handler cannon Chelsea Handler vs. Nick Cannon: The Twitter fight gets trashyRemember when celebrities had to speak to the press if they wanted to start a feud? Not anymore, thanks to Twitter. The latest? Late-night comedienne Chelsea Handler took a jab at Nick Cannon on her Twitter feed — because making fun of celebrities is what she does — and he took it very, very personally.

“I just heard nick cannon is starting a comedy tour. Who’s going to do the comedy?” Handler wrote.

And then stuff hit the fan.

“Everyone knows @ChelseaHandler had sex with the head of E! for her show. So when it’s canceled does he get residual p***y for the reruns?” Cannon retaliated. “@ChelseaHandler looks like she got hit in the face with a bag of hot nickels. Just talked to @50Cent he said he made @ChelseaHandler get G-Unit tattooed on her balls!”

]]> And on it went. Later, Cannon called out Handler, Howard Stern, and
Eminem
. “Why do these angry ugly whitetrash folks want beef with me?” he
asked.

Just hours earlier, Cannon had tweeted to Handler, “I actaully used to
have respect for you as a comic. But for one artist to diss another in
the same art form. #Tasteless.”

We think he should’ve followed his own advice.
