Gay CNN anchor Don Lemon calls actor Jonah Hill 'a tool'

Actor fires back via Twitter: 'Didn't realize you were a 12 year old girl'

You might not want to invite CNN anchor Don Lemon and actor Jonah Hill to the same party anytime soon.

It seems to two had a face-to-face encounter in a New York City hotel on Thursday (8 November) that was so unpleasant that it has resulted in a Twitter war.

'Said hi to Jonah in a hotel,' Lemon wrote in a tweet that kicked things off. 'Think he thought I was a bellman. Didn’t know his name til the bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind.'

Lemon, in a subsequent tweet referred to the Moneyball star as 'a tool.'

Hill fired back: 'I said hi. What do you want me to do, move in with you? I was in a hurry. Didn’t realize you were a 12 year old girl. Peace.'

But there was no peace.

Lemon replied: 'Hardly. You’re not my type. But I know rude. And u were.'

Hill responded with his side of the story: 'I walked out of the restroom and found you waiting for me. Shook hands, said hi and was on my way. Sorry if you found that rude.'

Replied Lemon: 'Was waiting for luggage. Bellman & I laughed at how self-important u were. Just being honest. Be nice. Stardom is fleeting.'
