Billy Eichner: Carrie Underwood blocking me on Twitter was a 'great honor'
Carrie Underwood blocked comedian Billy Eichner on Twitter, and he's still laughing about the snub.In fact, the "Bros" star called it a "great honor."While recounting the spat on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," Billy said Carrie's social media move came during COVID. "There was this thing where she, like, during the height of COVID, she retweeted a speech by some Republican guy [Matt Walsh] and said that kids shouldn't have to wear masks in schools," Billy said.The way the "Billy On The Street" star saw it, Carrie was "letting her political views be known for the first time."Soon after, Billy made several jokes about Carrie and her views, and "she didn't like that," he claimed. "It was one of the great thrills of my life," he said of being blocked by the country superstar.Last year, after realizing he was blocked, Billy tweeted out a screenshot that informed him he's persona non grata on Carrie's Twitter. ICONIC. pic.twitter.com/NBBHLFCpD9"ICONIC," he said at the time. Ryan Grantham, the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" actor who was convicted last week of killing his own mother, is scared he'll become a victim of abuse in prison because on his slight stature.His lawyer, Chris Johnson, is now arguing that Ryan shouldn't be housed in a maximum security prison, telling TMZ the actor could be "physically, psychologically and sexually intimidated" by hardened criminals. Although Ryan is 24, he has a slim stature, weighing about 100 lbs and standing 5'2".
