The Fox News personality invited Fiasco to appear on his show, 'The O'Reilly Factor' but when he allegedly declined, O'Reilly verbalized his disdain for the Chicago MC. "Mr. Fiasco has been invited on 'The Factor' but has declined, possibly because he could not possibly defend that remark, which makes him a pinhead," he said. "Now the reason I say I wish I was named Lupe Fiasco, wouldn't it be great, 'The Fiasco Factor?' I mean, it would be tremendous."
As it turns out, Fiasco did not turn down an opportunity to appear on the show, and took to his Twitter page to clear things up. "Whoa! I got invited to the O'reilly factor and turned it down??? Thats news to me...would NEVER turn down the opp to push billys buttons!" he wrote.
O'Reilly has been known for his right-wing political views, and strong opposition to hip-hop artists, such as Fiasco's friend and fellow windy city native Kanye West, whom he crowned the "ultimate pinhead" on his 'Patriots & Pinheads' show segment.
Fiasco has come under fire for his explosive comments on President Obama, revealing in an interview that he not only doesn't vote but thinks that the commander-in-chief is a "terrorist."
Despite his controversial statements, the 29-year-old rhymer is sticking by his comments, receiving support from Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy who openly agreed with his statements.
No word yet on when Fiasco will appear on 'The O'Reilly Factor.'
