(LOS ANGELES) -- Dominic Monaghan, who starred in the Lord of the Rings films and later on Lost, had some choice of words about his one-time co-star Matthew Fox during a Twitter chat Monday.
When a fan asked Monaghan to try to get Fox to join Twitter, Monaghan bluntly answered, "He beats women. No Thanks."
In August 2011, an allegedly drunk Fox was accused of repeatedly punching a female shuttle bus driver in an Ohio scuffle that led the victim to sue him for injuries sustained.
The Twitter fan referenced this incident, saying to Monaghan, "I KNOW IT WAS WRONG BUT WHAT?! WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE GOOD TIMES YOU HAD TOGETHER?!"
But the actor responded by posting, "how do you know we ever did?you don't know either of us.he beats women.not isolated incidents.often..."
When the Fox fan said the actor should sue Monaghan, the actor posted, "It's very difficult to sue someone for speaking the truth."
Earlier this month, Fox was arrested on a DUI charge in Oregon.
