Conservative Scott Baio (Actor) Receives Death Threats Over Michelle Obama Photo On Twitter

Scott Baio Receives Death Threats Over Michelle Obama 'Joke'

By Hollie McKay

Scott Baio, who supported Scott Brown in Massachusetts, received death threats this week after he posted an unflattering photo of Michelle Obama on twitter.

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.”

HERE is Scott's Tweeter Page...his main page

And this is his page where the photo of Michelle Obama is located

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.

The controversy began after Baio had been Tweeting support for Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown Wednesday. He then decided to post the photo of Obama, before insisting it was all intended to be good fun.

“For New followers: I POST A LOT OF JOKES WITH PICS. They are JUST that, a joke. NOT targeting anyone. Laughter IS the best medicine.”

The actor was also quick to defend himself from accusations that he was racist.

“I’m NOT racist for posting a pic of M.O. My WIFE’S BEST FRD IS BLACK, HELLO,” he Tweeted. “If YOU are born in AMERICA, U ARE AN AMERICAN. I don’t insist on being called Italian-American. Therefore Black Amer are not Afr-Amer. Or that would mean people (white or black) born in Africa would be called African-Africans … Just a thought to think about… If I’m racist, don’t think I would have Directed shows like The Parkers & The Wayans Bros. or worked 41 eps w/ Victoria Rowell on D.Murder.”
Baio then attempted to demonstrate his point of double standards further by reminding followers that just this week Jennifer Lopez insulted Sarah Palin.

“HATRED or RACIST??- Jennifer Lopez Calls Sarah Palin a Crazy B*tch on George Lopez Show!!!!," he posted. Lopez used the description "la cabrona," which is Spanish slang for “b**tch.”

Baio also said the threats had been reported to the FBI.


Scott Baio Gets Death Threats on Twitter After Posting Michelle Obama Joke

US Magazine

After the former Charles in Charge star, 48, posted an unflattering photo of Michelle Obama on his Twitter page, he was 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.

Baio, however, insisted the post was just a joke and shared screenshots of several death threats he received.

"Easy to find your house Scottie boy and finish you," one commenter wrote while another threatened to harm his wife and family.

Below, take a look at the drama as it unfolded from start to finish -- and caused his followers to skyrocket to nearly 5,000 people -- on Baio's Twitter page:

-I did NOT alter that picture. Stop bashing my Charity just because I post an unflattering pic of a woman. Grow up ppl, have some humor.

-Hello, I'm Scott Baio & if you post ANY LIBS picture on Twitter, they will try to bury you. Because their skin is VERY thin.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Good grief, it is NOT a photo shop picture doctored up. Heck we have all seen that photo a million times even on TV. That is what Michelle Obama's photo looks like, I think it was during the campaign last year.

Obama worshipers are mentally unbalanced.

I think the photo flatters the Wookie when in truth she is much uglier. Or as they say, she'd make a turd look good. heh heh!

Awww...this is much ado about nothing, they left is so dysfunctional they think Hellen Thomas is a babe. Their leader is corrupt, unaccomplished and also dysfunctional, his wife looks like the female version of 'Buckwheat' with Chic-o-lets for teeth.

After the way the treated Laura Bush I'm suppose to be offended with Scott Baio's comment, Hell it would be scary to wake up with that every morning. It would be a nightmare come true... or "I'm married to a waitress and I don't even know her name."

Funny how it's okay for them to be mean and hateful and spiteful, but if a conservative cracks a joke, it's racist! Everyone I know says they ought to push Michelle's face into cookie dough and make gorilla cookies! I didn't need my family to tell me I'm beautiful because I know I am both inside and out.

If they only want "pretty" pictures of MamaBama there would be no pictures. If she doesn't like people seeing her face she can put a bag over her head.

I can't find your e-mail address, so I'm e-mailing you this way. Remember your November 2009 posting about Obama refusing to salute?

The reason President Obama is not saluting in the photo is because at the moment the photo in question was taken, the US Air Force band was playing "Hail to the Chief" -- so, if Obama had saluted at that moment, he would have been saluting himself!

The CSPAN video is proof. Skip to the 11:30 mark and you'll see that what I'm saying is correct.

By the way, the photo in question was taken at Arlington National Cemetery on 25 May 2009, not at Ft. Hood, Texas, on 11 November 2009, as some claim.

The damned woman looks like an enraged Wookie, apologies to Wookies everywhere...

Ah yes the ever-tolerant left, making death threats for showing an unflattering picture of their messiah’s wife. Almost like a certain middle eastern based death cult who rioted and made death threats after an unflattering cartoon of their prophet. The similarities are uncanny.

Thank you for your comments.
I agree Lynn, it is a total double
standard again from the left.
