Michael Ian Black, LeVar Burton battle for Twitter supremacy with #LeWar

Mibtweet

MibtweetWho doesn’t love a good celebrity feud? Seriously, the Hilary Duff/Faye Dunaway action kept me happy for hours and hours. The only thing better than a real celebrity feud is an awesome and hilarious Twitter-based feud like the one currently simmering between Michael Ian Black and LeVar Burton. Black launched what he calls “LeWar” on Feb. 21, when he discovered that Burton has over 30,000 followers on Twitter. (Including us. We follow both sides of this epic battle.) Black, who currently has around 6,000 followers, was stunned. “If that many people follow He With the Visor, shouldn’t I have at least that many people reading my every missive?,” he wrote on his blog. Thus began LeWar, Black’s attempt to get more followers than Burton.

From Burton: “Good Morning. Yesterday marked 3 weeks for me as non smoker! In spite of the stress brought on by #LeWar, my resolve is firm.” Yay, I have a new favorite meme! #LeWar rages on.

Whose side are you on, PopWatchers?
