A twitter war between two comedians was sparked Sunday morning when Jay Mohr accused Chelsea Handler of being drunk, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
It all began when the two were staying at the same hotel in Denver, Colorado Saturday night. Jay was performing at the comedy club, Comedy Works, and Chelsea performing in the much bigger venue The Wells Fargo Theater.
They ran into each other in the lobby and late Saturday night, Jay tweeted “Just saw Chelsea Handler in the lobby of my hotel. She was so drunk she could hardly walk. I think someone has a wee bit of a problem.”
Then early Sunday morning Chelsea, the host of E!’s Chelsea Lately, fired back “Jay Mohr thinks I ‘stumbled’ past him last night. There’s a big difference between stumbling by and just not interested.”
Jay was slammed in tweets including this one from ASUFan92 saying ” chelsea is da s**t and cooler than you and she knows how to hold her liquor…stop tweetin bout her..unless its good things!”
Another wrote: mjdx “ur a douche if God was a woman his name would be @chelsealately!”
Jay, who has 19,257 followers versus Chelsea’s 2 million followers, started back-pedaling by tweeting:
“Chelsea Handler is one of the funniest comedians working today. No joke. Any one that wants to go see great comedy should go see Chelsea.”
Obviously the the comedian realized he wasn’t funny, and tweeted again hours later: “Chelsea Handler performed for 5,000 people last night. I performed for 300. HUGE difference. I was making a joke. CH is one of the greats.”
After seeing hundreds of tweets in support of her, Chelsea put the war to rest by writing: “I love that my fans stick up for me. Thanks guys…you make a girl feel special.”
