The Legendary Billy Crystal, arriving in all of his Hollywood / New York presence to grace the stage at the #121212Concert, was being totally blasted on Twitter, even as he spoke.
I have to report that even my own mother, who I’m visiting here in Georgia, remarked that BC looked different – older. “It still looks like him, but it’s not him,” she said. No. It’s Billy Crystal. I thought perhaps Mom was the only one who was criting pour Mr. Crystal.
The Twitterverse was all over him:

Somewhere Jack Palance is making jokes about how Billy Crystal is still on stage.

The teasing was so bad, and so extensive that “Billy Crystal” became a Twitter Top Trend for a while.
Now, Twitter’s turned off him – until he comes back on stage.
