More than 41,000 people follow Milwaukee Brewers mascot Bernie Brewer on Twitter, for some reason. Bernie is very proud of his fact. Los Angeles Kings mascot Bailey launched a coup in an attempt to surpass Bernie as the most-followed mascot on Twitter.

Bernie didn't take kindly to this, so he started asking people to follow him and help him stay on top.

Then he started tweeting at Brewers players, other MLB mascots, and mascots from other teams in the Milwaukee area. He was really getting desperate. 

Things got really weird when Bailey peeled back the curtain on the reality of plush animals on social media. 

Mascots are the worst. Ban mascots.
