Jimmy Fallon just committed to donating money to refugees after Donald Trump told the "Tonight Show" host to "be a man."

On Sunday, Trump criticized Fallon for expressing regret for "humanizing" him during his notorious September 2016 interview when he stroked the then-candidate's hair.

Trump said that Fallon called him after the show and said it received"monster ratings." He then told Fallon to "be a man" and stop "whimpering."

"@jimmyfallon is now whimpering to all that he did the famous 'hair show' with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have 'humanized' me-he is taking heat. He called & said 'monster ratings.' Be a man Jimmy."

In response to Trump's tweet, Fallon said that he will be making a donation in Trump's name to RAICES, a Texas-based charity Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES).

"In honor of the President's tweet I'll be making a donation to RAICES in his name," Fallon said.

It's not the first "rage donation," either. Model Chrissy Teigen spurred $1 million in donations to the American Civil Liberties Union after she wrote four checks valued at $72,000 a piece to the nonprofit on Trump's birthday

"You didn't think your $7.20 would be much," she tweeted. " Some of you gave $72 you barely had. In just two days, you guys donated over $1,000,000 to the @ACLU. Over 20,000 of you donated. You. Did. That. I am so grateful, so happy, so humbled and hopeful to live amongst you wonderful beings."
