The Rock announces Jumanji sequel and somehow ends up in a feud with Busted
'Tell me your thoughts face to face like real men do instead of yapping on Twitter.'
Over the weekend The Rock took to Twitter to announce that there would be a sequel to Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, which is great news, because not only because his action-comedy-sequel-reboot was very entertaining, but it also made a shocking $961 million at the box office, which was a surprise to just about everyone, considering it only cost $90 million to produce.

So the sequel will be arriving almost two years to day after the first one (not the Robin Williams first one, The Rock's first one), and that should make everyone very happy, right?
Well, apparently not, as some of the members of Busted were none-too-keen on the first one, and proceeded to make fun of it on Twitter... while keeping The Rock in the conversation!
Oh dear... I wonder if it will be the second worst film ever made?? @mattjwillis

Over the years, The Rock has proven not to be one to trifle with on social media - remember all of the kerfuffle with Vin Diesel and Tyrese following the announcement of his Fast And Furious spin-off with Jason Statham? - and true to his nature, The Rock responded:
Haha I have a fun idea - how bout you watch it with us and tell us your thoughts. Then we listen to your music and we’ll tell you ours. You know, face to face like real men do instead of yapping on Twitter.

So the lesson here is don't mess with The Rock, unchallenged king of Twitter smack-downs.
Especially if you're in Busted.
