FBI Investigates Scott Baio Death Threats After Crack About First Lady Michelle Obama
Happy Days hasbeen Scott Baio called the First Lady ugly — now he’s calling the FBI after he allegedly received a series of online threats and verbal ass-razzings from angry Tweeters.
Funny how the shoe’s always tighter on the other foot…..
Baio came under fire after he posted an unflattering picture of First Lady Michelle Obama on his Twitter.com page on Wednesday, along with a caption which read: “Wow. He (U.S. President Barack Obama) wakes up to this every morning.”
The post attracted a slew of negative comments and accusations of racism from his followers. Baio, for his part, insists his message was taken the wrong way.
“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,” he wrote.
“One bad picture of a woman & everyone wants to bash me?” the star of VH1′s Scott Baio….45 & Counting wrote. “If it had been of Palin ppl would have prob cheered. I am NOT making fun of any1.”
After the negative comments turned threatening, Baio informed his followers that he had contacted authorities over the nasty posts: “PLEASE NOTE: The FBI has been contacted & we have a file number for the threats, along with Twitter support. Thx (thanks).”
I’m not sure about the racism claims. After all, it is an unflattering photo of the otherwise beautiful Mrs. O. However, if you’re going to dish it out, you have to know how to take it. Does Scott really need to run crying to the Feds because he got roasted on Twitter?
