Tell us how you really feel, Alec.
Actor Alec Baldwin is no stranger to ranting on Twitter, and his most recent victim just so happened to be the also-very-opinionated Hank Williams Jr.
You may recall that Hank Jr. recently made some not-so-nice remarks about President Obama during a concert at the Iowa State Fair.
Hank told the crowd, "We've got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him." (He echoed those sentiments even more recently at a concert near Dallas, telling the crowd, “We’ve got a Muslim for a president who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays and we hate him!”)
Hank’s comments led to a tweet from Alec: "If Hank Williams Jr wasn't such a pathetic, wheezing fossil, I'd have a talk with him." He added, "I think we need to call Hank Williams Jr what he is . . . a broken-down, senile, racist coot."
Last October, Hank was forced to apologize after comparing Obama to Adolf Hitler during an interview with Fox News, when he equated President Obama playing golf with Republican House Speaker John Boehner to "Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu." That comment also resulted in ESPN permanently pulling the entertainer's opening theme song from Monday Night Football.
