Chad Ochocinco, Glenn Beck Friends? NFL Star, Radio Host Tweet At Each Other

It looks like Chad Ochocinco has made a new friend... and his name is Glenn Beck!

On Saturday, the star receiver tweeted that he has started to read Beck's new book called Broke and said his views on political and economical issues are "epic."

Ochocinco received an enormous negative backlash for his tweet as Beck-haters lashed out and ripped him for being a fan.

Although he tweeted that he was not a conservative, that didn't stop the radio host from chiming in on Monday and tweeted that he would love to talk with Ochocinco on his show.

"Hey @ochocinco -thx for not listening to the haters & having an open mind. Love to talk w/ you on radio about what you agreed/disagreed with," Beck tweeted.

"Whenever you're ready," Ochocinco replied.

We can only hope that the Cincinnati Bengal actually goes on Beck's show because that would truly be epic!
