UPDATE – 09/14/15 11:35 A.M.: In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Jack White said the following about the bar incident between he and Patrick Carney:
“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.”
Carney then tweeted the following:
Talked to jack for an hour he's cool. All good.

So, we guess that’s the end of that, however, we’d still like some sort of comment from Billy Corgan and/or his “dumb ass zero t-shirt.”
For your viewing pleasure, here's a snazzy animated short of this whole drama that has dominated our attention this Monday morning.
So, Jack White walks into a bar...
…and tries to pick a fight with The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney. (No, seriously…this apparently happened Sunday night at a bar in New York City.)
Carney was so moved by the moment that he took to Twitter to give a rundown of the run-in.
So far, White has yet to comment about this alleged incident, nor has Billy Corgan or his “dumb ass zero t-shirt.”
