John Rich and Clay Aiken didn't seem to be big fans of each other when John made a guest appearance during Clay's season of Celebrity Apprentice this year, but John has raised their dispute to a whole other level!

The country star took offense to a tweet that Clay posted about the Republican National Convention this week. "Playing drinking game with my brother now. We drink every time we see a black person on screen at the RNC convention. #soberasamormon," tweeted Clay. According to Huffington Post, John fired back on his own Twitter account by accusing the American Idol finalist of being a racist!

"CLAY! You should be ashamed for racist comments like THAT! WOW," tweeted John. "hashtags soberasamormon? I thought your charity was for inclusion, not EXCLUSION. What happened?"

Luckily for the Claymates, Clay managed to gracefully shut down John after the "inclusion and exclusion" comment about his charity which helps children with intellectual disabilities. "My charity is. Why isn't your party? ;-)," tweeted Clay. Looks like this Twitter battle may not end for a while!
