Iggy Azalea has a weird Twitter feud with a superhero fan site.

Iggy Azalea on Twitter is like the bizzaro J.K. Rowling on Twitter.

They both should have far better things to do with their time and money, yet both actively engage with apparently whomever reaches out to them on the social network. The difference is that Rowling likes to set fans straight and guide them to better understanding, whereas Azalea just picks fights.

Last night, the Twitter account SuperheroFeed made this rather lame joke, just cause:



For whatever reason, Iggy decided to set things straight.



That would not stand for the honorable heroes of Superhero Feed. They felt the dire need to stand up and defend themselves.



They referred to the reports that Iggy had a lot of help writing her breakout hit Fancy.

Azalea then, again for whatever reason felt the need to drop the mic:



After pushing way back a concert tour and dealing with a flopped summer song with more Twitter feuds, you'd think Azalea would spend her time scheming on how to avoid that great, yawning pit of mediocrity that reaches for her career.

Everyone's gotta pick their own fights.

Disney Japan Twitter doesn't get national tragedies.

Either Disney Japan's Twitter has a pretty cruel sense of humor or some ignorant employees.

On Aug. 9, the official Japanese Twitter account for Disney tweeted out the following message to its 277,000 followers:



According to Kotaku the Japanese at the top reads "Congrats on a trifling day" before the Alice in Wonderland message.

Well, you see, Aug. 9 was also the 70th anniversary of the World War II atomic bombing of Nagasaki. In that event, according to Wikipedia, "roughly 39,000–80,000 people were killed. About half of these died immediately, while the other half suffered lingering deaths."

Not exactly a "trifling day" for the country who marked the occasion with solemn ceremonies, commemorating all of those 'unbirthdays'.

Kotaku, through translating Japanese news site My Game News Flash, points out that this isn't the only time the Twitter account has made a less-than-sensitive post.

The account posted this, reading "Enjoying your summer vacation?" last year on Aug. 15.



Aug. 15 marks the date of the Japanese surrender in World War II.

Additionally, the account posted this, reading "Giving you mid-summer sympathy" on Aug. 6.



Aug. 6 is the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing, in which some 70,000-80,000 people died.



As Kotaku says:


My Game News points out that Disney Japan's Twitter account typically does not post messages like this (instead, the tweets are typically PR, introducing movies, TV shows, events or products), making these questionable tweets stand out even more. Why were these dates selected, people wondered.



Disney Japan has since apologized for the tweet and deleted it off of its account.

That's why you always get a screen shot.



Twitter deity, and great comedian, Patton Oswalt took one for the American team Aug. 6 and live-tweeted his perspective on the first Repbublican primary debate.

The enormous affair hosted the top 10 candidates highest in the polls. It gave a scant two hours for them to differentiate themselves from each other and attempt to not talk about the rich elephant in the room — Donald Trump.

The hashtag #NewHarryPotterBooks trended last night, and left a lot of people hopeful, bewildered, confused and then very, very angry.

It was all part of an @Midnight hashtag game meant to come up with humorous (fake) Harry Potter books.

But Harry Potter fans didn't take it as a joke. And they let everyone feel their anger.
