Celebrities fight it out online
by: Jorian L. Seay and Mariah Craddick

Grab your popcorn and soda! The celebs are at it again. Our beloved stars are often found on Twitter filling in followers on their busy lives and menial happenings. The social media site can serve as a great publicity platform for some celebs; for others, not so much. What happens when the rich and famous take to the Web to vent? The claws come out. Here is a compilation of our favorite tweet beefs.

Erykah Badu vs Wayne Coyne

THE LEAKED VIDEO for the Badu/Flaming Lips collab “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” sent the Web into a flurry with images of Badu (and her sister Nayrock as a body double) nude and covered in glitter and various fluids including what appeared to be blood. Badu said it was released without her approval and confronted the front man.


BADU SAID: @waynecoyne … you should send at least a ROUGH version of the video u PLAN to release b4 u manipulate or compromise the artist’s brand by desperately releasing a poor excuse for shock and nudity. …You can KISS MY Glittery ASS.”

COYNE’S RESPONSE: “Hey @Fatbellybella I kissed it!!! Thanks!@!!!!!”

THESE COMEDIANS have flexed their skills by engaging in an online battle of the dozens in 140 (or less) characters at a time, and we couldn’t help but look and laugh.

EPPS SAID: “Kevin hart is the same size as his career!! SHORT LOL”
HART’S RESPONSE: “Yo @therealmikeepps is really marlon [wayans] from the movie white chicks!!!


The Braxtons vs. Jill

JILLY FROM PHILLY tweeted a shout-out to siblings gospel duo Mary Mary for their WE tv reality show, calling it “real representation.” Singing sisters Tamar and Towanda Braxton, who also have a WE tv reality show, took Scott’s tweet as shade to their show.

TAMAR SAID: “RT@missjillscott: Please watch Mary Mary on WE. Finally a real representation. Yay!!!!! [Of freaking what? *gets in her feelings*:]

TOWANDA’S RESPONSE: “…Finally realizing how folk hate on [Braxton Family Values]… Get a life!”

JILL’S RESPONSE: “…Just because I love oranges doesn’t mean I HATE apples.”


Brian McKnight vs. Chris Brown

BROWN ENGAGED in a series of passive-aggressive “tweefs” with R&B singer Brian McKnight. Why? Because McKnight tweeted to express his disgust with a lack of support for his music, referencing Brown’s infamous ’09 altercation wiht Rihanna.

McKNIGHT SAID: “Since everyone’s so opinionated I’m taking suggestions on what I should do next; I’m thinking rent a lambo and beat the shit outta my girl…”

BROWN’S RESPONSE: “…When peoples careers get to the ‘nobody cares’ stage they use my name for publicity! Lol”
