    Jack White dislikes a lot of people, but The Black Keys are pretty much number one on his shit list.

    He once told ex-wife Karen Elson to remove their children from school because he didn't want them to attend the same school as the child of Dan Auerbach, the singer-guitarist of The Black Keys, saying, "My concern with Auerbach is because I don't want the kids involved in any of that crap. That's a possible 12 fucking years I'm going to have to be sitting in kids chairs next to that asshole with other people trying to lump us in together." He's also accused The Black Keys of ripping off his sound.

    But things may have escalated. Patrick Carney took to Twitter this morning to call out White for trying to attack him at a NYC bar.

    Nobody tried to fight you, Patrick. Nobody touched you or 'bullied' you. You were asked a question you couldn't answer so you walked away. So quit whining to the Internet and speak face to face like a human being. End of story.


    We're not really sure what's going on, but it seems the two have hashed things out.

    Talked to jack for an hour he's cool. All good.

    Peace has been restored and The Black Keys/Jack White drama has cooled down, for now.
