The death of Moammar Gadhafi set off a string of celebrations throughout Libya, concerns among the international community ... and absurd comments on Twitter.
An instant, harmless classic: “Lunch with Gadhafi, cancelled.” - Steve Martin.
On Saturday, though, actor Orlando Jones went in a different direction:
“Libyan Rebels kill Gaddafi, if American liberals want respect they better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin (:” wrote the star ... drawing a harsh rebuke.
Palin has not responded on Twitter to Jones’ remarks, but supporters have.
An account called Tennessee4Palin (@TN4P) wrote, “Why does @TheOrlandoJones think it’s funny to call for Sarah Palin to be murdered? #palin #liberaltolerance”
Jones' response, “No I don’t. I think it’s funny you are so upset about my inane tweet.”
Another user then tweeted at him, “You are obviously a big fat moron. How about someone talked about killing your mother or sister. Is that Funny-ha, ha?”
Jones' response to that one: “Yay! Name calling. I’m a moron that’s working on the big and fat part. Maybe you could buy me food & complete the trifecta (:”
What do you think? Did Orlando Jones go too far?
He admits he was "inane," yes, but telling people to KILL her? Really? And likening Palin to Gadhafi ... is that any different than Hank Williams' Obama-Hitler comparison?
