Rooney-Vardy feud sparks hysteria on Twitter … and spectacular memes

Coleen Rooney sent the football world into hyperdrive on Wednesday morning when, in a lengthy Twitter note, she explained how private details of her personal life were being leaked to English tabloid The Sun.

Rooney, the wife of D.C. United star and England legend Wayne Rooney, accused Rebekah Vardy of being responsible for the leak, explaining – in a dramatic piece of storytelling – that she planted fake stories on her private Instagram account over the past five months to identify who was giving out her information. After limiting access to her account to ensure the stories were viewable only to Vardy, Rooney came to her conclusion.

Vardy, who’s married to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, responded in kind, denying the allegations.

Twitter had a field day with the feud. Here’s a collection of our favorite reactions:
