Ryan Adams Tweets & Deletes Insults Directed At The Strokes

In Elizabeth Goodman's new book, Meet Me in the Bathroom, about the New York Rock and Roll scene of the early 2000s, The Strokes discuss the influence Ryan Adams had over guitarist, Albert Hammond Jr, and basically accuse Adams of getting Hammond hooked on drugs. The story made the rounds on news sites during promo for the book but just today Ryan Adams took to twitter to insult The Strokes - seemingly in response to the negative things that were said about him in the new book. The tweets have since been deleted, but many news outlets reported on the tweets (including Rolling Stone) and Paste magazine managed to snap a few screencaps of some of the tweets.





(OP adores the reference to Liam Gallagher in this one. As you were, x).





(I'm cackling!!)

Stereogum reported on more of the tweets that apparently followed the initial two before Adams deleted them all:

A lot of the tweets are clearly misspelled. I'm not familiar with his twitter account so I don't know if that's the norm for him or if maybe he was drunk and went on a bitter roasting spree, only to delete the tweets after he sobered up, but I don't currently see any apology or standard celebrity "I got hacked!1!1!" tweet on his account right now. Thoughts, ONTD?
