CNN anchor Don Lemon was fresh off election coverage and spending six hours in an airport when he encountered actor Jonah Hill at a hotel this week.
When the 46-year-old TV journalist approached Hill to tell the "Get Him To The Greek" star he was a fan, Hill's handshake was apparently not up to Lemon's standards.
Hill, who has since removed his tweets, initially responded via Twitter, writing: "I said hi. What do you want me to do, move in with you? I was in a hurry. Didn't realize you were a 12 year old girl. Peace."
To which the openly-gay Lemon responded:
But Hill didn't like the accusation, and tweeted back: "I walked out of the restroom and found you waiting for me. Shook hands, said hi and was on my way. Sorry if you found that rude."
Lemon's final response to the actor read:

Eventually, one of the members of the CNN panel suggested a smokeout as a truce, adding, "Your love of marijuana could bring you guys together."
