Tina Fey. Not only is she a Bossypants, but the Philadelphia-born comedian, writer, and producer is also a hater -- according to fellow Philadelphian and NBC co-worker Questlove.

The afro-picked drummer went on Bravo's new late night show, Watch What Happens: Live, and called Fey out for not showing his band any brotherly love.

"Can I just say something?" Questo asked host Andy Cohen. "Tina Fey, you are never nice to the Roots! We're from Philadelphia, be nice to the Roots. Fellow Philadelphians, we bond with each other and it's been hard to bond with her."

Where does Quest's displeasure stem from? Perhaps a 30 Rock break room squabble over refrigerator privileges or not getting an invite to Fey's New Year's Eve party. Who knows?

Whatever the case, the seemingly one-sided Questlove v. Fey feud spilled onto Twitter earlier this morning when Questo's 1.8 million followers woke up to the following.

We wonder if Jimmy Fallon will mediate the situation when his former Weekend Update BFF visits Late Night this Tuesday.
