For the most part, celebrities on Twitter are terrible at handling criticism - especially if it comes from other celebrities. Any perceived shade that comes their way is liable to start earth shattering, ocean boiling, beef. While a lot of actors and musicians try to stay busy, some celebs spend all of their online time embroiled in twitter feuds. You wouldn’t be wrong if you thought that they were using the celebrity twitter fights as a means of getting free publicity. Although some Twitter fights seem like they would have happened regardless of the medium, and it’s probably better that it happened in 140 characters on the Internet instead of at a club in person. That being said, some of the online beefs have spilled over IRL, where things tend to get physical. These celebrity Twitter beefs are like a car crash - you can’t look away.As you’ll soon find out, some of the celebrities that are catalogued on this list are seasoned pros at the art of the Twitter fight. They can duck and run, or lash out like a prizefighter – all in a string of 140 character posts. Each celebrity has their own style when it comes to Twitter beef. If you’re Kanye, you don’t even let your opponent get a word in edge wise, and if you’re Donald Trump you make the craziest statement you can think of and let your opponent do the rest. Take a look at the most entertaining celebrity twitter feuds and find out which style you prefer.
Russell Brand Gets Ponderous About Donald Trump
.@realDonaldTrump are you drunk when you write these tweets? Or does that foam you spray on your bald head make you high?
We don't know why Donald Trump started beef with verbose comedian Russell Brand, but things got real immediately. Basically Trump dumped on Brand out of nowhere, not expecting Brand to start linking to articles about Trump's terrible business league. It was kind of like watching a child box with Mike Tyson.

John Cleese and Piers Morgan Get Into an Old Man Twitter Fight
Piers Morgan writes that I didn't recognise him in a restaurant in New York.I did.I just didn't want to speak to someone I truly detest— John Cleese (@JohnCleese) June 5, 2015
It's safe to say that no one likes Piers Morgan, the stuffy, verbose, one time host of Piers Morgan Live. But one person who really hates Morgan is Monty Python member John Cleese. These two argumentative Brits got into it on Twitter, and by the time Morgan brags about being in the Entourage movie the whole thing becomes as sad as it is entertaining.
Donald Trump Spills the Beans on Ted Cruz
After running out of insane things to say (for the moment anyway) about women's reproductive rights and immigration reform, Donald Trump went on the offensive about Ted Cruz's wife. Not only did he call her ugly, but he insisted that Ted Cruz cheats on his wife because she's not as attractive as Trump's boo. Everyone in the political sphere piled on Trump for his dirty tactics, and it's probably the only time the majority of people have ever sided with Ted Cruz on anything.
Taylor Swift Misunderstands Nicki Minaj's Frustration and Feelings Get Hurt
@NICKIMINAJ I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 21, 2015
When the 2015 VMA nominations came out, Nicki Minaj saw what she believed to be an injustice against women with a specific body type and she let the world know about it. Swift took the tweet storm personally and started firing off tweets about how she'd always supported Minaj. All of that was fine, but then other celebs started inserting themselves into the fray and made the entire discussion of race, and MTV's ideal of what a star should look like a big joke.
