and couldn't get the words out."

One person who does have faith in Meyers is the 2013 Emmy Awards host, Neil Patrick Harris. He told the New York periodical, "He's super funny and charming and handsome and he should be amazing. If he can play the White House Correspondents' Dinner, he'll be fine with the Real Housewives of Atlanta."

Now, let's hope Meyers makes a Trump joke tonight. It will only add fuel to the Twitter fire.
