Throwing Shade Part Two: Johnny DuPree's rebuttal

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Yesterday, Vanessa Pacheco and Mayor Johnny Magee sent some harsh words in Mayor Johnny DuPree's direction. 

Karrie Leggett Brown spoke with Mayor DuPree, who had a few zingers up his sleeve as well. 

DuPree, who was called old by Magee, rolled his way into United Blood services in a wheel chair, hoisting something Laurel holds dear to their hearts...The Little Brown Jug. 

The Little Brown Jug is an age-old tradition, and serves as the trophy won between the Hattiesburg and Laurel high school football teams when they play annually. 

DuPree slammed down his gold card, only something someone who gives copious amounts of blood can receive, and invited Laurel residents to give blood in Hattiesburg. 

"If you show up, I might even let you touch the jug," said DuPree. 

Also, Karrie kinda dissed Vanessa, too. She called her out on her fancy office lie by calling her out on at her teeny tiny corner desk. 

Things are obviously heating up, but keep in mind this is all for a good cause. 

The bash starts on July 28 in Hattiesburg at C-spire and in Laurel at the Cameron Center. 

Other locations include Collins at First Baptist Church Collins, Columbia at the Columbia Police Department, Waynesboro at the Wayne County Library, and Wiggins at C-spire on July 30. 

Who do you think will win? Sound off below, or tweet us with the hashtag #TeamLaurel or #TeamHattiesburg!

    Since the EF-3 tornado landed last year, William Carey University has spent the entire year working to rebuild their campus. “The feeling that we couldn't recover was pretty widespread but they didn't know our students, faculty and employees and our determination,” says President Dr. Tommy King. William Carey came from destruction to full restoration. Sophomore Cassidy Monk says, “The lord has just delivered us from such a tragic event..."

    The campus of William Carey was calm as the clock struck midnight and the date turned to January 21, 2017. Then-freshman soccer player Taylor Gautreaux turned in at about 1 a.m. She would be awoken two hours later to the sounds of a violent tornado just outside her dorm room wall.
