The left is always respectful and courteous to political figures on the right, and Scott Baio is finding out that peaceful liberals only want the evil right to return the favor (pause for laughter).
From Fox News:
Former â€œHappy Daysâ€ star Scott Baio claims he has been barraged with death threats and accused of being a racist after posting an unflattering photo of Michelle Obama on Twitter along with the caption â€œWOW He wakes up to this every morning.â€
Outraged users reportedly responded with angry Tweets such as â€œScott Baio should be PUT DOWN and someone will PUT YOU DOWN.YOU; your WIFE and KID.” Another Tweeter even went as far as to alter an image of Baioâ€™s young child with the caption â€œthis is what Scott Baio wakes up [to].” That photo has since been removed.
The controversy began after Baio had been Tweeting support for Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown Wednesday. He then decided to post the photo of Obama, before insisting it was all intended to be good fun.
The Baio Twitter post in question is here.
Hey Scott, if you want to get out of hot water with the Hollywood left, just start mercilessly bashing Sarah Palin. Jennifer Lopez can do it and everybody in Hollywood laughs. Either that or become a liberal Democrat and attain a high position in Congress — then you can insult not only the Obamas, but the entire black community all you want and all will be forgiven.
Baio makes the mistake of defending himself on his Twitter page with the “I’m not racist because some of my best friends are black” line. Not necessary. All he needed to do was to create a post called “advice for my critics” over a picture of himself pointing to the words on his wife’s shirt.
