TWO and a Half Men's Jon Cryer got into a bizarre feud with Republican Representative Matt Gaetz over the weekend.

"Rep. @mattgaetz invited a white supremacist to the State of the Union, attempted to intimidate a federal witness, and endorsed a sociopathic bigot who applauded the deaths of migrants for congress," Cryer tweeted on Saturday, referring to Charles C Johnson.

"I just donated to his opponent @PhilEhr," Cryer tweeted.

Gatez, 38, then hit back at Cryer.

"Charlie Sheen totally carried two and a half men," Gaetz shot back, referring to Cryer's former costar on the sitcom.

Cryer quoted Gaetz' tweet, and said, "Is that why, after he left, it lasted for 4 more years and I won an Emmy for Best Actor in a Comedy?" referring to Sheen's departure from the sitcom in 2011.

The Two and a Half Men actor won two Emmy awards – in 2009 and 2012 – for his role as Alan Harper in the show.

He was also nominated for an Emmy for his role on the show in five other years.

Cryer added in a separate tweet that his comment "wasn't meant as a slam on Charlie."

"He was undeniably the star of the show. And a fantastic actor," Cryer wrote.

"Despite his issues, we had many more highs than lows. But you can’t say he 'carried' a show that lasted four years without him," Cryer said.

Gaetz fired off at Cryer again.

"What's an Emmy? An award Hollywood gives itself?" Gaetz wrote. "I win elections."

Cryer's first tweet came when he quoted Ehr, who claimed Gaetz, "the self-proclaimed #1 ally of Trump," has "done nothing but continue to blindly follow the lies."

Ehr was referring to an article from The Atlantic that claimed President Donald Trump called dead soldiers and veterans "losers" – which the president has denied.

As the feud began to trend on Twitter, as reported by, other actors came to support Cryer.

"This is the moment when @mattgaetz decided to show that in addition to being a loathsome person, he is also a dreadful television critic," Star Wars actor Mark Hamill tweeted. "@MrJonCryer for the WIN!!!"

Comedian and King of Queens actor Patton Oswalt also shared Cryer's first tweet, and shared emojis pointing to the tweet.

Gaetz is a strong supporter of Trump.

Cryer previously endorsed John McCain for president in 2008, per news reports.
