Our 2 least favorite groups of people, Smash Mouth and the Kardashians, are in a Twitter feud, virtual murder-suicide too much to hope?

The world of Twitter is all about the beef. Athletes and celebrities who drink, musicians drink, burger restaurants literally beef and, apparently out of left field Smash mouth just started a Twitter feud with Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker. Yes, that Smash Mouth. The group that brought the “All Star” earworm to the world in 1999.
While we haven’t taken the time to research it, we assume the band hasn’t done much since the ’90s, so they have plenty of time to fight with the celebrity couple on social media. . It all started when Barker, well known as the drummer of Blink-182, gave his boo a fancy flower arrangement for Mother’s Day.
Why this bothered Smash Mouth, we have no idea. But the group’s Twitter account (which we can only assume is run by frontman Steve Harwell) took offense at the publication of the gesture, “not used to Travis Barker having a full-time publicist ( Kardashians) trying to keep him in the 24 hour news cycle. Glad you gave Kourtney a “lavish gift” for Mother’s Day. MDR. “

It’s a real headache unless you know that Barker recently showed his displeasure with the band’s choice to play a crowded concert in the midst of a pandemic. But even though Twitter went crazy, Smash Mouth was quick to say it was a joke.
ha ha !!!!!!!!!! Maybe contact us and ask us ???? No beef with Travis. We just think it’s funny to see him get caught in the Kardashian hype machine around the clock. It’s just weird and we’re sure he thinks so too. Ok Mehera, your story is now over. https://t.co/BWpxbuttZG

Whether this is a joke, we’ll never know. Perhaps in the future, the group will think twice before casting shadows for no apparent reason. Or maybe they won’t. It’s a lot more entertaining that way.
