File under: No surprise at all. Celebrities are getting into hot water on Twitter over the Republican National Convention.
Today’s 140-character fueled feud is between Clay Aiken and Big & Rich singer John Rich. Aiken tweeted, “Playing drinking game with my brother now. We drink every time we see a black person on screen at the RNC convention. #soberasamormon”
Can you guess which part made Rich upset? Surprise! It was the whole thing. Rich fired back (multiple times) on Twitter, writing, “”@clayaiken:@cowboytroy We drink every time we see a black person at the RNC//CLAY! You should be ashamed for racist comments like THAT!WOW.”
“I wonder how long it will be till @clayaiken takes that idiotic post down. Clay, you’re better than that…I hope. Sincerely, JR” Rich continued.
“And to finish it off, @clayaiken hashtags soberasamormon? I thought your charity was for inclusion, not EXCLUSION. What happened?” the country singer added.
Rich knows all about Aiken’s charity work — he’s referencing Aiken’s The National Inclusion Project — because they both appeared as contestants on The Celebrity Apprentice. Aiken was runner-up last season, and Rich won the 2011 cycle.
But Aiken didn’t stop with Rich’s exclusion dig – Aiken’s tweet hasn’t been deleted, and he responded to Rich’s claim by saying, “My charity is. Why isn’t your party? ;-)”
Agree to disagree? The spat may continue tonight if fellow reality-show star Donald Trump is the rumored surprise convention guest. Something tells me Aiken will have plenty to say about that.
Who should be the mystery GOP convention speaker? Clint Eastwood? Tim Tebow? Hologram of Reagan?
