Blues Traveler singer won’t leave Kentuckian alone online

Blues Traveler frontman John Popper is caught up in a Twitter beef that’s lasted three years and a resolution is nowhere in sight.

On the other end of the feud?

A man from Versailles, Ky.

Forrest Rutherford, a proud Woodford Countian, first tweeted Popper in 2014, using a pseudonym to conceal his true identity. But a couple of weeks ago, Popper posted an aerial view of Rutherford’s Versailles home along with his address. A fan of Popper’s band then called on a Mexican drug cartel to pay a visit to Rutherford’s home, which, of course, did not happen because why would a Mexican drug cartel care about Blues Traveler’s Twitter critics?

In a story for The Daily Beast, Rutherford said he has tried contacting Twitter, but it’s gone nowhere.

It’s not just a Twitter problem, though; Popper has also taken the fight to Facebook. “On his Facebook post, he said I was a danger to his family and a stalker. That caused some comments on that post that were death threats,” Rutherford told The Beast.

There are a lot of thin-skinned people on the internet, but John Popper’s skin may be the thinnest. He’s been blasting this guy from the Blues Traveler’s band page because he couldn’t handle a little Twitter heat. Let it go, man.

    Isn’t this the same John Popper that was arrested with over a dozen guns and drugs in a van?
