We’ve got some interesting updates for you, the loyal Best Week Ever reader, regarding the digital catfight between John Mayer and Rainn Wilson. As you’ll recall, sexual napalm enthusiast John Mayer unleashed an epic tirade on Rainn Wilson on Tumblr last night, one in which Mayer accused Wilson of stealing one of his buddy’s jokes. Well, as you can see above, word quickly made its way to Wilson about the accusations, and he apologized to his 1,981,623 followers — he managed to pick up 281 followers since last night! — on Twitter for the mistake. However, Wilson has yet to update his original post, and commenters on his site have taken him to task for that.
What happened with Mayer, though, is slightly more interesting.
After blasting Wilson on his Tumblr site, Mayer apparently regretted his decision to take this fight public; he has since deleted his original “Show Your Notes” post from his site. However, in a bit of digital negligence on his behalf, the joke thievery accusations still remain live at his official blog on JohnMayer.com. Just in case he has a change of heart and decides to delete that, too, here’s a screencap of what he wrote (for posterity’s sake, natch).
So, beef squashed, we suppose? OR IS IT?!?
