WARNING: Indirects headed your way!
If we've learnt anything from 2015, it's not to start a Twitter war when you can't finish it. Here are the very best beefs, comebacks and clapbacks of the past 12 months.
Zendaya vs. Giuliana Rancic
Queen Zendaya delivered the most eloquent and rational BLOOP in the history of BLOOPS in response to Giuliana Rancic's comments on an episode of Fashion Police. It was the first of many clapbacks in, what shall now be known as, Zendaya's most iconic year on Twitter.
P!nk vs. the Bodyshamers
"I'm not worried about you either :)" #MicDrop #PinkOUUUUUT
Liam Payne vs. the Trolls
Liam's attempt at a sassy clap back did not go unnoticed at PopBuzz HQ. We reward his for his efforts but warn him to try harder next time.
@tim__fitzgerald how's about u tuck into a huge slice of shade— Liam (@Real_Liam_Payne) October 1, 2015
Nicki Minaj vs. Taylor Swift
We'll always remember where we were the night Nicki and Taylor started their online feud of 45 minutes. We won't rehash the entire timeline but this 'abundantly clear' retweet by Nicki about not singling Taylor out almost made us spit out our tea. Because she was... really... wasn't she? Really? Be honest. It was about Taylor? LOL.
Ed Sheeran vs. Bruno Mars
In the wake of the Nicki/Taylor beef, lil bb Bruno thought he'd ruffle some of Ed Sheeran's feathers... But Ed dragged him before he could even enjoy the retweets.
@BrunoMars any way we do dis you gon' come up short— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) July 22, 2015
Zoella vs. the Haters
After being accused of ghost writing her best selling book, Zoe was also accused of paying people to write her own personal blog. And she dealt with it in the sassiest way possible. BYE HUN. XOXO.
"Zoella witch hunt". Appreciate it. Im going to go and write my blog now...— Zoë (@ZozeeBo) November 12, 2015
Cara Delevingne vs. Robb Stark
Robb Stark made a comment about Cara. Cara reacted BADLY. VERY BADLY. Be nice to him Cara, he died a horrible death.
@_richardmadden I have no idea who you are but I think it's little desperate for a grown man to be bad mouthing someone they don't know— Cara Delevingne (@Caradelevingne) September 15, 2015
@_richardmadden if you really want attention that badly, try focusing on your own work and not other people's— Cara Delevingne (@Caradelevingne) September 15, 2015
Zayn Malik vs. Louis Tomlinson
Zayn's year on Twitter has been problematic to say the least. Plz boys, for the fans... don't do this!
@Louis_Tomlinson remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine ?— zayn (@zaynmalik) May 6, 2015
Zayn Malik vs. Naughty Boy
June must have been a quiet one for Zayn because there was no beef. But it was only a matter of time before the budding relationship between Naughty Boy and Zayn came crashing down.
@NaughtyBoyMusic you fat joke stop pretending we're friends no one knows you .— zayn (@zaynmalik) July 13, 2015
Zayn Malik vs. Calvin Harris
After retweeting a quote about Taylor vs. Miley, Zayn toyed with the wrath of the Scottish DJ. Calvin hit back in a string of intelligent, well worded tweets... and Zayn came back with this. ROUND 1 TO ZAYN!
@CalvinHarris so i suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out— zayn (@zaynmalik) August 17, 2015
JK Rowling vs. The World
The undisputed Queen of Twitter, and winner of this list. Do not @ JK Rowling unless you've booked a 3 night stay in the Burns Unit. Srsly.

.@anakocovic21 Maybe because gay people just look like... people?— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) March 24, 2015
