Unlike 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather, the Twitter beef going on between Mavs owner Mark Cuban and Donald Trump seems to be the real deal. Initially, the feud started when Cuban responded to Trump, who promised he would donate $5 million to charity if Barack Obama showed his college transcripts and U.S. passport records, by offering $1 million to a charity of The Donald's choosing if he shaved his head.
Obviously, Trump, a man who covets his hair, didn't take the deal but instead fired off with a series of tweets directed at the Mavericks owner.
Dummy @mcuban is at it again trying to use me to get publicity for himself!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2012
Only 1 mill. dollars @mcuban? Offer me real money and I’d consider it. Your team and networks lose so much money I doubt you have much left!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2012
.@mcuban When Apprentice became the #1 show on tv you tried copying me with The Benefactor- a complete and total ratings disaster for @abc.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2012
.@mcuban, Shark Tank was shoved to Friday evening-- Friday is considered “dead television.” Besides, you are not the star (& never will be).— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2012
Not one to back down from a verbal spat, Cuban responded with a tweet that borrowed from a joke Obama made previously in response to Trump's $5 million offer.
Come on@realdonaldtrump ,you need to do better with the insults.This reminds me of when I used to pick on you when we were kids in Kenya— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) November 5, 2012
While the Cuban/Trump Twitter war seems far from over, who's winning the battle so far?
