Twitter Reaction To Ackman, Icahn Battle
In what was one of the most epic smackdowns to take place on live TV between two hedge fund titans, Bill Ackman and Carl Icahn battled it out on CNBC’s “Fast Money Halftime Report” on Friday, over Ackman’s short position on Herbalife, and dealings going back to 2003. Arguably one of the greatest duals in financial TV history had Wall Street mesmerized. Every one was talking about the fight and Twitter lit up with reactions. Here are some of the best ones:
Icahn and Ackman fighting on #CNBC beats any Reality TV show

@ManUvogt10 This is what Icahn has always done though. Buys stake in bad companies, beats up the board, and forces a fix. Still kicking ass

Memo to Bill Ackman and Carl Icahn: The fight between you is so entertaining that I don't care who wins. Just keep it going for 15 rounds.

So when do Ackman and Icahn Snapchat junk pics with a ruler to each other to see who wins this debate?

I think it would be quite funny if Carl Icahn tries to bust out Bill Ackman, by making a tender offer for $HLF Carl does have the money..
