William Shatner Is On a Mission to Get Nick Viall Kicked Off 'Dancing with the Stars'

There's Twitter beef, and then there's William Shatner-level Twitter beef. For those of you who stayed off Twitter during Monday's premiere of Dancing with the Stars, y'all missed a frenzy of targeted tweets from the Star Trek actor on your timeline. Here's a clue: he's not happy with a certain ex-Bachelor. 

Although Nick Viall stole many hearts during his season of The Bachelor, it's safe to say that he definitely hasn't stolen the heart of William Shatner. On Monday night, Shatner blessed his followers' timelines with a whopping 19 individual tweets condemning the reality star, essentially launching his own campaign to kick Viall off of DWTSHis Twitter tirade began with a simple message: “My goal for #DWTS is to knock Bachelor Nick out ASAP. Who is with me?” 

It wasn't long before the cultural icon coined his own hashtag to really seal the deal.

The reason for the beef is not certain, but what is certain is that Shatner is on a mission. At one point, he began to directly reply to Twitter users urging them not to vote for Nick, tossing emojis and hashtags left and right. He even brought #BachelorNation into it!

Both Nick and his dance partner Peta Murgatroyd responded to the fiery tweets with a couple of sad face emjois, garnering two completely opposite responses—oh wait, Nick got no response! Shatner obviously has love for everyone on the show besides Nick, sending sweet well wishes to Peta. "Peta, you know I love you. Congratulations on becoming a mommy. Just can't cheer you on this season. Love to Maks & Shia," his response to the pro dancer read.

It just so happens to be Shatner's birthday today, so if Nick sticks around for a little while, we definitely know one person who will be bummed he didn't receive his requested present.

Pettiness at its finest!
