This year’s Republican National convention is definitely one we will remember for its’ entertainment value. First it was the rogue speech by Melania Trump, then the Rock Star Donald Trump entrance, then the Laura Ingraham Hitler salute, then the Ted Cruz snub, and now the heated Bill O’Reilly and Montel Williams feud.
Williams walked off the “O’Reilly Factor” set before a slated appearance on the Fox News program.
After which host Bill O’Reilly ripped Williams on air, saying that Williams had “walked out in a huff” because “he was mad about some gay thing.”
“Does anybody know what gay thing upset Montel Williams?” he asked his production crew. “No, nobody knows.”
O’Reilly continued, “He’ll never be on this program again. He’s not a man of his word. He’s unprofessional.”
O’Reilly later called Williams “cowardly.”
Shortly thereafter, Williams, who is best known for his long running talk show: Montel Williams show, and who served in both the Navy and Marines got wind of O’Reilly diss and immediately fired back on Twitter:
“Nothing Bill O’Reilly said about me tonight was accurate. Calling me a coward when he hasn’t served is ridiculous and unprofessional.”
