Should have taken the stairs ... three "Modern Family" stars had to be rescued by the Kansas City Fire department Friday -- after getting trapped in an elevator for an hour!!!
Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson were on their way to a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel, but got delayed when their elevator broke down, according to the Kansas City Star.
While trapped, the actors snapped a photo of the ordeal and posted it on Twitter while waiting for firemen rescue them.
According to the report, the Kansas City Fire Department freed them after about an hour and the threesome made it to the event (which they were headliners for) an hour late, but full of "hey we just got stuck in an elevator" jokes.
Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney is on the receiving end of A TON of Twitter hate ... because he raised the stakes in his war of words with Justin Bieber by changing his Twitter profile pic to one of the Biebs.
You'll recall ... Carney ignited the whole thing last week when he said Bieber didn't deserve any nominations, telling a TMZ photog, "Grammys are for like music, not for money ... and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy."
But now Carney has taken it up another level by changing his Twitter profile pic to Bieber, his name to Justin Bieber, and his profile description to "official twitter for the actual verified Justin Bieber DOS virtual buddy."
Carney's handiwork has annoyed both his fans and Bieber's, prompting tweets like:
-- "I used to like you, but why are you being such a d**k?" -- "do you even know how stupid and immature u look doing this. arent u like fifty?" -- "do you know how f**king dumb your acting and how stupid you look lmao" -- "Can we please have Patrick back?"
It's official: Hip-hop duo Mobb Deep's putting their beef on the back burner ... and officially heading out on a 20th anniversary tour later this spring ... TMZ has learned.
The duo -- a.k.a. Havoc and Prodigy -- were entwined in an intense rap feud ever since Havoc tore into Prodigy on Twitter ... claiming among other things that Prodigy had engaged in a slew of jailhouse relationships during his 3-year stint in the slammer.
But now, the two rappers have let bygones be bygones ... and recently announced they're headed back on the road together. First stop? The Paid Dues festival in L.A. this March.
Sources close to the group say it's just the first of many shows -- and will act as the unofficial kickoff for their April world tour ... where they'll be celebrating 20 years as a group.
FYI -- Mobb Deep's got a contest going on their Facebook page where they're looking for a rapper to open an upcoming show. They would have used Twitter, but ...
File this under things Hulk Hogan probably shouldn't have done -- publicly brag about his own daughter's sexy legs ... complete with the photographic evidence to back up his creepy opinion.
Hulk posted the photo of 24-year-old Brooke Hogan for his nearly 500,000 Twitter followers yesterday -- along with the caption, "Brooke's legs" -- which is kinda weird ... since ... you know ... HE'S HER DAD.
Still not as bad as that time he oiled her ass up though.
Miley Cyrus is trying to put a stop to a new sick trend that's emerged on the Internet -- a trend that involves self-described Justin Bieber fans mutilating their bodies after seeing the pics of the singer smoking pot.
The hashtag #cut4bieber has become the top U.S. trend on Twitter ... after people began posting photos featuring bleeding arms, allegedly the result of "cutting" by disappointed fans looking to pressure the singer into giving up his pot habit.
In fact, someone even started a website encouraging Bieber fans to cut themselves and post photos of the carnage .... until Bieber gives up marijuana for good.
But moments ago, Miley Cyrus weighed in on the troubling trend -- retweeting a messaging saying:
"#cut4bieber? Cutting is NOT something to joke about. There are people who are actually suffering from self-harm, this is so disrespectful."
It's unclear if Bieber is aware of the situation .
