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.
