Scott Baio is an outspoken Trump supporter and he recently made the bad decision to go after a Trump critic who quickly put him in his place.
The “Happy Days” actor started the drama over the weekend when he tweeted at comedian and actress Wanda Sykes shortly after Joe Biden told Charlamagne that anyone on the fence about voting for him or Donald Trump “ain’t black.”
“Hey @iamwandasykes why is it okay for @JoeBiden to say something clearly racist but @therealroseanne gets kicked off of her own show that YOU are a writer on, for making a mistake? Is it because you’re a full of shit, hack liberal?” Baio tweeted.
Sykes was a writer for the revival of “Roseanne,” but when Roseanne Barr tweeted comparing former White House advisor Valerie Jarrett, who is a black woman, to the “Planet of the Apes,” Sykes quit the show.
On Wednesday, Sykes saw Baio’s tweet and buried him with her response.
“Oh! Hey Chachi,” Sykes tweeted. “Apologies, I didn’t see you. I’ll keep it short. Joe Biden didn’t say, ‘Then you ain’t an ape.’ Well, let me get back to work…I hope you enjoy whatever it is that you do.”
Baio’s tweet also caught the attention of Actress Merrin Dungey, who is the sister of former ABC president Channing Dungey.
“Super proud it was my sister who did the firing on that one,” Dungey wrote. “And she was swift in her response too.”
Author John Pavlovitz added his two cents tweeting, “It’s hard to believe you’re 59 years old and still this bad at being human. Sure, keep supporting the guy endorsed by the KKK, who put Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, and Jeff Sessions on his staff— and pretending you give a damn about racism.”
Tom Arnold, Roseanne Barr’s ex-husband also chimed in calling Baio a “tool.”
