Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti seems to have some difficulty with criticism.

Mediaite founder Dan Abrams appeared on The View Thursday to discuss several topics, including Daniels’ lawsuit against her former lawyer Keith Davidson, and Sunny Hostin pointed out that Avenatti blocked Abrams on Twitter.

“Honestly, at first, I didn’t know why,” Abrams said. “I have a site called Law and Crime which has written some things which had been critical of him, they’ve also written things that have supported him.”

“When he saw the things critical of him, he immediately apparently blocked me and blocked Law & Crime, and I guess he doesn’t like it when I say I don’t think he is going to win this lawsuit, but that’s, you know, that’s the way the world works,” he added.

Law & Crime Editor-In-Chief Rachel Stockman had a testy phone exchange with Avenatti last month over a critical story authored by Colin Kalmbacher, one of the site’s writers.

“Avenatti was not so pleased by Colin’s analysis, and let him know that it was ‘bullshit,’ ‘nonsense’ and ‘completely fabricated,’ demanding to speak to his editor,” Stockman told Mediaite. “Avenatti has every right to defend himself but resorting to legal threats, and then what can only be described as online twitter bullying sounds, well, quite Trump-ian.”
