Canadian country music superstars Dallas Smith & Brett Kissel have engaged in a war of words on Twitter for the last 2 days, and things are seemingly pretty tense.
I’m going to do my best to walk you through the timeline of this Twitter war, in chronological order.
It all started when Dallas Smith took to Twitter to call out some rowdy fans for their behaviour at a Side Effects Tour stop in Dawson Creek this week.
Tonight I got to watch girls and guys punching, pulling hair, groping girls ect ect. Disgusting Dawson Creek. Most fans were great. Others ruined it. Grow the fuck up.— Dallas Smith (@dallassmith) November 15, 2017
Some Twitter users took issue with the tweet Dallas sent.
@dallassmith please just think of things like this and consider the impact not for emotions not for people like me but for our community as a whole. Not from a place of hate but from a place of community. I get it a small group of people can ruin it but there is good here. pic.twitter.com/dHgxGLLr40— Emily Wheat (@WheatEmily) November 15, 2017
So Dallas sent out another tweet.
Then, randomly, Brett Kissel decided to chime in.
Dear Dawson Creek: Your city is great. Don't let some hair pulling idiots at a concert or a foolish tweet ruin your spirits or ruin your reputation. I've been there many times and love your community. See you March 10th!— BRETT KISSEL (@BrettKissel) November 16, 2017
Dallas Smith, not one to back down, fired back.
Dear Brett Kissel fans: I was standing up to the groping, sucker punches and assaults on concert goers. This says a lot about Brett's character. Nice to see its finally coming to light.— Dallas Smith (@dallassmith) November 16, 2017
Brett: Didn't you just play @WeMovement? Fucking act like it. It's not all about social #'s. https://t.co/36CJ0Mlxkr
And the war of words had officially begun.
Dallas - you stood up to groping, sucker punches, and assaults. Great. Completely support. Everyone does. You called out a town based on the actions of a few. Not great. Don't support.— BRETT KISSEL (@BrettKissel) November 16, 2017
I can't wait to return March 10th to a great town - to put on a great show.— BRETT KISSEL (@BrettKissel) November 16, 2017
Then, the fans got involved, and even started picking sides.
I read the original tweet shortly after it posted, it said "most fans were great, others ruined it". It saddens me that fellow artists don't fully support Mr.Smith & back him up & want to promote positive change. You deserve better DS. (I also have BK March tickets to dump now)— BrendaM (@some1else2) November 16, 2017
People should be ashamed and pissed off that shit like this happened in their town. Then an artist takes a stand about it and he is bashed for saying something. You're either part of the problem or part of the solution!!!— Corey Haskell (@CoreyCh48) November 16, 2017
Heck, even Andrew Hyatt got involved.
Clearly, things had gotten out of hand, so the backtracking began.
