Celebrities Reacted To Nicki Minaj & Taylor Swift Twitter "Feud" Because Of Course They Did
Talk about some bad blood. By now the whole world knows about the "feud" between singers Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift that erupted on Twitter Tuesday night, following the announcement of the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards nominations. While Swift was nominated for nine awards between her videos for both "Blank Space" and "Bad Blood," Minaj only received three: two for "Anaconda" and one for her "Bang Bang" collaboration with Ariana Grande and Jessie J. Miffed that her copiously meme-d "Anaconda" video wasn't up for "Video Of The year," Minaj took her displeasure to Twitter.
The 140-character restriction that Twitter imposes isn't exactly tailor made for great conversation, and perhaps that's why things escalated so quickly when Swift responded to Minaj's tweets, which did not actually mention the "Bad Blood" singer. Minaj tweeted that, "If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year." Swift took this to be a direct slight against her own video for "Bad Blood," and she accused the rapper of "pit[ting] women against each other." Minaj later clarified that she was not talking about Swift, and continued to point out that her comments were about the industry as a whole.
Naturally, few folks have been silent on this matter, and celebrities have reacted in droves to the duo's conversation. While it's clear that this "feud" between Swift and Minaj brought up some very important points about the industry, it also brought up some gems from celebs following along. Including such people as...
The Breaking Bad star was the first to jump into the fray, offering the bickering songstresses some breakfast food if they put their feud to rest:
Personally, I would take him up on the offer. Who doesn't love a fat stack of flapjacks?
The Billy On The Street and Parks And Rec funnyman took the feud as an opportunity for a little bit of self-promotion, posting a link to a music video he did for Funny Or Die back in 2013 called "Glitter And Ribs," parodying Swift's distinctive style:
Too late to add "Glitter And Ribs" as a write-in candidate for video of the year?
The "social media personality" accidentally inserted herself into the fray when she tweeted this photo of herself, which originally bore the caption "Imma let you finish":
Some people mistook her reference to her husband Kanye West's infamous interruption of Swift's VMA acceptance speech to be a commentary on the ongoing feud. But Kim quickly quashed those rumors with a couple of follow-up tweets:
Phew! Close call, Kim K.
Mars, a Video Of The Year nominee himself for Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk," brazenly poked fun at Minaj's and Swift's spat, inviting fellow nominee Ed Sheeran into their own private throwdown:
The redheaded Brit (nominated in the category for "Thinking Out Loud") took Mars up on his offer:
Of course, they wasted no time in hilariously escalating their faux-feud:
I gotta give the win to Sheeran for those rhymes.

But this AHS fan account probably had the best idea:
Now that would be scary. Something tells me this hypothetical iteration of AHS would end up even bloodier than Dandy Mott's spree killing at Fraulein Elsa's Cabinet of Curiosities last season.
