Not Demi, but Justin.

"Backwoods" country singer Justin Moore thinks Ashton Kutcher was out of line by showing up at the American Country Music Awards this past weekend dressed like a rodeo clown, rocking a goofy cowboy hat and even goofier red suit.

After Sunday night's ACM Awards, Moore suckered punched the Two and a Half Men star via Twitter, calling Demi Moore's ex-husband the D word for allegedly "making a mockery" of traditional country music garb.

"Seen Ashton [K]utcher at the ACMs tonight," Moore tweeted. "What a douche! I don't care for people making a mockery of the way country artists' dress."

Yesterday, the news equivalent to mainstream country music (read: manufactured and inexplicably popular), Fox News, asked Moore to elaborate on his Kutcher beef.

"I found it distasteful as a country music artist and somebody who grew up the way that I did loving country music and trying to uphold the tradition of country music the way a lot of artists do."

Befittingly, Moore also used the Fox New spotlight to uphold the Constitution and celebrate his First Amendment right to say what he wants.

"That's the great thing about this country. I put my opinion out there and some people agree with it, some people don't, and that's fine."
