"Sounds great — let me know when you get some Christian values and I'll be there!" Kimmel tweeted.

The embattled Senate candidate had earlier challenged the late-night host on Twitter. "If you want to mock our Christian values, come down here to Alabama and do it man to man," Moore tweeted at Kimmel.

The Alabama Republican's message came after comedian Tony Barbieri, who has appeared on Kimmel’s show, disrupted an event on Wednesday where Moore was speaking.

Several women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct, with multiple women alleging he pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

Moore has denied the allegations, calling them a conspiracy by establishment Republicans and the media to steal the election from Alabama voters.

While discussing the allegations on Wednesday, Moore told the crowd that he believes he angered certain people while serving as district attorney several decades ago, which has created a conspiracy against him.

A protester interrupted Moore, asking, “The entire town? Are all the girls lying?” AL.com reported.

Barbieri, who has appeared at previous political events as the character Jake Byrd for "Jimmy Kimmel Live," then stood up and told the crowd that Moore is a “man’s man,” asking, “Does that look like the face of a molester?”

Barbieri was later asked to leave the event.
