Last year, rock band Kings of Leon aired their disapproval to have their songs featured on . The creator of the hit musical TV show, , is not happy with it. And via the The Hollywood Reporter, he let out his sentiments.

“F— you, Kings of Leon. They’re self-centered assholes, and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It’s like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music.”

On the other hand, is not letting such statement be ignored. He fired back at Murphy on Twitter.

“Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating 7yr olds how to say f–k.”
