News talk show host Sean Hannity and singer/songwriter Ryan Adams were imbued in a Twitter tirade on Tuesday night.
The disagreement between the two men began on Monday night after Ryan Adams posted a message on his Twitter account directed at Hannity, calling him a chicken man. Just before, Hannity had complained on Twitter that the entire world was devoid of good role models, including A-Rod and Anthony Weiner in his statement.
"@SeanHannity Your entire soul is controlled by fear and by hate. Evolve little chicken man. See reality," Adams wrote on Twitter complaining of the news host, although it is not clear if Adams complaint was directed at Hannity's role model comment. The tweet was later removed from Adam's account.
Hannity responded to the tweet by extending an invited to Adam on the Hannity show. The Fox News host suggested that it would be best for Adams to explain himself in person. Adams declined.
"Thanks @seanhannity for inviting me on your show. If I wanted to be yelled at I would go see a Youth of Today reunion show. : )" Adams wrote on Twitter.
"Confident on Twitter, but too scared to come on and explain yourself?" Hannity wrote in a quick response.
"I don't negotiate with terrorists," Adams replied.
But regardless of whether Adams wanted to appear on the Hannity show or not, the singer was still made a topic of debate. Inviting Miss Oklahoma Anna-Marie Costello and Fox News contributor Tamara Holder to his guest panel, Hannity dedicated a segment of his show to Adams titled the "Liberal Twitter Tirade."
During the segment, speaking of Adams, Hannity said, "you probably don't know him, he's not that popular." Hannity continued by explaining that Adams refused to come on the show.
"He's hiding behind his little rock-star makeup like the little gutless coward that he is," Hannity said. "I think you're just insulted you don't have a rock star on your program," Holder pointed out, adding, "It's not a big deal, Sean."
As the conversation continued to go away from Hannity, he resolved that they should move on with the show.
"Most people don't even know who he is, so forget it. Let me move on," he said.
