We might have picked the nominees for the biggest celebrity feuds of 2012 a little prematurely: A Twitter battle has erupted between out CNN newsman Don Lemon and 21 Jump Street actor Jonah Hill after an awkward encounter in New York last night.
“Said hi to Jonah in a hotel. Think he thought I was a bellman,” Lemon tweeted. “Didn’t know his name til the bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind.”
Hill responded, “I said hi. What do you want me to do, move in with you? I was in a hurry. Didn’t realize you were a 12 year old girl. Peace.”
Not one to let the matter drop, Lemon replied: “Hardly. You’re not my type. But I know rude. And u were.”
That’s not how Oscar nominee Hill saw it. “I walked out of the restroom and found you waiting for me,” he tweeted back. “Shook hands, said hi and was on my way. Sorry if you found that rude.”
Lemon got the last word, responding, “[I] was waiting for luggage. Bellman & I laughed at how self-important u were. Just being honest. Be nice. Stardom is fleeting.”
So is Lemon mad Hill didn’t know who he was or that he didn’t stop to shoot the breeze?
