Oh snap! Bleijie and Palmer trash talk over Modern Family

WELL, that escalated quickly.

A war of words between Clive Palmer and Jarrod Bleijie raging on Twitter began over all things... Modern Family.

The Fairfax MP and Palmer Coolum Resort owner took to Twitter this morning to praise the filming of hit US sitcom in the Whitsundays.

The cast and crew are currently in Australia to film an Australian vacation episode.

They spent their first week in Sydney before flying to Queensland to film in the Whitsundays on the Great Barrier Reef.

The stouch began when Mr Palmer tweeted:

However, Queensland Attorney-General and Kawana MP Jarrod Bleijie took it as an opportunity to take a dig at the MP over his resort and reported staff layoffs, among other things.

However, Mr Palmer was quick to fire back.

Mr Bleijie has yet to respond.
