Speaking at length for his love for wrestling on multiple occasions, the Buffalo rapper has included audio from famous wrestling matches throughout his music, and at times, faced legal troubles as a result. His most recent run-in with the wrestling community, however, was a simple war of words. Tweeting a picture of famous wrestler-turned-actor, Mr. T, draped in numerous gold chains, Gunn wrote, "The Diff between me an Mr T is My smallest chain cost more than all his sh*t
What was a seemingly harmless jab at one of the most fabled jewelry wearers of all-time, was not received well. Wrestling fans came out of the woodwork, letting Gunn know that, "Difference is I heard of MrT but I aint never heard of you," and "He didn’t even buy his smallest chain. Good on you for having really small chains though. Weird flex but *bicep flexing emoji* The most ardent response came from Mr. T's daughter, comedian Erica Clark, who wrote, "Difference is... All of it was real.. All of it was given to him All of it is his. He still has all of it.. And he was a movie star, TV star, commercial star with bedsheets. Pajamas, Lunch boxes, dolls, cereal, cartoons, Wrestlemania, albums... He's my dad too. Clark finished the tweet with a sarcastic kissing-face emoji, prompting a Westside Gunn tweet in praise of Mr. T.
"I love MRT I was literally just sitting here thinking how he was so dope for the Culture how he was able to jump into the wrestling world and be fly, get on TV shows, movies, action figures, he was a one of one," Gunn tweeted.
