It started last night, when Clay Aiken Tweeted, "Playing drinking game with my brother now. We drink every time we see a black person on screen at the RNC convention #soberasamormon."

Well, all's fair in love & war — and now Twitter, right? John Rich immediately wrote back, "We drink every time we see a black person at the RNC//CLAY! You should be ashamed for racist comments like THAT!WOW."

Then John wrote, "I wonder how long it will be till @clayaiken takes that idiotic post down. Clay, you're better than that...I hope. Sincerely, JR."

But he wasn't done yet. He added, "And to finish it off, @clayaiken hashtags soberasamormon? I thought your charity was for inclusion, not EXCLUSION. What happened?...Between the hashtag 'negrospotting' and what I've read ever since, I've just had enough of this racist nonsense. It's sick. PLS STOP."

Keep in mind Clay competed on the reality show for the National Inclusion Project, which focuses on ensuring children with disabilities get the same recreational opportunities as other kids.

After seeing a note from John, the American Idol champ pointed out his charity focuses on inclusion. "My charity is. Why isn't your party? ;-) @johnrich: @clayaiken I thought your charity was for inclusion, not EXCLUSION. What happened?"

So, it'll be interesting to see if the two stars call it a truce after their online debate! Whom are you siding with?
