It was comedian vs comedian, or at least comedian vs. Nick Cannon, after Chelsea Handler ripped on Nick Cannon’s comedy tour via Twitter last night. “I just heard nick cannon is starting a comedy tour. Who’s going to do the comedy?”, Handler tweeted, apparently forgetting that everyone and their mother has a Twitter, including Mariah Carey’s better half. Cannon quickly replied to Chelsea that, “I actaully used to have respect for you as a comic. But for one artist to diss another in the same art form. #Tasteless”. Hard to believe, but that nasty little exchange is down-right classy compared to what comes next. Chelsea proceeded to whip out the coup de grace of poorly thought out Twitter replies, by tweeting a picture of a grape soda at Nick, which, real talk, is the Twitter version of invading Poland, escalation-wise. Cannon preceded showed of his comic stylings by riffing on Chelsea hard-core, some of his choicest tweets including:
- Just talked to @50cent He said he made @chelseahandler get G-Unit tattooed on her balls!
- @Chelseahandler @Howardstern @Eminem Why do all these angry ugly whitetrash folks want beef with me? What I do? I’m a harmless corny dude!
- @50cent wasn’t hitting @chelseahandler they was just sharing testosterone tips
And our personal favorite:
- @chelseahandler Looks like she got hit in the face with a hot bag nickels!
Oh and Snap! Man, getting hit with a bag of nickels would hurt already, right? But then if they were hot? And it was your face? Nick gets points for creativity if nothing else. Both Handler and Cannon are now dealing with each other’s enraged fans, and probably will be for weeks. The thing is, neither Chelsea nor Nick is a stranger to public brawls, as Perez Hilton and Eminem (and probably dozens of other people) can attest. So you think they would know better, right? Ah, forget it, guys; it’s Twitter Town.
