The battle royale to end all Disney battles of the past: The Jonas Brothers vs. The Sprouse Twins. Well, maybe more like Joe Jonas vs. Dylan Sprouse. On Dec. 1, Vulture ran its piece on Joe Jonas and the perils of growing up in the Walt Disney child-fame machine, which basically served as an excuse for Jonas to bash the company that made him and his brothers the most famous boy band of the late 2000s.

Bottom line: It took you too long to realize this, Jonas Brothers.
Bottom line: If you don't like what people see, stop whining about it and change it. Crybaby.

He claims that he and his brother Cole said "NO" when it was necessary and we're inclined to believe him, considering how seamlessly they transitioned from Disney to real life. The Sprouse twins may not have been world-wide phenomena along the lines of the Jonas Brothers, but they lived the life with them. Sprouse also made a good point about Jonas' article in saying:
