Nash Grier Feuds With Random Person on Twitter, Over Will Grier
Nash took offense to a particular tweet. The person quoted one of Nash’s tweets and said, “Not sure why this is a necessary tweet.”
Nash fired back, “With Will or not, the Gators are coming at LSU! Chomp Chomp!”
The person was using a profile image of 75-year-old sportscaster Verne Lundquist.

After hundreds of fans attacked the user, the user wrote up a blog post making fun of Nash.
