Matusow vs. Selbst Demonstrates a Nation Divided – Twitterverse Responds

Things got ugly this past week as vocal poker pro Mike “The Mouth” Matusow tweeted that disgraced Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, accused of sexual harassment and even rape, was essentially doing what is “natural in Hollywood”.

Matusow has since removed that tweet but the damage is already done in terms of a riff between him and fellow female poker pro Vanessa Selbst.

She called him a “disgusting human being” and he expectedly took great offense but questioned what Selbst had against him.

He tweeted:

I've never been anything but nice to you! Never said 1 bad thing ever about you, yet you attack me because your way of fuck off!

Matusow has been a devout supporter of US President Donald Trump and some of those defending him on Twitter were quick to turn the fight into a “Trump Supporter vs. Trump Hater” feud.
