After Fox News correspondent Laura Ingraham criticized NBC's "Today Show" for having Chris Brown perform on the show despite his past incidents last week, Bill O'Reilly invited her to his own show, "The Bill O'Reilly Factor." There, she continued to explain how Brown was being let off the hook for hitting Rihanna in 2009 and O'Reilly read out some of Brown's defensive comments made via Twitter adding that the artist "does not live on this planet."

 

Rapper 50 Cent had swooped in to defend Brown on his Twitter page saying, "I just saw a clip on FOX news Hating on NBC for having chris brown on unbelievable. I'm never watching that again. He paid for his mistake a--holes."

 

O’Reilly extended both Brown and 50 Cent an invitation to his debate show, but 50 was quick to shut the conservative host down and then continue to rail on the Fox News hosts.

 

"Anyway thanks for the invite to your show old billy bobb when we become powerful enough to change the world in conversation Ill stop by lol," he said.
