— -- Neither Donald Trump nor Russell Brand is a stranger to controversy.

However, last night, they created one of their own, engaging in a war of words on Twitter.

Trump, 68, appeared to start the fight, tweeting that he saw Brand, 39, on TV, and was not at all impressed.

"What the hell do people see in Russell?" he asked his Twitter followers. "A major loser!"

Needless to say, Brand was not pleased, and at one point, tweeted a link to a story entitled, "Exposing How Donald Trump Really Made His Fortune: Inheritance from Dad and the Government's Protection Mostly Did the Trick."

For their complete fight, see the tweets below:
