Is a joke worth getting this worked up over?

'A grand wizard like you Scott Baio should be put down and someone will put you down. You, your wife and kid'

..thats what a twitterer wrote amoung other angry twitter comments.

Was the joke really that big of a deal?

  • I'm sure if someone posted a pic like that of Hillary (and there are TONS of them) along with that comment about Bill, they would not be getting death threats over it and called a racist. So I guess that answers where the real racists are...

  • I swear, you can't make a single joke about this president without being called a racist. Presidents and their wives have been made fun of for decades. Get over it people.

  • You are always the first to line up for the fainting couch. I'm sure you say much worse than Scott Baio ever would.

  • Posting the picture was rude and childish, but DEATH THREATS over it is just stupid. The more attention these idiots call to it, the more people will rush to see it and find out what all the commotion is about. NO it's not racist, not everything unflattering about the Obama's is racist. People have been making comments about presidents and their families forever, it's just Obama's turn. I don't see nearly as much unflattering publicity about him as I did "W"--not that there's as much opportunity.... (Bush was just so easy it was almost pitiful)

  • I guarantee that if he had posted an unflattering picture of Palin with some kind of comment like that, no one would be upset and people would be laughing. Why is there such a double standard. It was a JOKE. It was not rude or childish.
