Following a harshly worded tweet from Ryan Adams that criticized Sean Hannity of Fox News’ political views, the news anchor dedicated a recent segment to mocking the singer-songwriter.
Hannity was infuriated by being personally called out and began taunting Adams, even going so far as to encourage him to come on the show and “explain himself.” Adams refused.
The string of tweets are as follows.
Hannity responded with a full-on tirade on his show that night, which can be read in full below.
Singer-songwriter– by the way, you probably don’t know him, he’s not that popular– Ryan Adams… we invited him on the show for a comment. His little agent replied, because he was too chicken, in an email: ‘Ryan’s statement is his tweet and vice versa’… Why don’t you have the courage to come on the program, defend yourself? He called me a ‘terrorist’…
If we wanted to torture terrorists, we could play his music, which isn’t that popular anyway, and a 24-hour-loop would drive them nuts… Come on the program, stop being a wimp, he’s hiding behind his rock star makeup like a little gutless little coward that he is.
