Why, you ask? Because on his Twitter page.
(Um, is there any such thing as a “flattering” Michelle Obama photo?)
Scott Baio, who supported Scott Brown in Massachusetts, received death threats this week after he posted an unflattering photo of Michelle Obama on twitter. FOX News reported, via FOX Nation:
Former “Happy Days” 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 “WOW He wakes up to this every morning.”
Outraged users reportedly responded with angry Tweets such as “Scott 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 Baio’s young child with the caption “this is what Scott Baio wakes up [to].” That photo has since been removed.
Now people, we all need to take a deep breath and relax here. The man posted a photo of the First Lady. It wasn’t even photoshopped. Posting a photo of that woman should not be grounds for death threats . . . Zapped! should probably be grounds for death threats.
If you want to see the photo Baio posted, it’s below the fold.
Egads! That’s a woman?
