    Ah, the battle of the British boy bands. It's just like Twi-hards vs. The Hunger Games fans!

    OK, we kid, but the boys of One Direction and The Wanted (as well as their very loyal followers) did get into one epic Twitter feud last week when they exchanged some fighting words on the social media site.

    It all started with a tweet from One Direction's Zayn Malik who called Max George of The Wanted a "geek" on his microblogging page (remember, this is the same Max who was allegedly involved in the Lindsay Lohan debacle).

    "Psy and me getting messy #geekandproud," Max initially tweeted, triggering Zayn's insulting response.

    "The first step is totally acceptance. #geekoftheweek. You display just how much of a wannabe you are. : )," he wrote.

    Max then retaliated, saying, "That's not very nice, @ZaynMalik. I was just starting to like you and your RnB songs, too."

    And that's all it took for a full-blown Twitter war to break out between the insanely popular musical groups, as members of both bands began to weigh in and tweet support for their respective teams.

    "Zayn Malik had his '1 Stripes' knickers in a twist, bro," Tom Parker of The Wanted tweeted in defense of his British bandmate.

    But Zayn fired back, writing, "Mate, if I had a face like yours, my hair would be the last thing I would worry about. : )"

    Enter One Direction's Louis Tomlinson, who joined in to tell Tom to "Pipe down bad boy." To which Tom responded, "sorry 'sass master.'"

    And things appeared to be over when Malik responded, "Let's not even discuss vocal ability, boys. : ). I would love to chat but have to run through rehearsals."

    But then the feud took an ugly turn.

    "Enjoy rehearsals. Stay off the bud...It makes you cranky," Max dissed.

    "Alright chlamydia boy," Malik fired back. (Seriously?) 

    "Tell me you're problems without the 8 security in NYC.. The only problem I have with you is the s--t banter. Grow up son," Max wrote in response.

    To which Zayn tweeted back, "I'd f--king love to, see you in New York big man ha u clown."

    All four boys have since deleted their volatile tweets, with the exception of some wise words from Max.

    "Some boys nowadays have really bad social skills."

    Too bad Lindsay Lohan never weighed in. 

    Be nice, boys!
