If you were watching the the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots game last night then you surely saw Barack Obama interrupt the first quarter with a brief speech live from Newtown, Connecticut regarding the shootings.
And while they did announce they would switch the game to another channel for the duration of his message many people, mainly on Twitter, grew upset and voiced their racist and inappropriate opinions.
It is sad to see that people care more about a football game than the victims of such a horrendous tragedy. This is a sampling of some of the ignorance that took place last night.
really? can’t even watch sunday night football cuz our nigger prez has to talk, really?
