On Sunday, Sept. 22, Sun News host Ezra Levant checked his Twitter account and saw a post from a comedian he follows: Brent Butt, formerly from the hit television comedy series Corner Gas.
Brent posted a Tweet about the recent terrorist attacks at a mall in Kenya.
Mind boggling that a religious attack that kills 59 people is not even the most deadly religious attack of the past 48 hrs. #yayreligion— Brent Butt (@BrentButt) September 22, 2013
As a fan and follower, Ezra took note and replied.
From there the Twitter debate took on a life of its own, with many of Ezra's 24,000 followers and Brent's 46,000 followers chiming in.
Watch the video as Ezra describes how it escalated into the latest Twitter tirade.
