It started with a drinking game and turned into a Twitter war. Clay Aiken and John Rich got into it during the Republican National Convention. Aiken tweeted that he was watching with his brother and playing a game where they would drink every time they saw a black person on screen. He added the hashtag “soberasamormon.” Rich replied, saying Aiken “should be ashamed for racist comments like THAT!” and wondering how long it would be until Aiken took down that “idiotic post.”
The “idiotic post” has not yet been taken down but Rich finished his evening by saying,
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.
