Just when you think you've seen it all, 2019 comes at us with yet another news item for the ages.
It should really come as no shock that Iggy Azalea and Peppa Pig got entangled in a bizarre Twitter feud after Peppa announced that she was dropping an album this Friday.
Because of course they did.
The big news was tweeted from Peppa Pig's official Twitter account on Monday afternoon.
Peppa Pig My First Album is available to stream this Friday! 🎤Are your little ones excited? You can already listen… https://t.co/6DobuHIiX1— Peppa Pig Official (@Peppa Pig Official)1563214980.0
Unfortunately, this Friday also happens to be the same day Iggy Azalea is set to drop her sophomore album, In My Defense.
Azalea was understandably devastated by the prospect of being crushed by a cartoon pig.
It’s over for me now. https://t.co/pWfsAgUbUz— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGY AZALEA)1563269254.0
Perhaps there was some sarcastic shade happening, but Peppa then responded in kind, doubling down on her own bravado using one of Azalea's lyrics.
@IGGYAZALEA Peppa's so fancy, you already know 🐷 https://t.co/Z1gA0QHZ27— Peppa Pig Official (@Peppa Pig Official)1563296668.0
Fans had to pick their jaws up off the floor.
