Is Scott Baio trying to get his name out there, again?
The one-time teen heart-throb posted a picture of Michelle Obama, with “WOW He wakes up to this every morning, posted under it, on his Twitter page. Now, he is getting bombarded with angry replies and even death threats!
Baio says it was just a joke and then posted screenshots of several death threats he received and pictures of his wife’s best friend, who is black (as Baio puts it).
And Baio’s response? Here’s what he has Twittered:
“One bad picture of a woman & everyone wants to bash me? If it had been of Palin ppl would have prob. cheered. I am NOT making fun of any1”
“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.”
“How many libs will buy (or look at in the store) the National Enquirer this week. FYI THAT EXACT PIC IS IN IT… (& other mags) BOO HOO”
“People need to relax and laugh a bit. Life is too short no matter what party you are with. A joke is just that, a joke.”
“REPORT @timafi TO @caroline. THIS PERSON IS THREATENING MY LIFE & NOT F**KING COOL. PLZ REPORT”
“I’m NOT racist for posting a pic of M.O. My WIFE’S BEST FRD IS BLACK,HELLO”
“Do I look like I’m racist? This is Renee’s BEST frd. STOP USING THE RACE CARD!!!”
“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.”
“PLEASE NOTE: The FBI has been contacted & we have a file number for the threats, along with twitter support. Thx”
