Ouch! Never try to age-shame a lady, because she will have you in her sights.
Barbra Streisand locked horns on Twitter with a parody account in the name of US President Donald Trump’s right-hand-man John Kelly, after the account implied that she was hiding her true appearance.
The 75-year-old star had tweeted to the parody account @GenJohnKelly, that purports to be representing the recently appointed chief off staff, suggesting that Kelly should be “gagged”.
While it’s clear that the account isn’t really owned by Kelly – the Twitter bio lists him as a ‘medal of honor parody recipient’ and it lacks the blue tick of official recognition – the anonymous owner, who tweets about politics in Kelly’s name, couldn’t resist firing back.
It’s not clear whether the singer was aware that she was engaging with a fake Twitter account, but her fans loved Streisand’s snappy comeback regardless, earning her more than 10,000 likes in less than a day.
