*In reaction to the killing of Muammar Gaddafi, actor Orlando Jones took to Twitter over the weekend to share his thoughts, tweeting: “Libyan Rebels kill Gaddafi, if American liberals want respect they better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin.”
The tweet didn’t get much notice beyond a few followers who responded, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Though a few conservatives began to blog about it on Monday.
“Can we enjoy his role as Steve the Magazine Salesman in Office Space ever again?” a blogger at Big Hollywood asks.
One of the actor’s Twitter followers tweeted back to Jones: “You are obviously a big fat moron. How about if someone talked about killing your mother or sister. Is that Funny-ha, ha?”
That tweet elicited a few responses from Jones: “Yay! Name calling. I’m a moron that’s working on the big and fat part. Maybe you could buy me food & complete the trifecta.”
And: “Honestly making a joke about killing my mother could be very funny. Depends on the joke.”
Another conversation went back and forth before Jones tweeted: “Actually, I don’t think it’s just a joke is an apropo response. If my tweets are so upsetting to you please do not read them.”
