Andy Richter Calls Out Nash Grier Over Stolen Twitter Joke

It looked like Nash copy/pasted a joke from comedian Jonny Sun.

  • NOTE: It looks like Andy Richter (and What's Trending) got fooled by a Nash Grier fan account. The point about stealing jokes still stands, though.

    Forget Drake and Meek - the real drama today is between comedian Andy Richter and Vine star Nash Grier over a stolen joke on Nash’s Twitter feed.

    Richter publicly called out Grier over this joke and notified Twitter, which has recently begun deleting stolen jokes on copyright grounds.

    Jonny/Jomny Sun, known for his cartoon avatar and offbeat misspelled humor, is a Canadian comedian who took up Twitter as a creative outlet after leaving sketch comedy - so Grier stealing his joke is more than just being rude, it also affects his career.

    Sure enough, someone did some digging and found the same joke, with the exact same wording, on Jonny’s feed from October 2014. Grier basically copy/pasted the whole thing, complete with Jomny’s signature syntax.

    Jonny appreciated the support from Andy Richter, retweeting him and sending his thanks. Comedians have to stick together, after all.

    Finally, this from Richter:
