There was more to the drama than just a name, however.

Daniel went on to gripe, "But then I realized that he’s the most boring person I’ve ever met."

At that point, Joey said, "You don't need to be mean to Mr. Franta."

"I'm not being mean," Daniel insisted in the cringey exchange.

Daniel instead insisted, "I’m being honest."

But he wasn't done throwing shade at his ex's friend. Nope. Not even close. This is when the conversation got even more vicious.

Daniel's last word on Connor: "Anyway, nobody cares about him anymore.”

And while the exes moved on to other topics, Connor did not, and posted a response to his TikTok.

Connor Franta says Daniel Preda is only known as Joey Graceffa's ex.

In his short response regarding Daniel's accusation that he is "boring," and that no one cares about him, Connor addressed Joey's ex, saying, “Legend has it that you are still jealous of me Daniel. You have been subtweeting me. My name has been in your mouth and on your mind for years."

“You’re obsessed with me. I don’t know why. I don’t think about you. The internet doesn’t think about you," Connor went on to claim.

Connor went on to shame Daniel, "You are categorized as one thing: Joey Graceffa’s ex-boyfriend."

Finally, Connor one-upped Daniel in the insults department, snarking, "Leave me alone. If my crime is being boring, your crime is being nothing."

Meanwhile, Daniel wasn't backing down from his statements even after being taken down a notch.

"I'm here to entertain," he insisted after a commenter called his statements about Connor "unnecessary and rude."

But commenter after commenter weighed in that Connor "ate" with his response.

Undaunted, Daniel dipped into the comments to further insult Connor, saying he was "never friendly or kind" to him in the ten years they'd known one another.

And so, it seems there will be no resolution to the Connor Franta and Daniel Preda drama anytime soon. As for Joey, he clearly isn't taking sides either, which is a smart move if you ask us!
