In today’s culture of politically correct hypersensitivity, it seems there is still one religion that society has deemed appropriate to mock.
On Friday, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville posted, and then removed, a particularly insulting and offensive picture on social media that showed her in a nativity scene squatting over a statue of the baby Jesus as if she had given birth.
“Never forget the reason for the season #sweetchildomine #gunsnroses #sandiego #oldtown,” Glanville, 44, wrote in the caption.
Glanville removed the photo from her Instagram after a ton of backlash but her “apology” on Twitter left a lot to be desired, and fans let her have it again.
People need to chill the fuck out and take a joke.

@BrandiGlanville The birth of my saviour isn’t a joke. Not funny at all. I am a Catholic and I didn’t find anything about this funny. IMO

@BrandiGlanville are you kidding? Take responsibility for what you disgracefully did.

@BrandiGlanville every time you do something disgusting or vile, you say it’s a joke. Actually, YOU’RE the joke.

@BrandiGlanville It wasn’t a joke B. You insulted a lot of Christians that find it holy.

A “Hipster Nativity Set,” complete with the three wise men” on Segways and Joseph taking a selfie with Jesus and Mary, kicked off the 2016 season, but this isn’t the first year the mocking has been so open.
Last year Texas Gov. Greg Abbott demanded a faux nativity scene from the Freedom From Religion Foundation be removed from the state capital.

In 2013 a California church replaced the baby Jesus in the scene with a bloodied Trayvon Martin.
