Fans immediately chimed in on Twitter.

One fan said “I see shoes flying. Wig!”

Other fans asked for the two to bury the hatchet: “duet please,” “collab,” “collab pls, squash beef for good.”

Still, other fans were shocked to hear the two would headline the same concert: “OMG Bich,” “hope beef is over.”
