War of words kicks off over an emoji
William Shatner has got into a bizarre Twitter row with former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach.
The war of words started after the Star Trek star sent the singer an emoji of a purple devil face in response to a tweet that Bach liked that Shatner took offence to.
Bach posted a series of Tweets some of which have been deleted. You can view some of the exchanges below.
In one he wrote: “I will run past your fucking house every day until the day I die. Deal with me with your phaser cell phone bullshit.”
He added: “Maybe better for you to stick behind your computer screen. I will run over to your house on the 13th. Perfect day for it.”
Shatner seemed confused by Bach’s reaction and eventually stopped responding directly to his tweets.
“I don’t know what to think of it but hopefully he’s just having a bad day and tomorrow he’ll be fine,” Shatner added.
Bach interviewed the Star Trek star in 2011 at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, where he told the actor he had looked up to him since he was a kid. Shatner was presented with the “Honorary Headbanger Award” at the event.
Bach recently joined Guns N’ Roses onstage in Las Vegas.
The former Skid Row singer shared vocals with the band’s frontman Axl Rose on a version of classic ‘Appetite For Destruction’ track ‘My Michelle’.
“Thank you for making us so fucking happy, Guns N’ Roses,” Bach told the crowd as he arrived onstage. “Is this fucking great or what?”
