Meek Mill and Drake. Amber Rose and Khloe Kardashian. Amber Rose, again, and Kanye West. Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj. Azealia Banks and everyone. Twitter feuds are the fodder of the pop culture world, especially when A-list celebrities are involved. Regardless of whether or not you follow any of these or other celebrities, you no doubt have heard about their social media beef.
But you clearly don’t have to be a celebrity to get into a back-and-forth spat with a total stranger or someone you know on Twitter or other forms of social media. Now, clapping back is one thing, but you don’t have to tumble down the Twitter feud rabbit hole, no matter what foolishness comes your way. This is especially true when you keep these very real-life consequences in mind. Here are but a few reasons you should avoid feuding (or posting inappropriate, offensive content, etc.) on Twitter if you can help it. (And trust us, you can).
We all love to believe that once we reach a certain age, we rise above all of the pettiness but that didn’t seem to be the case last week with Anita Baker and fellow soul singer Cheryl Lynn. Now, it seems that the whole altercation may have been a farce.
The two went back and forth on Twitter after Cheryl said that Miss Baker blocked her on the social networking site.
Well, today, Cheryl Lynne’s manager, Thurlene Johnson reached out to Hello Beautiful, to say that the tweets did not come from a verified account. In fact, Johnson said that Lynn doesn’t even have an account.
“Cheryl Lynn does not have a Twitter or Facebook account. The individual sending the communications is an imposter pretending to be Cheryl Lynn. Twitter has been made aware of this situation several time over the last two years. Careful scrutiny of the tweets reveals it is not a verified account.”
We’re certainly hoping this is true. It did none of us any good to see these ladies behaving like this.
‘I’m Baffled As To Who You Are & What You Actually Do:’ Tichina Arnold Slams French Montana Over Instagram Photo
The Internet can be a pretty hilarious place and most of us have been guilty, at some point or another, of reposting funny photos. But rapper French Montana got a little more than he bargained for after posting a photo of actress Tichina Arnold to his Instagram page.
Of course, no one likes to be the butt of a joke. So when Tichina received word of French’s Instagram post nearly two weeks later, she took to her own Instagram page with a rather snarky (and lengthy) response. Her post reads:
“Man oh man. Mr. Montana, I’ve perused (read through with thoroughness and care) your #instagram profile description, pictures & posts… but despite my determined effort, I STILL don’t have a CLUE to one very simple question… ‘Who ARE you?’
I mean other than reading that you’ve dated a Kardashian, and you seem to enjoy taking extraneous pictures with LEGITIMATE celebrities, I’m baffled (perplexed, confused) as to WHO you are & WHAT you actually DO? How do you contribute to society? What do you do to HELP those in need? What philanthropic works have you done? Are you on the board of any charitable organizations? Do you posses your own charitable organization? Do you own your name? How many of your followers are actually REAL followers and not computer generated? Oh.. And one other thing, if you are gonna post or repost things about other people (such as myself). FYI: Maybe you should put more effort into aligning yourself with people who can ASSIST you with building your brand for longevity, only THEN will you be prepared to (as your boy Martin would so clearly put it) “Stomp with the big dogs”.
But either way, I’m pleased to know you are a true fan of the ‘Martin’ show despite what criticisms you have. Your continued support is proof that for over 30 years, I have CONTRIBUTED something of VALUE on television to many people (including yourself) and many generations and hopefully more to come. Hit me up and maybe I can hook you into individuals who have “Serious Inquiries” regarding hiring you. I just need to know what exactly it is that you are SELLING, because unfortunately, I STILL don’t know. Keep your head up & GOD Bless! TICHINA …
Oh! One more thing, if you know of anyone who has an auto immune disease such as #Lupus, go check out my 501c3 organization at www.wewinfoundation.org – Unfortunately thousands of women (and men) battle with this constant life threatening #autoimmune #disease everyday. It would be AMAZING if you made a donation instead of losing 40k in one on one basketball bets with your cohorts. Your positive & monetary support would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for your time.”
LOL! So far, there has been no response from French.
Do you think Tichina should’ve even acknowledged French’s jab?

Stans, fans and trolls can get extremely out of hand when it comes to celebrities on social media. So it’s not a complete surprise that some celebrities are naturally in defense mode. But one fan who attempted to offer some encouraging words to Keyshia Cole regarding her family and her marriage received a response that she probably wasn’t expecting.
“@KeyshiaCole Remember that you stood before God,” the fan tweeted “I know everyone talking about ‘She hurt, that album is going to be hot.’ This is your life. Fight.”
Seemingly taking offense to the fan’s words, Keyshia responded:
“Don’t get blocked.”
Noticing her aggravation, the fan quickly offered an apology to the “Enough of No Love” singer.
“I apologize. I didn’t mean to offend you or your family.”
“Again, I apologize.”
Keyshia eventually accepted the fan’s apology and explained that she was speaking on something that she had no knowledge of.
“It’s all G,” she replied. “You just have no idea what you’re speaking on, love.”
We get it, Keyshia. It has to be pretty annoying for celebrities to have complete strangers commenting on your personal business day in and day out. But honestly, the fan seemed to have good intentions.
Yesterday we told you that Tamar Braxton made it very clear that she’s not really interested in making amends with R&B rival K.Michelle, despite the fact that K extended an olive branch last week when she informed fans that she would be purchasing Tamar’s album.
“I don’t know who that is. I didn’t see that.I don’t know. I don’t follow anyone on Twitter and then the person has been blocked from my Twitter for two years so I don’t know how they figured I keep talking about them – I don’t want to talk about this,” Tamar said when asked about K’s peace offering.
While out promoting her new album Love & War and Season 2 of Tamar and Vince, the “Hot Sugar” singer was asked about her feud with K.Michelle again. She continued to shut down K’s efforts to make amends, but offered a bit more insight as to why she’s not interested in making nice with the outspoken Love & Hip Hop star.
“I really don’t talk about the people who bully me and stuff. If you do one good gesture that doesn’t make up for you calling me a muppet. It doesn’t make up for you telling everybody that a lip sync,” Tamar said during an interview with the Breakfast Club.
The new mom went on to say that due to the success of her new album, she and K are no longer on the same level.
“But I don’t even want to talk about her because on my third day, I sold over one-hundred thousand copies so we’re not even in the same conversations in life so why are we doing this?”
When asked if she returned the gesture and purchased K’s album, she humorously responded:
“Well you know, God is good. I bought mine.”
Tamar’s hubby Vince also confidently boasted that The Real will be returning for a second season.
“‘The Real’ is definitely coming back. That’s official. The ratings were so incredible and the girls had such great chemistry. It was something that we needed. It’s just good people on the show. It’s just fun.”
As for chatter that she’s become a bigger star than her Grammy Award-winning sister Toni, Tamar says this simply isn’t true.
“She’s super fine. I think it’s different. For her generation, she still is Toni Braxton. It’s just like a new generation. I’m not even on her level to even be speaking about that. She’s an icon. I have one record. Toni has catalogs, I have songs,” Tamar said.

While you were minding your business, getting ready to step out for the weekend, David Otunga (known as “Punk” to those who used to watch I Love New York) and rapper Wale were having something of a beef on Twitter. Random already right? Those are two names you probably wouldn’t think to put in the same sentence: Wale and David Otunga. Anwyho, it all started when Otunga, who must have just found out about the “Bad” remix featuring Rihanna a tad bit late, took to Twitter to say that homegirl overshadowed Mr. Folarin on his own song.
As you can see, Otunga included the rapper’s Twitter handle so that he would see the comment. Of course, Wale, who has never been one to mince words, was ready to respond to the out-0f-the-blue diss with some observations of his own about Otunga’s own career and how it compares to his fiancée’s, Jennifer Hudson. Excuse the incessant use of the N-word in the process:
From there Wale was basically done with Otunga, but the wrestler continued to talk to his own followers about the rapper, eventually bragging about his Harvard Law degree and Wale’s lack thereof.
Not really sure why Otunga decided to up and throw shade at Wale. Possibly because he knew that he could get a reaction out of the fiery little guy. And if we’ve learned anything from Raz-B, the thirst for publicity is real. But still, he’s got his own stuff to be worried about rather than trying to alert people that he thinks they’ve been overshadowed on their own tracks. When are you getting married to our Jennifer, sir!? Let’s worry about that first and foremost…
Celebrities love to throw shade on Twitter, but nothing is more entertaining than when another celeb throws it right back at them. Check out the best celebrity Twitter beefs of 2012.
Chrissy Teigen v. Team Breezy
Team Breezy is agro. All Chrissy said during the Billboard Music Awards this year was that Chris Brown’s performance wasn’t great. Is that really enough reason to threaten to kill a chick? They got so out of line that Breezy had to come in and calm things down. Some people are too crazy to handle 140 characters.
We all know that social networking can cause plenty of heated arguments. From disses to rumors and everything in between, it’s not uncommon for someone, even a celebrity, to quit a social networking site, such as Twitter when things get a little too heated — or they forget 18.75 million people are watching their every tweet. Here are 15 celebrities who temporarily or permanently quit Twitter.
After getting into a heated match with Jenny Johnson about Rihanna a couple of weeks ago, Chris Brown temporarily deleted his Twitter account. Unsurprisingly, he was reactivated and reusing his account the very next day. This isn’t the first or the last time Chris will quit Twitter.
Gone are the days when celebrity managers and publicists tweeted on behalf of their clients. Now, many celebrities have taken control of their Twitter accounts and pure drama has ensued. Some stars have been successful in keeping their Twitter beef to a minimum, while others seem to be way too sensitive to do the same. These fifteen celebrities are the type to interpret an innocent tweet as insulting; transfer their real-life drama to Twitter or from Twitter; and take tweet-beef way, way too seriously.
