Peter Rosenberg got into it with a radio caller who labeled Method Man a "thug."

Peter Rosenberg got into a heated exchange with a radio caller who had complained about Rosenberg being a Method Man fan. The caller, who identified himself as Greg, labeled the Wu-Tang Clan rapper a "thug." The argument went down during an episode of the Michael Kay Show, earlier this week.

“I see this picture of Method Man in the background,” the caller said, referencing a poster of the rapper behind Rosenberg. “What’s that got to do with sports radio?” When Rosenberg asked what the caller's issue was, he answered, “It just bothers me,” before calling Method Man a “thug.” He added: “You know his arrest record? I’m here for sports information.”

In response, Rosenberg got heated: “Greg, shut your mouth. Shut your st*pid, ignorant mouth. You know nothing about Method Man. He’s a thug? Shut your st*pid, racist mouth, Greg. How about that? Shut up. No more for you, Greg. Anyone who would look at a picture of Method Man and be offended, when you look up what he’s contributed to the world and you wanna call him a thug, you’re a racist piece of garbage.” Check out the clip below.
