Al Roker and the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Have Reignited Their Twitter Feud Again

From Good Housekeeping

  • Today show star Al Roker appeared to start a feud with the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Twitter account @30RockTree.

  • Last year, the two engaged in a hilarious battle full of tree puns.

  • Al began this year's quarrel, tweeting that he and the tree were going to get "lit" tonight.

  • Al will be cohosting NBC's annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony at 8 p.m. ET.

Al Roker and the Rockefeller Christmas Tree are *bark* at it again.

Last year, the beloved Today show star and organizers of the famous conifer's sassy Twitter account @30RockTree got into a very festive and very punny tweet battle. Now, it looks like the two are reigniting their feud again mere hours before the tree lighting ceremony begins at 8 p.m. ET tonight on NBC.

This time, it was Al who started trouble. On Wednesday morning, the weatherman tweeted out a video of himself yelling at the unlit sapling, "Hey, @30RockTree — you and me, we're getting lit tonight, baby!" His tweet caption read, "Oh, it’s on @30RockTree. Pressure is on you tonight starting at 8pm ET ON @nbc with #christmasinrockefellercenter."

Of course, @30RockTree wasted no time responding to Al's posturing. "You're going to be reading about us on @PageSix tomorrow...," the tree shot back.

So far, no other jokes have been slung back and forth between the two — but if we had to guess, it's only a matter of time before the cringe-y tree puns start flying again. After all, last year's battle lasted several days. On December 2, 2019, @30RockTree joked that it had "paid that stick of butter to annoy @AlRoker on TV," referring to Al's viral moment while broadcasting the Macy's Thanksgiving parade. In response, Al tweeted back, "I am coming for you, thank you very mulch." From there, things just got crazier and crazier.

Safe to say, this year, like last, will end in Al and the tree becoming fronds — er, friends — once again. In 2019, Al seemingly surrendered and tipped his hat to the evergreen once its lights were turned on. "Hey @30RockTree looking pretty good tonight. Hope you had a good time. You look #lit," he tweeted at the time.

And so, until a spruce truce is reached again, keep refreshing those Twitter feeds. More corny *oaks* are *fir* sure on the way!
