'Dancing with the Stars' host Tom Bergeron calls for truce in Nick Viall and William Shatner feud

Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron is getting in the middle of William Shatner's beef with The Bachelor star Nick Viall.

"Happy Birthday to my pal @WilliamShatner! Any chance I can negotiate a truce between you & @viallnicholas28," Bergeron tweeted Wednesday, March 22.

Bergeron was commenting on an unexpected feud that broke out on social media between the 86-year-old actor and Viall, 36, earlier this week in which Shatner began a campaign to kick Viall off Dancing with the Stars' 24th season.

Shatner was doing everything in his power to convince fans on Twitter that the latest Bachelor should be the first contestant booted from Dancing with the Stars.

Shatner seemed to suggest Viall is a "vile" man who doesn't deserve the Dancing with the Stars stint after his behavior on Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette a couple of years ago. (Viall memorably clashed with his fellow suitors and revealed he had sex with Dorfman in the fantasy suite on After the Final Rose).

"My goal for #DWTS is to knock Bachelor Nick out ASAP. Who is with me? Whoever your favorite is - just not Nick - make the 10 phone calls for them," Shatner tweeted Monday night when the new Dancing season premiered on ABC.

The Star Trek actor fired off numerous subsequent messages on Twitter criticizing Viall -- including statements such as "Don't vote Nick" and "Leopards don't change their spots. Don't be surprised if he shows up again on [Bachelor in Paradise]. I won't be."

Despite Shatner's persistent attempts to turn fans against the aspiring dancer, Viall simply replied on Twitter with a sad-face emoticon.

Bergeron also jokingly called himself "the Gandhi of Ballroom" on Twitter in light of Shatner's little tirade.

On Monday night's Dancing with the Stars Season 24 premiere, Viall and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd earned 24 out of 40 points for their cha cha routine from the judges and therefore tied for seventh place with another couple on the leaderboard.

Murgatroyd, similar to Viall's reaction, tweeted back at Shatner -- who co-starred on NBC's Better Late Than Never reality series last summer -- with only three crying-face emotions.
