After the Denver Broncos lost to the Buffalo Bills on Christmas Eve, Maher tweeted, “Wow, Jesus just f***ked #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler ‘Hey, Buffalo’s killing them.” That tweet triggered a firestorm of criticism from Christians and conservatives alike, and now some are calling for the boycott of HBO.
Following Maher’s tweet, Fox Business’ “Follow the Money” host Eric Bolling lashed out at Maher via twitter saying, ”Bill Maher is disgusting vile trash. I can’t even repeat what he just tweeted about Tebow..on Christmas Eve. #straighttohellBill.”
This isn’t the first that people have taken issue with Maher’s comments. ABC cancelled the comedian’s show Politically Correct after the comments he made about the 9/11 hijackers. And there were talks of boycotting HBO in 2008 when Maher made some disparaging remarks about Pope Benedict and the Catholic church.
So what do you think about his comments? Did he cross the line with his Tebow comments?
