Cenk Uygur’s classy curse-laden Christmas message: F*ck Bill O’Reilly!

http://twitter.com/#!/DJTEN23/status/415684245625925632

Most people spend Christmas Eve with their families, or maybe watching charming holiday movies and shows on television. But bitter bottom-dwellers like “Young Turk” Cenk Uygur go online to tweet vile curse words to Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

http://twitter.com/#!/cenkuygur/status/415683993837649920

But he wasn’t done there. He had to mock people celebrating Christmas too:

http://twitter.com/#!/cenkuygur/status/415709123213156352

How is it exactly that Bill O’Reilly ruined his Christmas? Perhaps by ignoring his ridiculous attempts to ride O’Reilly’s coattails.

‘Huh?’ Guess which convicted rapist is turning heads at the Golden Globes [photos, Vine]

Looks like we’re not the only ones wondering what the troubled ex-boxer and convicted rapist is doing at the glamorous awards show tonight. He’s banned from the UK because of his criminal record. But Tinseltown’s got the red carpet rolled out.

Glenn Beck to Gov. Cuomo: ‘If we are not welcome, we will leave’

http://twitter.com/#!/glennbeck/status/425396652615020545

Glenn Beck has written a lengthy open letter to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in response to Cuomo’s statement Friday that “extremist conservatives” (such as right-to-lifers) have no place in the state. In short, Beck says that “if we are not welcome, we will leave.”

It’s no empty threat. Beck says he employes 200 people in the state of New York though Mercury Radio Arts, The Blaze and his Mercury One nonprofit. “Our organization creates jobs for hundreds of people in your state, and provides news, opinion, entertainment and a helping hand for millions of people across this country,” Beck writes. “Are our contributions, tax dollars, and genuine goodness as citizens not welcome here? We respectfully request an answer on whether there are two classes of citizens.”

That’s ‘Raycist’! Note to Ronan Farrow, MSNBC: ‘Ray LaHood is NOT dead’ [pics]

http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/450685527046750209

MSNBC is on a roll!

During today’s edition of “Ronan Farrow Daily,” our favorite Cronkite Award winner reported that Ray Hutchison, husband of former Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, passed away. Unfortunately, MSNBC’s graphics department apparently thinks that when you’ve seen one Ray, you’ve seen ‘em all:

http://twitter.com/#!/jbendery/status/450684377576779776

Oof.

http://twitter.com/#!/SteveScully/status/450684063355912192

Good question. LaHood, you see, is very much alive:

http://twitter.com/#!/samsteinhp/status/450687341150347265

So, how does something like this happen? Here’s one possible scenario:

http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/450685030571212800

That actually sounds like something MSNBC’s clowns would do. Ineptitude is the name of the game over there.

http://twitter.com/#!/brianwperry/status/450688119227301889

Ha!

Oh well. MSNBC can at least hope for a silver lining:

http://twitter.com/#!/TheDCVince/status/450685482956251136

Farrow needs all the help he can get.

The 2013 Twitchys: Top 20 deleted tweets of the year

twitchys 2013

When politicians, journalists, and celebrities write ill-considered tweets, they often reach for the “delete” button as quickly as they can, hoping to erase the evidence of their foolishness before anyone notices. Unfortunately for them — but fortunately for you! — that trick hardly ever works. Thus, we present the twenty best deleted tweet events of 2013!

Note to Twitchy app users: In order to see all of the deleted tweets, you may need to load the post in your browser.

20. In the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal, actress Kirstie Alley said that white people like to murder black people. Or something.

kirstiealley

“We”? Was Kirstie admitting to some sort of crime? Of course not, but those are the kinds of mistakes one can make when in a hurry to jump aboard a bandwagon.

19. Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx recently called “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson a racist, homophobic “a-hole.” We pointed out the time the Mötley Crüe bassist used the N-word. Oh, and the time he hurled an anti-gay slur. We’re generous like that.  After we published our post, sneaky Sixx quietly deleted his tweets.

http://twitter.com/#!/NikkiSixx/status/413924928258191360
http://twitter.com/#!/NikkiSixx/status/413925720398651392

And the award goes to …

http://twitter.com/#!/NikkiSixx/status/413930001549905920

Now Sixx is singing a new tune.

18. CBS News’ White House correspondent Major Garrett is not f-ing kidding about your shirty business. In a rare hat trick of deleted tweet, funny typo, and accidental tweeting of DM, Garrett showed Twitter he’s not to be messed with!

http://twitter.com/#!/MajorCBS/status/301006957173673984

17. Whenever there’s an attack on American soil, if there’s any question about the intentions of the attacker, you can be assured that lefties will scramble all over themselves to blame conservatives, and if you’re lucky, the Tea Party. But usually it’s not a U.S. Forest Service PR rep!

http://twitter.com/#!/ForestInsider/status/323927693114609665

You would think that the “Director of Public Affairs for the Southern Region of the U.S. Forest Service” might be more careful about her relations with the public. But you would be wrong.

16. Graeme Zielinski, communications director for the Wisconsin Democratic Party, has a history of making sensational claims about Gov. Scott Walker. (Correction: He is the former communications director for the Wisconsin Democratic Party.) Last year, he suggested that Walker defended criminals who commit “boy rape.” This year, he took it a step further, making a comparison between the Republican Governor and serial killer/cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer:

http://twitter.com/#!/gjzielinski/status/307527092168433664

It was a tough call, but the honor goes to this one:

http://twitter.com/#!/gjzielinski/status/307529620037713920

15. Like a lot of liberals, the Democratic mayor of New Jersey’s fourth-largest city believes that the problems with HealthCare.gov were caused by Republican shenanigans:

http://twitter.com/#!/MayorBollwage/status/391691820113358849

By the way, what the heck is “robot calling”?

14. Fox News anchor Shepard Smith’s people “confirmed” that shots were fired outside the White House when the real story was that some idiot was throwing firecrackers.

http://twitter.com/#!/ComradeArthur/status/379740878912229376

13. “Real journalists” really wanted the story of the Sandy Hook father who was “heckled” by gun rights supporters to be true, even though it definitely was not. Even some lefty outlets like Slate admitted they blew the story. CNN’s Anderson Cooper must have gotten the memo just before he deleted this tweet:

shouted-down

12. Van Jones wants you to know that Fox News is “PATHETIC.” Unfortunately for him, the Photoshop that “proved” his point was a fake.

van-jones-fox-photoshop

11. A former Afghanistan Ambassador falsely accused U.S. soldiers of killing the last lion in Kunar province. Problem is, there are no lions in the wild in Afghanistan, and the photo is fake.

http://twitter.com/#!/AmbassadorJawad/status/415815989725765632

lion-killed

10. Agence France-Presse’s Emal Haidary definitely wasn’t the only one who tweeted out a bogus story about Sarah Palin arriving in South Korea for Nelson Mandela’s funeral, but he may have been the only professional journalist to do so.

She is more confused than I, lools,
Sarah Palin Arrives in South Korea for Mandela Memorial
dailycurrant.com/2013/12/10/sar…— Emal Haidary (@menh0) December 11, 2013

9. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour wished human rights abuser Robert Mugabe a happy birthday:

http://twitter.com/#!/camanpour/status/304707026586570752

How sweet! After deleting her celebratory tweet, and replacing with a more benign recognition of the milestone, she tried to act as if she had been ironically tweeting. Then why delete it, Alanis Morissette?

8. When “Fast and Furious” movie star Paul Walker died last month, Jezebel editor Erin Ryan took the occasion to show everyone just how classy she can be:

http://twitter.com/#!/morninggloria/status/406984650503245824

After doubling down on her hatred and blaming conservatives, she deleted the tweet. But not before we took notice.

7. Given the trash that flows freely out of Sarah Silverman’s gutter mind without apology, it took a lot for her to top herself and tweet something so awful that she was forced to delete it. Oh, here it is:

http://twitter.com/#!/SarahKSilverman/status/350027506272829440

Actually, Gov. Perry had found the word offensive and painted over the epithet. After deleting the three separate times she deceptively insulted Perry, Silverman tried to explain it away by saying the tweets were too negative. That hasn’t stopped her before.

After her pitiful walkback, she was spanked for losing her ongoing fight for laughs.

6. Pastor and televangelist Joel Osteen usually tweets benign inspirational Christian messages, which made this deleted tweet the “best unintentionally awesome tweet ever”:

http://twitter.com/#!/DRichInTheHouse/status/396068749280673792

Either Osteen was radically changing his stance on lust, or he didn’t quite see all the possible hilarious interpretations of his well-meaning message. Since he deleted it, we imagine it was the latter.

5. What’s a list of worst tweeters without the man, the myth, the toupee, the one and only (thank God) Donald Trump? In one little tweet, the Donald embarrassed organizers who invited him to speak at CPAC when he ridiculously announced that Ashley Judd was “going to be a great candidate” for U.S. Senate:

http://twitter.com/#!/realDonaldTrump/status/311471076972580864

He deleted the tweet, and covered by trying to blame Karl Rove. Judd decided not to run, but unfortunately The Donald continues to tweet.

4. We’re not sure what we did to have Britain dump their useless political commentators on our shores, but it sure isn’t helping international relations to have Piers Morgan make bogus claims to satisfy his gun-grabbing gluttony:

http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/379744807167340544

Musket is picking up a sweet 2013 Twitchy award for this one:

http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/379749140734828545

Morgan was just salivating at the chance to to blame the AR-15 for the Washington Navy Yard shooting, but he had to delete his tweets after he learned that the accused shooter didn’t use an AR-15. Oddly, this tweet is still live:

http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/379718609792430080

3. Remember when Rolling Stone magazine insulted everyone by featuring a rock ‘n roll cover of Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tzarnaev? Its senior editor thought he’d defuse the situation by making an obscene joke to make light of the furor. Didn’t work:

http://twitter.com/#!/jpodhoretz/status/357657438889062400

He deleted the tweet and apologized for the joke, but not for the offensive cover that imagined Tzarnaev as a rock star.

2. Coming in at number two of the top deleted tweets of 2013 is the ridiculously obscene insult blithely tweeted by a foul-mouthed staffer at The Onion against the 9-year-old actress Quvenzhané Wallis:

http://twitter.com/#!/TheOnion/status/305900584278556672

Wow. You like to be edgy, Onion, but you pirouetted right over the edge on that one, and Twitter was not amused!

1. And now, the number one deleted tweet of 2013 honor goes to … Geraldo “Capone Vault” Rivera! Long before Barack Obama made the selfie devoid of all coolness, Geraldo sent a selfie via Tweet that “launched a thousand breakfasts”:

http://twitter.com/#!/Bourdain/status/358957639469776896

With just one press of the send button, Geraldo made an entire internet turn in revulsion, and forever lose its innocence. Truly, we will never be the same thanks to the terrible tweeting of that stomach-turning selfie on that day that will live in tweetfamy.

If your favorite deleted tweet didn’t score a Twitchy award, stay tuned. More awards are on the way.

‘EPIC!’ Candace Cameron Bure, Danica McKellar ‘torture’ Jason Hervey [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/danicamckellar/status/443852741627355136

Oh my. D.J. Tanner vs. Winnie Cooper! Twitchy favorite Candace Cameron Bure, who played DJ Tanner on “Full House,” is on the cast of the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.” And so is Danica McKellar, who played the much-loved Winnie Cooper on “The Wonder Years.”

http://twitter.com/#!/kenziekate2/status/443977294865264640

We are excited too! “The Wonder Years” actor Jason Hervey is excited as well … yet tortured. Why?

http://twitter.com/#!/JasonHervey/status/443931694244966400

Well, the ladies have a fix to end the torture, Jason.

http://twitter.com/#!/danicamckellar/status/443933450538872833

Nice!

This Twitter user is trying to figure out who will win:

http://twitter.com/#!/S0DAP0PS/status/443966776817094656

You’d win the prize for remembering weird sitcom factoids, sir!

One thing is clear: ABC is the big winner here. A DJ Tanner vs. Winnie Cooper face-off is drawing in potential viewers.

http://twitter.com/#!/jaymarsh30/status/443903447013007360
http://twitter.com/#!/TheReal_BigJohn/status/443965933460021248

Indeed.

But what about Jason Hervey’s brother on “The Wonder Years”? What is Fred Savage thinking?

http://twitter.com/#!/EmmyJJ/status/443974656198852608

Ha!

‘Why is Harry Connick Jr. so orange?’ ‘Idol’ judge responds to the buzz [pics]

http://twitter.com/#!/ittybittybaker2/status/423665146113048576

Harry Connick Jr. has been a welcome addition to the new season of “American Idol.”

http://twitter.com/#!/bccohan/status/423838969206669312

Don’t get us wrong — he looks great. The ladies have spoken:

http://twitter.com/#!/bccohan/status/423995277004267520

But Twitter has been buzzing about what looks like bad makeup or a little too much self-tanner.
