1980s sitcom actor Scott Baio
(who considers himself a 'Conservative
' and a Constitutionalist
'), along with his wife, has sparked an awkward battle
with the website Jezebel. "Earlier this month, Mr. Charles in Charge released unto the interwebs a right-leaning tweet
about finishing his taxes. Amused, the good ladies over at Jezebel included his missive in their daily roundup
of ridiculous things celebrities say (in 140 characters or less). So far, so good, right? Wrong. You see, Jezebel did not include all the
positive messages Baio sent out, and that, it appears, caused an irreparable rift in the Facebook-Twitter continuum. Enter wife Renee Baio
this measured, much-researched and thought-provoking response
on her Facebook page:
'F**kYOU Jezebel.com web rag!!!!! You bunch of FAR LEFT Lesbian shitasses!!!!!!! No wonder you're all lesbos because what man in his right mind could put up with your cuntness? Scott Baio has more class in his piss than all of you all!!!'
Not one to leave his wife to fight his battles, Baio classed
it up on his Twitter page as well.
"Let's see if web-rag jezebel.com will post my Twt abt schools,service ppl, spec.needs kids & animal abuse? They sound like hypocrites 2 me!"
Charges of racism, mysogyny, homphobia and other online nasty weirdness have followed.
