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.

Azealia Banks Calls Out Lady Gaga

Back in 2013, sometimes rapper, all the time pot stirrer Azealia Banks called out Lady Gaga for allegedly stealing the title "Red Flame" from a demo that Banks sent the singer at an unknown point. Whether or not this beef is real or all in Banks' head is still to be seen.

Azealia Banks And Lana Del Rey Fire Cheap Shots 


Allegedly, it all started when Azealia Banks took to Instagram at the end of September 2018 to lambaste Lana Del Rey for speaking out against Kanye West and for doing, what Banks claimed, was "bootleg witchcraft." It was nearly two weeks before Del Rey finally responded via Twitter, saying: "Banks. u coulda been the greatest female rapper alive but u blew it. dont take it out on the only person who had ur back." 

Banks fired back immediately, and on an otherwise calm afternoon on October 9, the internet sat back and watched as the two music artists lashed out at each other with a barrage of petty shots and insults. Del Rey threatened to "f*ck you the f*ck up," then Banks responded that she felt "powerful," cryptically plugged her line of soap, the followed it up with some detailed body shaming, accusing Del Rey of having plastic surgery - but not enough of it - and advising her to invest in appetite suppressants. Del Rey, in turn, clapped back, announcing she would give Banks the number for her psychiatrist and creating a new trending hashtag, #uneedanewcocktail, in the process.

The fued has not yet been resolved, but some have speculated it's actually a promotional strategy for a new joint album between the women. One can only hope this is the case.

Drake and Meek Mill

This Meek Mill/Drake beef was the stuff of legend for a whole week. Meek not only outed Drake as a rapper who doesn't write his own rhymes, but he started posting about one of Drake's ghostwriters, putting Quentin Miller in the spotlight for the first time in his life. Drake seemed to take the beef in stride, and even dropped a couple of pretty good diss tracks; one of which was nominated for a Grammy.

Susan Sarandon and Debra Messing Get Political

During an election cycle things get heated. And Sarandon, who's never been shy of voicing her political beliefs, said that if Donald Trump is elected to the presidency he'll "bring the revolution." Everyone that heard this interpreted it differently, but Debra Messing was the only star brave enough/with enough time on her hands to argue with Sarandon on Twitter. Sarandon tried to explain her stance, but because Twitter is basically a giant echo chamber, her thoughts went unnoticed.
