Typically it’s Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine that’s the one taking requests, but on Wednesday, The Voice mentor had one for Fox News: Don’t play my music. Or, more specifically, as he put it on Twitter, “Dear Fox News, don’t play our music on your evil f–king channel ever again. Thank you.”

While the network didn’t have an official statement regarding the tweet or which of his songs in particular that Levine was referring to, Fox News hosts Andy Levy and Greg Gutfeld of the late night program Red Eye responded personally to Levine on Twitter. Levy wrote back to the pop star, “Dear @AdamLevine, don’t make crappy f–king music ever again. Thank you,” while Gutfeld fired off tweets from his page like, “Dear adam, That’s not music” and “fun joke: why did Maroon 5 cross the road? because crappy music is legal there! @adamlevine.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Levine has let his opinion about a cable network be known on Twitter. Back in August the singer (who also brought up his gripe with Fox’s American Idol over the summer) tweeted his feelings about MTV and their 2011 Video Music Awards ceremony, when he posted, “The VMA’s. One day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music,” he wrote. “I’m drawing a line in the sand. F— you VMA’s.”

So, is Adam Levine pretty much filling the void that John Mayer left behind on Twitter? Or does he simply speak the truth? Who was way harsher, Tai: Adam Levine or Andy Levy and Greg Gutfeld? Share in the comments section below.
