In this corner, a sweat-suited despot who won’t think twice about using you for cannon fodder. In the other corner, a steely journalist who developed her skills as a press aide for the Nixon White House. Glee‘s Sue Sylvester meant to insult Katie Couric on Sunday night’s episode, when she responded to the CBS anchor’s question with a sneering, “I hate you, Diane Sawyer”…
…but apparently, Sawyer saw the show. Her ABC World News deemed Sylvester a Super Bowl “Loser,” and Sawyer signed off her Monday evening newscast with a “Watch out Sue Sylvester. Watch out.” Oh, it’s on. Sawyer tweeted Sylvester, “As a frm rejected Seneca JV wanna-be cheerleader I’ll meet you in the gym – bring the cannon.” Sylvester, a.k.a., Jane Lynch, responded in kind: “Bring it on, Diane Sawyer @ABCWorldNews. Your next gig will be hosting “Good Morning Emergency Room.”
Clearly, it’s all in good fun — that will certainly be resolved in some mega meta cameo in the future. But I’m determined to keep this feud alive, fake or not. And I’m not so sure that Sylvester hasn’t met her match in Sawyer. As ABC News’ John Berman says, “You don’t want to mess with Sawyer.”
Whose corner are you in, PopWatchers?
