    Now this is nutty.

    Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet engaged in a Twitter feud with Kiss members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.

    Stonestreet went after the band members on Twitter, accusing them of bullying his mother on a flight! But it turns out to have been a fib.

    He tweeted: "Turns out both Gene Simmons AND Paul Stanley were on my mom's flight to Kansas City. Gene tried to bully my mom out of her seat and when she said no, he said, 'It's ok, I just bought the plane' and then asked her for HER autograph. – dick move... The Paul called her 'Aunt Bee' – dick move."

    Whoa! Then he wrote: "I can't wait to run into you two old ass make-up wearing fucks and tell you in person; you should have been nicer to my mom."

    Simmons replied: "Someone posted a story which is blatantly untrue. The essence of it was that we were mean to somebody's mother. It's simply untrue."

    Things escalated quickly, with Stanley calling it a misunderstanding and offering an apology. He wrote: "I actually waited so your mom could get off first. The rest – a misunderstanding of joking. I apologize anyway. Good son."

    He replied, "Thank u for that. She did tell me you let her go first. I will tape my glow in the dark KISS posters back together now."

    Then, Stonestreet took to Twitter again to say that the story was false. He wrote: "Take care. I assure u (you), I will have a stern talk with my mom about making up stories. Old people, ya (sic) know? OUR apologies."

    Crazy! Visit twitter.com/ericstonestreet for a rundown.
