Kieran Culkin playfully took a jab at Pedro Pascal during the Golden Globes earlier this month, so the Last of Us star returned the favor at the 75th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

Prior to presenting the award for best supporting actor in a drama series, Pascal, 48, told the audience that wanted to take a moment to “make this about me.”

Pascal, who was nominated Monday for outstanding lead actor in a drama series for his role as Joel in HBO's The Last of Us, then brought up his injured shoulder — and jokingly suggested Culkin, 41, was behind it.

“I think tonight is a perfect time to tell everyone that Kieran Culkin beat the s--- out of me,” Pascal said as the camera panned over to the Succession star.

That same evening, Pascal told reporters that he "fell” and injured himself, but did not elaborate on the injury any further. “Be careful,” he added. “It can happen to anybody.”

Pascal poked fun at his injury the day after the Golden Globes, painting the word “OUCHY” across his nails and showing them off on his Instagram Story.
