WARNING! Very offensive language in video.
It’s only misogynistic if a Republican does it.
Actor Michael Rapaport went on an obscenity-laced Twitter rant on Sunday night in which he berated Fox News’ Laura Ingraham for her recent feud with basketball players LeBron James and Kevin Durant.
The “War at Home” star prefaced his rant by warning that his remarks would “offend some women.”
“I’m apologizing in advance. I know this is gonna offend some women, but I had to do it.”
He went on to insult the news host’s physical appearance and mock her with several white stereotypes.
“This is for Laura Ingraham, the cock-eyed Fox News commentator with the Bobby Brown jaw who said that KD and LeBron James should just ‘shut up and dribble.’ No, cluckhead. You shut up and dribble deez nuts b—h.
“You mayonnaise-eating, melba toast no seasoning on your chicken cracker. Your butt is so flat that when you stand up you could see your entire a—le. I’m sorry ladies, I warned you at the top.”
The celebrity then made disparaging sexual remarks about Ingraham.
“Your lord and savior Donald Trump wouldn’t even grab you by the pussy. If he did he’d probably get his fingers caught in a mousetrap.
You went to college, Laura, and you’re proud of that, and what do you got to show for it? A mouth full of fake teeth, a face full of Botox and some dry-ass hair extensions. And you still never got f—ed right, you little jumpoff.”
The dispute began last week after James said President Trump “don’t give a f— about the people.”
Ingraham asserted that the Cleveland player and Durant, who was with James at the time, should “shut up and dribble.”
The athletes, as well as MSNBC’s Joy Reid, accused Ingraham of “ignorance” and racism.
The “Ingraham Angle” host later responded in a statement:
“There was no racial intent in my remarks – false, defamatory charges of racism are a transparent attempt to immunize entertainment and sports elites from scrutiny and criticism.”
Rapaport’s jump into the fray came hours after he was fired from the satirical sports and men’s lifestyle blog Barstool for calling the website’s fans “losers in life,” TMZ reported.
On Twitter, the actor’s bad day was noted and he was called out for the misogynistic undertones of his rant. Will liberals condemn him?
His retort is an extremely misogynistic, demeaning, ad hominem attack on a woman. So is he part of the #metoo movement or the problem?

Welcome to 2018, where vulgar, emotional ranting is cheered over rational debate.

Weinstein protoge. It’s what we’ve come to expect from Hollywood. Talks about Trump’s inappropriate remarks towards women while making his own. I guess to MR some women deserve it.

Anyone who applauds @MichaelRapaport‘s ad hominem, misogynistic, and demeaning attack on a woman should visualize such words and sentiments directed at women you love and support.
Do you still think that it’s so great?
If you do, what does that say about you?#LauraIngraham

Okay, but why did we have to insult her as a woman? This is seriously just as offensive. Like I don’t agree with her, but there was no call in what you said either.
