Lizz Winstead: Oklahoma Tornado Ordered to Target Conservatives!

by at . Comments

Lizz Winstead, the co-creator of The Daily Show, is facing serious criticism after joking that Monday's Oklahoma tornado was sent to target conservatives.

At least 24 people were killed by the massive storm.

Around 4:30 p.m. yesterday, with the twister moving in, Winstead tweeted: "This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives."

The tweet has since been deleted, but not before it sparked major controversy, along with her two other quips about the deadly weather event.

"How long has Obama known about this Tornado," Winstead joked re: the IRS and AP scandals, along with "Tornado just bumped me from MSNBC. #Benghazi"

Hours later, Winstead apologized for her poor taste.

"Made a political joke, Twas before devastation revealed. In hindsight, had I understood, I would have refrained. Beyond sorry. #LetMeHaveIt" she tweeted.

Winstead continued to try and make amends, telling critics "it's worth giving me sh--. I was an idiot" and calling her tweet, "Bad joke. Bad timing. Just bad."

Glenn Beck, of all people, came to her defense:

"Leave lizz winstead alone. Clearly bad joke. But how many of us has made a joke we wished we could take back? She has to feel awful. #castfirststone"

Winstead then proceeded to tweet multiple ways to donate to tornado relief, which is a nice way to make amends ... but seriously, is nothing sacred?!

A typical liberal Obama loving, America hating piece of crap she is. It is so easy to hate Obama voters and it will never end. This is what they think of the Children of America.

I cannot believe that anyone would be making jokes about tornadoes. I happen to live in Oklahoma. I have seen the devastation firsthand. Thank God that where I live didn't get hit with one. My heart and prayers go out to those who were affected by those that hit yesterday and Sunday. People who make jokes about disasters are uncouth idiots. Any person that's been through hell like that of a tornado, hurricane, the Boston marathon bombing, etc. has the right to be sensitive about jokes being made at their expense. She should have kept her mouth shut and she needs to be punished.

I think she should be fired just like the idiot she is. So busy to hate on Obama got caught in a jam. Penalty fire her. And the who speaks up for her. Anyone else would be demanding she gets fired. I want her out.
