Scott Baio Gets Death Threats on Twitter After Posting Michelle Obama Joke (H/T LuciusSeptimius).
After the former Charles in Charge star, 48, posted an unflattering photo of Michelle Obama on his Twitter page, he was bombarded with angry replies from fans and enemies alike. … Some called the actor – who has often used his Twitter page to speak out about his Republican beliefs – an “asshole” and many said his post was racist.
That’s interesting for a few reasons. First, it shows the thin-skinned “tolerance” of the leftist brownshirts (who also threatened his family); and second, the writer of that article was compelled to include “Check out (flattering!) photos of Michelle Obama’s style” in the middle of the article, presumably for “balance” – the sort of “balance” that only gets added to cancel out negative impressions of liberals. It’s also interesting that Baio managed to raise this much ire without ever using the word “wookiee”, which SOB (some other bloggers) insists is even more racist than the N-word because “Chewbacca was a villain on Star Wars, so using that term to insult anyone is racist.” Really. Take that, “Darth Cheney”!
