There have been celebrity feuds since there were movies, TV shows, radio broadcasts etc., but before the rise of social media these feuds were published through comments made in magazines and newspapers. Now, with the popularity of Twitter, millions of followers can watch their favorite celebrities duke it out in real-time!
This a top 10 list of scandalous Celebrity Twitter Feuds. Some of these celebrities never seem to surprise us with their big mouths:
1. Joan Rivers vs. Lindsay Lohan
Winner: Joan Rivers
Former actress and the jailbird and naughty Lindsay Lohan is consistent water cooler fodder because of her hard-partying ways, but she did not react well to Joan Rivers’ barbs as she faced the judge for violating the probation terms of her 2007 drug and alcohol case.
After Rivers tweeted one-liners like, “Lindsay Lohan said she would not mind being under oath because she thought Oath was a Norwegian ski instructor,” Lohan defended herself by tweeting, “Joan Rivers and her ‘stargument’ make me believe that she and Michael Lohan are a match made in heaven.” Geez. With all that fake tanning, you’d think LaLohan would have thicker skin. Hit the road Lindsay! You lose this one.
2. Leah Remini vs Sharon Osbourne
Winner: Sharon Osbourne
After Remini was fired from The Talk, she blamed one person and that was Sharon Osbourne. “Sharon thought me and Holly were ‘ghetto’” she tweeted. “We were not funny, awkward and didn’t know ourselves. She has the power that was given to her.”
Osbourne responded, “In response to Leah Remini’s continuous comments that I had her fired from “The Talk, let me just go on the record to say I had absolutely nothing to do with her departure from the show and have no idea why she continues to take to Twitter to spread this false gossip.”
Remini wrote later, “I will not respond to Sharon BUT only to say this, IF she wanted to clear it up she has my number & has had ALL this time and didn’t use it not even to say she was sorry. so to Sharon I say… Well done Sharon, you won. I will move on now as you suggested. And so should u. Be at Peace.”
Sharon Osbourne won the catfight since she was the one who kept her job. Someone teach them to write grammatically!
3. Fox News’ Andy Levy vs. Chris Brown
Winner: Andy Levy
R&B singer Chris Brown, well known for his sensitive and self-aware demeanor, recently tweeted, “No more planking for me unless it’s on a sexy lady! Lol,” obviously referring to the Internet meme that compels idiots to lie flat on a surface while somebody snaps a photo. Fortunately, the irony – and the opportunity for wordplay – of Brown’s tweet was not lost. In perhaps the most genius retweet ever, Andy Levy, host of Fox News’ “Red Eye,” added, “You spelled ‘punching’ wrong.” The problem is, nobody puts Crybaby Chris in a corner. Brown immediately called Levy out for conducting himself in a manner not even suited for children, to which Levy eventually digressed.
4. George Lopez vs. Kirstie Alley
Winner: Kirstie Alley
Recently canceled talk-show host George Lopez tweeted jokes, the butt of which was Kirstie Alley, after an end-of-March performance by the former Fat Actress on “Dancing with the Stars.” Lopez referred to Alley as a little piggy, tweeting that before the show “she went to the market and then she had roast beef.” Alley wasn’t amused. After her fans demanded an apology from Lopez, Alley huffed and puffed and blew his glass house down when she cleverly compared Lopez, a self-professed alcoholic, to a “big bad, drunk woolf” who meets his demise by falling “in a boiling pot of vodka.”
What do you think about the feud? Does it make you love Alley more for standing up for herself? Or do you think her replies to Lopez were just as insensitive? Sound off in the comments below.
George Lopez later made an announcement via Twitter saying that he was sorry for joking about the size of Dancing with the Stars contestant Kirstie Alley. “I misjudged the joke,” the comedian said in a Tweet.
5. Samantha Ronson vs. Lindsay Lohan
Winner: Samantha Ronson
Another fight another loss for Lindsay.
During their rocky relationship in 2009, not only did DJ Samantha Ronson and Lindsay Lohan have public blowouts, but Lindsay also took out her frustrations on her lover to her Twitter fanbase: “You JUST told me that your friends are worth more than I am to your family.” On another occasion, Lohan proclaimed that Ronson had been cheating on her, tweeting: “I was right all along. Cheat.”
