Billy Eichner Accuses Ross Mathews of Ripping Off His Show

Billy Eichner has accused fellow comedian Ross Mathews of stealing his concept for Billy On the Street for a Capitol One commercial.

The commercial, which you can watch below, has Ross quizzing two random people on the street in a game show setting.

“Yet another Billy on the Street ripoff. I usually ignore but this one is SHAMELESS and PATHETIC. (And not funny). Hey @CapitalOne & @helloross – don’t steal from my f–king show. This is stolen intellectual property. F–K YOU. #GoodbyeRoss,” Billy tweeted.

“Are you serious? I’ve been doing man on the street interviews since 2001. I’ve never even seen your stuff. Bless your heart,” Ross responded.
