Washington D.C. [USA], Apr 8 (ANI): Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity has vowed to keep attacking comedian Jimmy Kimmel until he apologises for joking about the accent of United States First Lady Melania Trump.

In an episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!,' the 50-year-old had joked about her Slovenian accent, which apparently didn't go down too well with Hannity.

What followed was a war of words on their respective shows as well as on Twitter.

On Saturday, Hannity tweeted that he was not going to stop until Kimmel apologised to the First Lady.

"On top of being a pervert you really are dumb, even with 100 writers. I have not been partners with @Disney since 2007. I'm really trying to help you here; CALL IGER! Apologize to the First Lady and I'll stop. If not, I will NEVER stop. EVER!," he tweeted.

After Kimmel's initial comment on Monday, Hannity had, allegedly, called him an "a** clown" and a "despicable disgrace" on his own show.
