Before Shatner read the tweets Conan declared, “All real, we did not make these up.”

Shatner then went on to read, in a poetry style, a series of tweets including “Anyone know where I can get some good weed” and “"What’s the deal with the taxi drivers not speaking English, is there a law against it?"

Johnston's rep denied the authenticity of the messages though, releasing the following statement, "My client, Levi Johnston, is being impersonated on your media (Twitter) and this is leading to libel and slanderous statements being attributed to him. ... We want you to put an immediate end to this illegal activity. ... You are being used as a medium to promote this illegality and we want immediate action. ... You are now on notice and must take steps to put an end to what is clearly against the law and against your policy. ... We want to know what steps you will be taking to correct what is clearly a problem which is escalating."


In an exclusive interview with Johnston’s rep says, “"Levi has never ever possessed a Twitter account. He feels violated. He feels awful, but that's the nature of the beast. You've got to expect this stuff and take the good with the bad. He doesn't mind some of it but he has a real problem with someone being an outright liar.

“I can't believe these people at the Tonight Show reporting this stuff without verifying their sources. They even had some actor to recite that crap on TV. They don't understand the legality of it. I'm going to see what they say on the show tonight and then we're going to decide what to do about it."
