A listener texted James O'Brien's to criticise him but James gave a powerful defence of his show in response.
Alfie texted: "If you want to tone the language down, listen to a recording of your own show.
You come across as patronising, sarcastic and narcissistic. It's really tedious and boring."
James O'Brien responded: "Mate, obviously I'd struggle to pay my mortgage but if we could make it all just patronising and sarcastic or tedious and boring, we'd be great."
He added: "Jo Cox wouldn't be dead. Gina Miller wouldn't be reporting today that she gets abuse in the street when she's with her children."
He then said: "These are all the opposite of patronising, sarcastic and tedious and boring.
I do listen back to my own show, Alfie, I suspect you need to invest in some Otex."
