Rapper Nick Cannon has placed his issues with Eminem to the side and taken aim at television host Chelsea Handler with a handful of taunting tweets.
Cannon’s tweets came as a result of an initial joke made by Handler.
Don’t get Nick Cannon angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. The actor, 30, turned into a, well, loose cannon, after E! talk show host Chelsea Handler bashed him on Twitter this week. “I just heard nick cannon is starting a comedy tour. Who’s going to do the comedy?” Handler tweeted Thursday. (New York Daily News)
Cannon followed up by launching an onslaught of tweets aimed at Handler.
“Wow @chelseahandler I actually used to have respect for you as a comic. But for one artist to diss another in the same art form. #Tasteless,” he tweeted. “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.” So, one tasteless move deserves another? Well, at least he kept everything in perspective. Staying true to his word, Cannon released an avalanche of insults on Handler later that night. “Funny how all of @chelseahandler fans are coming at my like I did something to her. I don’t even know this broad! She on my s–t! But since it’s all in fun and supposedly just comedy, Let’s get to the muthaf–kin’ JOKES!!” Cue the rimshots, if only in Cannon’s head: “Everyone knows @Chelseahandler had sex with the head of E! for her show. So when it gets canceled does he get residual p–sy for the reruns? @Chelseahandler Looks like she got hit in the face with a hot bag of nickels!” (E! Online)
The rapper also used Handler’s rumored romance with 50 Cent in his taunts.
“Just talked to @50Cent He said he made @chelseahandler get G-Unit tattooed on her balls!” Um, good one? “@50Cent wasn’t hitting @chelseahandler they was just sharing testosterone tips.” Gee, think someone hit a nerve? Not content to leave it there, Cannon then decided to broaden the list of celebrities he decided to insult by going after two superstars with much, much bigger platforms from which to hit back. Probably should’ve thought that one through a bit. “@Chelseahandler @Howardstern @Eminem Why do all these angry ugly whitetrash folks want beef with me? What I do? I’m a harmless corny dude!” Who doesn’t know how to stop. “@chelseahandler is like the new @joanrivers just without the funny and more plastic surgery.” (E! Online)
Earlier this week, Handler denied speculation of dating 50 Cent.
“I was with a bunch of friends in New Orleans, and he was one of the friends that was there. I was there for a show. Of course we were the only ones in the picture when there were 20 of us there. It made it look like there was something romantic happening…[We have] nothing romantic. Although I think he’s working on something. Every rapper who has been on the show is working on something with me. At some point I’m going to have to give in.” (Baltimore Sun)
