Isn't his right to post that protected under the First Amendment?

Why do people get so bent out of shape about the truth?

You have the right to post whatever the fvck you want. Just know you're liable to be reprimanded for it. We've been over this.

You have to have the "CORRECT" opinion if you are famous.

You can have an opinion.  However, if you are cashing a paycheck from someone then your opinion cannot run contrary to any of their beliefs.

He is not getting arrested or charged for criminal activity,  so his first amendment right was not violated.  I'm shocked at the number of people who don't understand this.

That said, it was a relatively tame tweet and I don't think he should be fired.

Why do people get so bent out of shape about the truth?

a)  Yep its his right.  And he posted it.  YOu can post and say whatever you want but you are not free from the consequences.  He can't be put in jail for it.  That would be a violation of the 1st amendment

b)  the numbers are not true and highly misleading at best.
Turd - I have never really bought into the genius that is Turd.  I know he is well loved and considered a great poster.  His brand of humor just doesn't do it for me.

Every time what happens?    Someone posts a meme that makes a valid point?    When else has that happened?

I'm going to apply that next time some gay wedding people bitch about a bakery that didn't want to make them a wedding cake with two grooms on it - "But, but, my gay rights!"   I'm gonna reply "Hey, nobody is arresting you or charging you with criminal activiy for having a gay wedding."
