I guess comedian Damon Williams wasn't the only person who noticed the lack of black people at the Republican National Convention because singer and former "American Idol" runner-up took to Twitter to make a funny comment about the white-dominated event.

Aiken tweeted:

"Playing drinking game with my brother now. We drink every time we see a black person on screen at the RNC convention. #soberasamormon."

However, not everyone thought it was funny. Country singer John Rich replied to Aiken's tweet saying, "CLAY! You should be ashamed for racist comments like THAT! WOW."

The country singer on to write that Aiken should delete his "idiotic" tweet and badgered him for not being "inclusive" but instead "exclusive."

Aiken never replied to Rich, but it seems as if the tweet was more of a jab at the RNC than it was towards black people.

The two also disagree on political parties. Aiken voted for President Obama in 2008, while Rich was an avid supporter of McCain.

What do you think? Was the tweet funny or racist?
