Scott Baio caused a stir on Twitter after posting a photo of Michelle Obama and being flat-out bombarded with angry replies from fans and enemies alike.
Some called the actor – who has often used his Twitter page to speak out about his Republican beliefs – an “a$$hole” and many said his post was racist.
Racist? Doubtful. In truth, it was just a tasteless joke.
Scott wrote “He [Barack] wakes up to this every day” combined with a really unflattering photo. People quickly jumped on him from all angles for this.

Michelle Obama’s fans have lashed out at Scott Baio.
Baio insisted the post was just a joke, however, and shared screen caps of several death threats he received. That may be a little extreme as well, people.
“Easy to find your house Scottie boy and finish you,” one commenter wrote while another threatened to harm his wife and family. Wow, take a joke much?
While calling the First Lady ugly and mocking the appearance of Michelle Obama pictures isn’t likely to win friends, it also doesn’t warrant death threats.
This isn’t the first time an unflattering Michelle pic has made news. Google issued a statement in November with regard to an offensive image search result.
