The war of words between conservative talk show host Sean Hannity and late night host Jimmy Kimmel took a decisively ugly turn Friday as the Fox host slammed the comedian as a "pervert" and "Harvey Weinstein Jr." for raunchy comedy bits taped years back where he asked women on the street to feel his crotch area.

"This is ABC’s @jimmykimmel aka Harvey Weinstein Jr. Asking 18 year old girls to grab his crotch and “put their mouth on it”. Jimmy that’s you being a pervert a--hole," Hannity wrote. "How would you feel if that was your daughter? I bet @Disney is so proud."

Hannity continued on the offensive Friday.

But Kimmel did respond. The late night comic noted each of the women who participated in the skit was a "willing participant" who signed a waiver before the segment broadcast and in no way compared to the abuse some have alleged occurred at the hands of Weinstein.
