LeAnn Rimes is used to Twitter wars, though they usually involve her husband’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville. Last week, Rimes battled it out with her own ex, Dean Sheremet.

On November 23, Da Giggle Factory tweeted a picture of Rimes saying, “Remember the good days when @leannrimes was just a chubby country bumpkin married to a gay dude?”
While Rimes laughed at the tweet, Sheremet didn’t find the humor.
“Laugh away – Who’s the bully now?” He tweeted at Rimes. “I don’t do Twitter wars, but I do hate ignorance. Being gay isn’t offensive, not standing up for the truth is.”
Rimes said she was just laughing at herself.
“No, [Dean’s] not gay and there’s nothing wrong [with] it,” she posted. “I have always & will always support the community.”
However, Sheremet, who does charity work with Wellness in the Schools, didn’t think this was good enough.
“What I was offended by was someone using the term gay as a slur and her not defending it,” he told Us Magazine. “I don’t care about me. I’ve learned not to take things personally. This was out of respect to my many gay friends and fans.”
