Arnold Schwarzenegger left himself badly exposed when he threw shade at Nickelback on Twitter
When Donald Trump assumed the office of President, there wouldn't have been many out there that thought Arnold Schwarzenegger would be one of the leading campaigners calling him to account on social media.
The duo have a battle of words on social media, with Trump taking shots at Schwarzenegger's poor ratings on the Celebrity Apprentice while the Austrian Oak criticising Trump's suitability in occupying public office.
Most recently, Schwarzenegger went after the US Congress, pointing towards a 2013 approval poll which ranked the house of representatives behind both herpes and Canadian band Nickelback.
When Congress is less popular than herpes & Nickelback, how do 97% of them get re-elected? Gerrymandering. WATCH: https://t.co/SoX0tdlTeM— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) February 14, 2017
Needless to say, Nickelback were less than thrilled at being used as an example of failure and decided to fire back at Schwarzenegger's weak spot.
.@Schwarzenegger big fans. Approval rate this: Batman & Robin. Please leave us out of your future wisdom drops. Danke Shön Herr Governator.— Nickelback (@Nickelback) February 14, 2017
Realising he'd been trumped, Schwarzenegger was quick to tip his hat to the Canadian rockers.
And like all nice Canadians, Nickelback were happy to put the whole episode behind them.
@Nickelback That's... ice cold. I hope we can agree that we need a freeze on gerrymandering, guys. Thanks for the reply.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) February 14, 2017
