If there is one entertaining thing to come out of Hollywood besides movies, it’s the dumb beefs between celebrities. If it wasn’t for the city of mostly broken dreams, we wouldn’t have had stupid feuds like Katy Perry vs Taylor Swift, Donald Trump vs everyone, Joan Crawford vs Bette Davis, and of course, Kanye West vs Taylor Swift.
However, the latest beef to arise from Hollywood has the potential to be the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) feud.
That’s because it’s between Ryan “Deadpool” Reynolds and Paddington bear.
This whole spat began when the 2018 People’s Choice Award nominations were announced and Reynolds scored four noms for Deadpool 2. But shockingly, the ultra-violent film didn’t get a nomination in the Best Family Film category despite Deadpool making it abundantly clear at the start of Deadpool 2 that it is a “family” movie.
Understandably, Reynolds wasn’t particularly happy at the snub and decided to rage-tweet at his would-be family film competitor, Paddington.
So honored by all the @peopleschoice noms. Hope you vote for Deadpool 2 and feel free to write us in for best Family Film. Because watch your fucking back, Paddington.

Now Paddington may be a cute and cuddly bear who is as clumsy as he is friendly, but touch a nerve and he will mess you up with his plucky “hard stare”.
And ho boy did Reynolds touch a nerve because Paddington hit back with a short and simple tweet.

Now I don’t how how Deadpool and his “maximum effort” mantra will strike back against Paddington and his hard stare, but if I were a betting man, I would put $10 on the bear to win this little spat.
But since it’s Deadpool and all, who freaking knows what he’s got up beneath that red mask of his.
One thing’s for sure, this Hollywood feud is already brilliant and the only thing that will elevate it into “forever legendary” territory is if Hugh Jackman somehow chimed in.
