O’Reilly Attacks Montel Williams as ‘Cowardly’ for Not Coming on Show, Williams Fires Back


On night three of the Republican National Convention, there is a feud brewing between Bill O’Reilly and Montel Williams.

See, Williams was supposed to be on The Factor tonight, but then ended up not appearing. O’Reilly said on air that he left over “some gay thing,” and declared, “He will never be never be on this program again. He’s not a man of his word, he’s unprofessional… that is about as low as it gets.”

Minutes later, O’Reilly said he was “cowardly.”

Williams brought the heat on Twitter in response:

UPDATE–– Williams took to Periscope to fire back. And, um, wow:

“The word coward is usually used on people who have done most of the things that you’ve done, like embellishing lies about your credentials as a journalist, like the fact that your own daughter in a testimony in a court case… said that you dragged your ex-wife down a flight of stairs. You wanna talk about coward, homeboy?… We know who the coward is.”
