Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followhill found himself in a verbal handicap match after dissing pro-wrestling fans.
Followhill, 30, spilled bad blood with wrestling fans after tweeting, “Hey, adults. Let’s maybe not watch professional wrestling. Ya know?” What followed was a classic wrestling feud filled with all the trash talk fans have come to love.
Not to mention meme filled replies with classic faces like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and modern day stars like the New Day.
One particularly amusing reply saw a Twitter user ask, “Did this go how you thought it would?”
The Kings of Leon member backtracked on his statement after getting swarmed with more jabs than sweaty dudes in a Royal Rumble. “Ok. So I’ve gathered a lot of people love wrestling,” he tweeted. “Folks are angry. Really angry. I wasn’t being literal. Continue to enjoy.”
But that didn’t ease tensions whatsoever.
The bassist insisted it was all in good humour, but social media kept on delivering Hulk Hogan Atomic Leg Drop-level replies.
Followill, insisting on scoring the final pinfall, retorted with his own series of wrestling-related memes.
