12 of the Most Epic Celebrity Twitter Feuds Ever
by Megan Wells
There’s no fight quite like a celebrity Twitter battle. Join us as we look back on the most epic feuds to hit social media.
Khloe Kardashian vs. Amber Rose
Nearly a year ago, Amber Rose decided to speak out on the then-rumored relationship between Tyga and Kylie Jenner. In her opinion “Kylie’s a baby. She needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock and relax. It’s ridiculous. Tyga should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel, for sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby that he left for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.”
Khloe Kardashian had Kylie’s back, “‘I was a stripper since I was 15 years old,’ Amber Rose told Foxx. Please don’t worry about my sister who has a career and her s— together at ONLY 17. People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
Kim Kardashian vs. Taylor Swift
The beef most recent in our minds is surely the incident between Swift and Kardashian. Kardashian’s beau Kanye West released a new song titled ‘Famous’, which featured misogynistic lyrics directed at Swift. West claims he got approval from Swift before debuting the song, which Swift denied, “Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination,” she also said in the statement.
Kardashian secretly recording Swift’s approval for the song lyrics and publicly called Tay out for lying, which started the infamous hashtag #KimExposedTaylorParty.
Taylor Swift vs. Nicki Minaj
Swift also has a rocky past with rapper Nicki Minaj. Minaj tweeted her disdain toward MTV’s award selections, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year”. Taylor got defensive, “I’ve done nothing but love & support you,” she wrote to Minaj. “It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.”
Minaj responded, “Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn’t say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u shouldn’t speak on this. @taylorswift13”.
Shaunie O’Neal vs. Ayesha Curry
Even if you’re not a basketball fan, chances are you know Steph Curry.
When Curry’s Golden State Warriors experienced difficulty locking up the championship, Ayesha Curry wasn’t happy. She took to Twitter claiming the NBA is ‘absolutely rigged’.
Shaunie O’Neal, ex-wife of legendary Shaq, didn’t like Ayesha’s response, “I don’t know Ayesha Curry. I feel like that job that her husband has supports a whole lot of people, including her family, his family. Your husband goes to do a job, and to say his job is rigged is sacrificing a whole lot of folks and their livelihood.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson vs. B.o.B
B.o.B messed with the science gods when he insisted the world is actually flat, “No matter how high in elevation you are… the horizon is always eye level […] I didn’t wanna believe it either.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson couldn’t let this one slip, “Earth’s curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that.”
Drake vs. Meek Mill
As an artist, being called out for lack of ability is cringe-worthy. That’s what happened when Meek Mill tweeted “Stop comparing drake to me too…. He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out!”
Drake, bothered by the comments, elevated the feud by releasing ‘diss tracks’ “Charged Up” and “Back to Back”, which hurled insults at Meek’s social media fight with lyrics like “trigger fingers turned to Twitter fingers.” Drake has also been known to perform these songs with backdrops of anti-Meek memes at his shows.
Deadmau5 vs. Skrillex, Diplo and Justin Bieber
DeadMau5 wrote, “made the mistake of listening to this jack u shit with bieber assuming they at least did something cool… nope. what the f*** is this s***?” Ouch.
Amanda Bynes vs. Rihanna
In 2013, Amanda Bynes utilized Twitter to attack Rihanna, “No one wants to be your lover so you call everyone and their mother that I almost named my new dog Rihanna,” And even worse, “Chris brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough.” Yikes. Rihanna sort of took the high road, and only responded with a tweet that said “Ya see what happens when they cancel the Intervention?”
Charlie Sheen vs. Rihanna
Rihanna happened to be at the same restaurant as Sheen during his fiancee’s birthday celebration in 2014. Sheen invited Rihanna to his table, and she declined. Sheen tweeted, “Nice impression you left behind, Bday or not. Sorry we’re not KOOL enough to warrant a blessing from the Princess. (Or in this case the Village idiot.)”.
Selena Gomez vs. Demi Lovato
One-time BFFs Gomez and Lovato had a very public fallout. Demi unfollowed Selena on Twitter, which then escalated when she tweeted a meme saying, “Swimming away from your bull****,” with the caption “BYE.” Demi did not try to hide the reasoning behind the tweet either. She is on record saying that they’d grown apart because “people change.”
Chelsea Handler vs. Nick Cannon
Chelsea Handler tweeted, “I heard Nick Cannon is starting a comedy tour. Who’s going to do the comedy?” and got nasty feedback. Cannon fired back, “Everybody knows @Chelseahandler had sex with the head of E! for her show. So when it’s canceled, does he get residual p**** for the reruns?” Low blow, Cannon (no pun intended).
Lindsay Lohan vs. Dr. Phil
In 2009 Dr. Phil stated he was worried about Lohan and “she’d lose a limb ” before hitting rock bottom. In 2012, Lohan’s mother made an appearance on Dr. Phil which cast LiLo’s mom in a not-so-flattering light. Lindsay took to Twitter to defend herself and mother. “@DrPhil You should be ashamed of yourself. What kind of man takes advantage of a women @her most vulnerable state? YOU are the fraud.”
