Twitter Beef: Nick Cannon Vs. Chelsea Handler
Although Nick Cannon is a comedian, he clearly can’t take a joke. On Thursday, E! talk show host Chelsea Handler tweeted, “I just heard nick cannon [sic] is starting a comedy tour. Who’s going to do the comedy?”
In response, while prepping for a show here in NYC at the Gotham Comedy Club, Mr. Mariah Carey tweeted, “Wow @chelseahandler I actaully [sic] used to have respect for you as a comic. But for one artist to diss another in the same art form. #Tasteless. Soon as I get off stage tonight, I’m going in on @chelseahandler I’m about to be relentless! OFF WITH HER HEAD but right now I got to focus.”
Wait, is there some unwritten rule that says comedians can’t crack jokes on other comedians? Anyway, quick-witted Handler then tweeted, “@nickcannon pls drink this before you tweet me again,” referring to a picture of a grape soda that accompanied her tweet.
Cannon probably needed something a little stronger than a grape soda to calm him down judging by how he responded when he tweeted, “Everyone knows @Chelseahandler had sex with the head of E! for her show [Handler once dated the head of the E! network]. So when its canceled does he get residual p***y for the reruns?”
He also went in on Chelsea’s appearance, tweeting that the funny lady looked like she got “hit in the face with a hot bag nickels.” And of her “date” with 50 Cent a few weeks back at a New Orleans bar, Cannon tweeted that the duo got together to share “testosterone tips.”
Cannon concluded his Twitter rant by taking one last shot at Chelsea and adding Howard Stern and Eminem into the mix, both of who’ve had words for the America’s Got Talent host in the past. He said, “Why do all these angry ugly whitetrash [sic] folks want beef with me? What I do? I’m a harmless corny dude!” Not to mention emotional; I wonder if Mariah’s pregnancy hormones have rubbed off on dude? Maybe he could use the testosterone tips.
