Following an explosive January, February also saw a number of intense celebrity feuds. Check out the list below of just a few of the stars who got into fights with other famous faces in February 2017.

1. Arnold Schwarzenegger vs. Donald Trump: The president initiated the personal feud after he slammed Schwarzenegger at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month. Trump took a swipe at the new “Celebrity Apprentice” host, blaming him for the show’s plummeting viewing figures. “The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster,” Trump said during his time on stage. Schwarzenegger, however, immediately responded to the president’s jab on Twitter. In a short video he posted, the actor said, “Hey Donald, I have a great idea. Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job and then finally people can finally sleep comfortably again. Hm?”

2. Nicki Minaj vs. Giuseppe Zanotti: In an explosive Twitter rant, Minaj accused Zanotti of racism after she claimed the designer failed to offer her financial compensation for using her name on a number of his shoes. “This is wonderful. #GiuseppeZanotti seems to think it’s ok to name his sneakers after me but his PR says they won’t take our call. Lol,” Minaj wrote. “Racism & disrespect won’t b tolerated,” she added, encouraging her followers to tweet #GiuseppeWhatsGood in an effort to make it a trending topic. Since her outburst, Minaj has continued to call out the designer on social media.

3. Sinead O’Connor vs. Arsenio Hall: Hall filed a $5 million defamation lawsuit against O’Connor in 2016 in response to her alleging he contributed to Prince’s death. According to O’Connor, the talk show host allegedly supplied the late singer with illegal drugs “over the decades,” suggesting that Hall played a role in his passing. O’Connor, however, recently retracted her comments about Hall in an attempt to settle the lawsuit made against her. She said in a statement, “I apologize for my Facebook posts about Arsenio to the extent that anyone thought I was accusing him of acting as Prince’s drug dealer and supplying him with illegal hard drugs, or insinuating that Arsenio had something to do with Prince’s death.”

4. Jimmy Kimmel vs. Matt Damon: While good friends in real life, the Academy Awards host mocked his longtime “nemesis” during his opening Oscars monologue. “I’ve known Matt so long, when I first met Matt, I was the fat one,” Kimmel joked. He continued, “He’s a selfish person, those of you who’ve worked with him know that.” Later in the show, the talk show host targeted the actor for the second time, sarcastically speaking about his fake admiration for Damon’s film, We Bought A Zoo. The Oscars host also mocked Damon when he was trying to present the award for Best Original Screenplay, conducting the orchestra to play music every time he spoke.
