Armstrong Williams, a close friend of Ben Carson, said the Housing and Urban Development secretary is "deeply disappointed" by a HUD official labeling journalist April Ryan "Miss Piggy."

Williams' comments came in a tweet on Thursday morning.

His Twitter posting followed a now-deleted tweet by Lynne Patton, who heads a HUD regional office, according to the Washington Examiner. The website identified Patton as a former event planner for the Trump family.

Aside from calling Ryan, who works for the American Urban Radio Networks, "Miss Piggy," Patton also included the hashtag "BankruptBlogger" in her deleted tweet, according to the Daily News in New York.

But about an hour after posting the comments, Patton came back with another tweet.

Meanwhile, Ryan fired back at Patton calling her a "washed-up wedding planner."
