CNN anchor Jake Tapper took to Twitter to slam Fox News for publishing his comments on the New York City terror attack Tuesday in a misleading manner.

After it was reported the attacker Sayfullo Saipov shouted “Allahu Akbar” while carrying out the attack, Tapper was heard saying on television: "The Arabic chant 'Allahu Akbar,' God is great, sometimes is said under the most beautiful of circumstances. And too often, we hear it being said in moments like this."

Fox, however, published an article Wednesday with the headline "CNN's Jake Tapper: 'Allahu Akbar' Can Be Said Under 'Most Beautiful' of Circumstances.” The headline, which was given the tag outrageous, left out the second part of Tapper’s quote.

The quote was further distorted in a tweet promoting the article, which read: "Jake Tapper Says 'Allahu Akbar' Is 'Beautiful' Right After NYC Terror Attack." The tweet has since been deleted. But Twitter users took screenshots to save it for posterity.

Tapper did not take well to the misinterpretation and said in a tweet Wednesday that Fox News was “lying.”

He followed the criticism with another tweet: ““Allahu Akbar” is a prayer; if we don’t understand how radical Islamic terrorists justify their evil using religion, West cannot defeat it.”

Tapper also called out two other websites, Infowars and the Daily Caller who had run articles with the headlines, “CNN’s Jake Tapper Calls Allahu Akbar ‘Beautiful’ After NYC Terror Attack and “CNN’s Jake Tapper Calls Allahu Akbar ‘Beautiful’ After Terrorist Attack [VIDEO]” respectively.

Despite Fox’s backtrack, the conservative network's anchor Sean Hannity reported Tapper’s scathing tweets and then commented, “Hey Jake, maybe that’s why you have low ratings. Tell your audience the truth.”

Tapper, in turn, responded to Hannity and said the latter was lying and Fox’s tweet was deleted because it was “false.”

The feud between Tapper and Hannity has been long-standing, with the Fox anchor previously asking his viewers to criticize Tapper on social media.

According to reports, Hannity had told people to "tell fake news Jake Tapper exactly what you think of his interview with Anthony Scaramucci. You can do it on Twitter. Or you can message Brian Stelter — Humpty Dumpty, Jeff Zucker’s stenographer about his Russia, Russia, Russia obsession."

However, the attempt at getting people to insult Tapper backfired on Hannity when Twitter users people began to praise the CNN anchor instead.

Tapper even retweeted the compliments and said in a tweet apparently addressing Hannity: “I don't think that one turned out the way he intended. Thanks, everyone. Very kind of you.”

He later talked about the experience on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" and said: "It was like 1,000 to 1. ... It was all these tweets like, 'Jake Tapper, Sean Hannity wants me to tell you what I think. I think he is a hack and you're the best.'"
