The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney Claims Jack White Tried to Fight Him in a Bar

Update: Jack White has issued a statement to Entertainment Weekly regarding his alleged altercation with Patrick Carney. “Nobody tried to fight you, Patrick,” he said. “Nobody touched you or ‘bullied’ you. You were asked a question you couldn’t answer so you walked away. So quit whining to the Internet and speak face to face like a human being. End of story.”

The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney took to Twitter this morning to claim that Jack White reportedly approached him in a New York City bar and tried to fight him. Carney’s tweets didn’t get in to the, er, blow-by-blows, but he did refer to the Dead Weather percussionist as a “40 year old bully [who] tried to fight the 35 year old nerd.” And the best (worst?) bit: “Jack white is basically billy corgan’s dumb ass zero t-shirt in human form.”

If you’ll recall, White once accused the Keys of ripping off his sound, a comment he later apologized for on his website, saying, “I wish the Black Keys all the success they can get.” Read Carney’s tweets below.
