Adam Levine's Twitter War with FOX News Anchors

At this point we know that Adam Levine isn't one to mince words. In August, the Maroon 5 frontman tweeted "F*ck you VMA's," and now his potty mouth is once again filled with swear words. This time his tattooed ire is directed at FOX News. When the singer/soap box stander heard his music playing on the conservative channel, he was mad as hell and apparently could take it no more.
Levine tweeted, "Dear Fox News, don't play our music on your evil f*cking channel ever again. Thank you."
And apparently Levine's harsh words ruffled a few feathers. Anchors Greg Gufeld and Andy Levy both blasted back. Gutfeld tweeted, "Dear adam, That's not music," and "fun joke: why did Maroon 5 cross the road? because crappy music is legal there! @adamlevine." Levy also retaliated via tweet, writing, "Dear @adamlevine, don't make crappy f*cking music ever again. Thank you."
Sounds to me like we’ve gotten into a d*ck measuring contest via Twitter. Simmer down boys!
I’m not sure which I dislike more: Adam Levine or FOX News. Can't lie, it's a real toss up for me. As a liberal gal, FOX News goes against everything I believe. But then again Adam makes music I don't like (except I do lurve the infectious Moves Like Jagger) and he was rude to my mother recently; and nobody messes with my mom (The Insider's oh-so-bubbly Backstory gal Mary Murphy) and gets away with it. How ‘bout I just lock the three of them in a room -- Andy Levy and Greg Gutfeld can vehemently pontificate their right-wing ideas in one corner and Adam can loudly sing his nasally bubble-gum pop in the other. Then they can both melt each other’s minds with pure annoyance. That sounds like a healthy way to end a disagreement.
I think what’s really clearly about this whole kerfuffle: In another life, I should have been a mediator.
