Actor William Shatner, having been designated “Pinhead of the Week” last week on “The O’Reilly Factor,” turned to Twitter Sunday evening to embrace the distinction.
In the “Back of the Book” segment of Friday’s show, host Bill O’Reilly, Fox News personality Brian Kilmeade and Bernard McGuirk, executive producer of the Imus in the Morning radio show, each selected a pinhead of the week. McGuirk chose Shatner for a comment he made about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Shatner recently said that Clinton may be the only potential 2016 presidential candidate who can unite the political parties and bring the country together.
The pop icon posted this tweet, inquiring as to the protocol of accepting his award, Twitchy reported:
@oreillyfactor Heard I won the pinhead of the week award. Is there a dinner you want me to attend? Do I get a plaque? I can send an address.

While some fans are encouraged by a potential match-up between Shatner and O’Reilly over the slight, others were complimentary of how well he took it on the chin:

@WilliamShatner don’t agree with your opinion but that doesn’t make you a pinhead.
