NEW YORK, July 31 (UPI) -- Russell Brand slammed Sean Hannity's "Sympathy for the Terrorists" segment, calling it "childish" and "unreasonable" on his Internet show, The Trews.

The Fox News host was discussing the crisis in Gaza when he brought on Yousef Munayyer, a Palestinian-American and the executive director of the Jerusalem Fund, to represent the Palestinian perspective in a debate. Hannity started the debate, and ended it, by yelling at Munayyer. "Is Hamas a terrorist organization?" the conservative pundit shouted at his guest toward the end of the segment.

Brand called the attack "aggressive," "childish" and "rude."

Hannity cut Munayyer off when he tried to answer the host's question.

"Good luck with that mate," Brand said. "Sean doesn't want an answer to his question. Sean wants to say more stuff while jabbing his finger aggressively."

"I don't want to be petty or trivial, but Sean Hannity does look a bit like the Ken doll in the Toy Story 3 film," said the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star.
