Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nickelback Trade Shots On Twitter

In another bizarre turn in the 2017 news cycle, Arnold Schwarzenegger got into a minor spat on Twitter with the band that everyone loves to hate, Nickelback. The Governator posted a link to a clip where the former action movie star talks about America's distrust of Congress, calling them "less popular than herpes & Nickelback." Nickelback, rightfully not wanting to be associated with an STD (or Congress), quickly responded with a burn about one of Arnold's more awful movies.

Arnold's original tweet can be seen below, where he linked to his video for political website ATTN:, and threw in an unwarranted jab at the band.

Nickelback fired back but defended themselves the Canadian way, wrapping an insult within a compliment. "Big fans," the tweet read. "Approval rate this: Batman & Robin. Please leave us out of your future wisdom drops. Danke Shön Herr Governator."

For those lucky enough to have not seen 1997's Batman & Robin, the former California Governor played the villain, Mr. Freeze, who delivered some of the most cringe-worthy one-liners in film history.

To make this bizarre turn of events greater, Arnold conceded, apologized for his comment and gave a line reminiscent of his Mr. Freeze character.

Thankfully, Nickelback responded with simple "well played, sir. #Respect" and this short-lived feud is now over. Whoever is running Nickelback's Twitter account needs a raise, just sayin'.
