SAN ANTONIO – Twitter seems to be the social medium platform of choice for celebrity feuds. And singer-songwriter/producer Richard Marx is in a doozy of a Twitter spat with a San Antonio sports talk show host.
Marx, best known for his 1980s hit “Right Here Waiting” and his model/tv-host wife, Daisy Fuentes, recently visited San Antonio and lamented on social media about the lack of vegan food along the River Walk.
When you're walking around San Antonio, going restaurant to restaurant, asking if they have vegan options. pic.twitter.com/1uKVtwPG32— Richard Marx (@richardmarx) October 4, 2017
Me: any vegan options?— Daisy Fuentes Marx (@DaisyFuentes) October 4, 2017

Some San Antonians tweeted the couple back with suggestions including La Botanica, Green and Viva Vegeria. But Ticket 760 sports talk show host, Mike Taylor, brought the topic up on his show recently and told Marx and Fuentes, “Hey dude, this ain’t the place to be asking for vegan.”
That’s probably not the comment that ruffled the singer’s feathers. Taylor also called Marx “unfamous” and asked about Fuentes, “…was she nothing but a nudie magazine girl or did she do something of note?”
Marx got wind of the radio segment and took to Twitter this afternoon with a six-paragraph tirade against Taylor, whom he called a “shameful, pathetic excuse for a male.”
Since then, Taylor and Marx have exchanged profanity-laced insults. You can see some of that exchange below, but here’s yet another warning that the tweets contain language that many may find offensive.
Partial Twitter exchange:
Hey @miketaylorshow you referred to my wife, who's run a $1b clothing and lifestyle brand for 12 years as a "nudie magazine girl? True?— Richard Marx (@richardmarx) October 11, 2017
I'd have to go back and listen. I'm not sure it was that exact phrase. Why? https://t.co/N58obVJUMY— Mike Taylor (@MikeTaylorShow) October 11, 2017
Because you're an ignorant mouth-breathing asshole who has accomplished nothing but insults a successful, hard working woman. That's why— Richard Marx (@richardmarx) October 11, 2017
I may be an asshole but you're still stupid asking for vegan in San Antonio. Go write another hit already. https://t.co/A5FXVsdVKT— Mike Taylor (@MikeTaylorShow) October 11, 2017
Bring it asshole. You asked if she was "just nothing but a nudie magazine girl" when a 5 sec Wiki search tells u who she is. https://t.co/7gI83bcwq7— Richard Marx (@richardmarx) October 11, 2017
I hope you've been hacked because I was a really big fan of your one good song. https://t.co/QAqGHQj88N— Mike Taylor (@MikeTaylorShow) October 11, 2017
