The kerfuffle began on Friday morning, when comic (and Indianapolis homeboy) Mike Epps, a radio guest on K104 in Dallas, was asked to name an overrated comedian.

“One overrated comedian: Kevin Hart,” Epps answered. “In this business right here, guess what? Sometimes marketing could be bigger than talent.”

Hart, a stand-up bigshot and star of the recent Ice Cube vehicle Ride Along, caught wind of Epps’s slight and quickly took to Instagram to express his displeasure, posting, “You do clubs & small theaters… I DO ARENA’S man.” Hear more of Hart’s retort in the following video:

 

The beef soon spilled over into Twitter, where, as far as we could tell, it is still ongoing. Here are some of the hightlights:

 

 

The spat marks at least the second time Epps and Hart have Twitter-tangled (twangled?): Last year, Hart blew up on Twitter after Epps said he looked like a “drunk pug.”
