Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) recently presented Fox News' Sean Hannity with an award that has left Twitter users reeling.

According to HuffPost, Hannity received the “Champion for Freedom” award which Scott, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, claims is an honor for individuals who prioritize the importance of freedom.

Upon receiving the award, Hannity reacted by saying, “Oh my God, wow" as he was the "colander-like bowl shape" trophy, per the news outlet.

As Fox News footage of the award presentation began circulating on social media, Twitter users focused on the odd award. "Rick Scott just gave Hannity ... a little bowl? That's some sort of Republican freedom award?" one user tweeted.

"The chairman of the Republican Senate Committee just gave Sean Hannity a republican senate committee award on TV and I gotta be honest, it's really making me start to question Sean Hannity and fox news' objectivity," another Twitter user added.

Others also noted that the award bowl looks similar to one Scott previously gave to former President Donald Trump.

With a photo of Scott gifting Trump with a similar bowl, another user tweeted, "Does Rick Scott own a little silver bowl company or something?"
