As a Smashing Pumpkins show in Chicago on Wednesday, the band was selling "F**K You Anderson Cooper" t-shirts, adorned with pictures of cats in bow ties, reports Consequence of Sound.

The bad blood started in October, when Cooper made Corgan the unlikely subject of the a segment on his "RidiCulust" for having the audacity to pose with two kittens on the cover of the magazine, PawsChicago, and his appearance in a commercial for a local furniture store.

"So perhaps Billy Corgan is I don’t know, off his alternative rocker,” Cooper commented on his show, Anderson 360. “but I think maybe there’s more to this, maybe he’s being ironic, or maybe when the cool rock stars start doing less rock starry things, it kind of makes us face our own morality."

Corgan has responded in full rock star mode, first attacking Anderson on Twitter, writing "Sorry to disappoint, but when I’m not raising cain for a great organization like @PAWSchicago, I’m still making REAL music. I realize you’re too busy being a globalist shill to know the difference, but there are those of us who do as we like.”

Money from the sales of the obscene tee shirts goes to charity.
