Shall we call this White-on-Black crime? According to the Twitter feed of the Black Keys’ drummer, Patrick Carney, he was accosted by Jack White [pictured] in a New York City bar last night, who challenged him to a fight. Carney tweeted his thoughts on the issue, which you can see in their entirety below, but his remarks include, “I don’t fight and don’t get fighting but he was mad!!!” and “Jack white is basically billy corgan’s dumb ass zero t-shirt in human form.”

However, White has a different view on the situation. In a comment released to multiple outlets, White responds to Carney’s allegations: “Nobody tried to fight you, Patrick. Nobody touched you or ‘bullied’ you. You were asked a question you couldn’t answer so you walked away. So quit whining to the Internet and speak face to face like a human being. End of story.”

Musicians—they’re just like us! In that they shit-talk one another on the internet and get drunk at bars and puff their chests out.

UPDATE: Carney has tweeted that he has spoken with White over the phone, and “he’s cool.” Thus ends the Dad-Rock Beef of 2015.
