CNN anchor Don Lemon in Twitter spat with Jonah Hill

(CNN / Los Angeles Times)

Social media can foster odd friends and even odder enemies. Deadmau5 and Madonna recently got into it on Twitter. But the oddest Twitter fight pair in recent memory may be CNN anchor Don Lemon and Jonah Hill, star of “21 Jump Street.”

The fight began Thursday night when Lemon took to his Twitter feed and announced, “Said hi to @jonahhill in hotel. Think he thought i was bellman. Didn’t know his name til bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind.”

According to several reports, Hill responded with a tweet that he has since deleted: "@DonLemonCNN 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.”

Lemon, who is gay, wrote back, “Hardly. You’re not my type. But I know rude. And u were.”

Hill then responded with, "@DonLemonCNN i walked out of the restroom and found you waiting for me. Shook hands, said hi and was on my way. Sorry if you found that rude.”


Hill is currently filming “The Wolf of Wall Street” with director Martin Scorsese.

Lemon has since gone on “Starting Point” with Soledad O’Brien on CNN to elaborate on Hill-gate.

The explanation, according to Lemon, involves a cabdriver, a missed flight and a hotel a bellman. Allow Mr. Lemon to explain.
