Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold's Twitter fight

Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold's Twitter fight

It was not the most epic of Twitter battles, but it was still entertaining.

The Hollywood Reporter has put together a "script" of the tweets between Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold who at one time were husband and wife. The pair split almost 20 years ago, but apparently still keep in touch occasionally via Twitter.

It all looks to have started when Arnold tweeted that he had cleaned out his garage and donated several items, including his old wedding videos:

Barr followed up by inquiring as to whether those were their old wedding videos and the two were off and running.

According to THR the online conversation went like this:

Roseanne: Of me? bc (sic) if they are, I would like that footage since it has my kids in it-it's not really your choice2 destroy.

Tom: It's still there. They are only charging $1 for it and the proceeds go to a good cause.

Roseanne: what the f**k is wrong with U?

Wow.

The former couple volleyed like that for a bit before they eventually made nice, even trading comments about Arnold's young son. The majority of the tweets appear to have been deleted, but admit it: you would totally watch a TV show with the two of them squaring off wouldn't you?
