Were 'Modern Family' star Eric Stonestreet and 'Community' actor Ken Jeong really fighting on Twitter?

Posted on

More than likely, yes.

It all started late yesterday afternoon with a Tweet from Eric Stonestreet’s verified Twitter account directed to Ken Jeong (Senor Chang!). It read: “@kenjeong hey ken. Why r u always giving me the stink eye at events? What did I do to u? I think u are super funny, so what gives?” What followed was a string of insults that led into the night and had 3 a.m. Sandra furrowing her brow in confusion. Indeed, men, ‘What gives?’ (Note: For now, the nonsense appears to have stopped.)

Jeong’s rep had no comment. But premiere week seems like a great time to call the star of a rival network’s comedy show “tubby” or “neddle [sic] d–k.” I love these guys, but I don’t like my Twitter feed clogged up with fake fights. I say we take this to the streets: Cage match anyone? Or a mud fight? Ooh, ooh: paintball wars part II!

What do you think, PopWatchers? Are we the butt of these comedy stars’ joke?
