Hillary Rosen deleted her tweet, after she got “schooled” on Twitter about how ridiculous she sounded.
Because Jews are not “offended” by bacon (whatever that means).
I do want to respond to her, though:
“You’re an idiot. Happy Hanukkah.”
Hilary Rosen might want to fact-check before she tweets.
The CNN commentator is facing backlash after calling a Georgetown University sports fan anti-Semitic for wearing a bacon suit to his school’s basketball game against Syracuse University.
“Look at the guy in the ‘bacon suit,'” Rosen tweeted Saturday before later deleting the tweet. “This is a Georgetown #Hoyas fans anti-Semitic smear to the Syracuse team.”
Rosen later tweeted after Syracuse won the game, “Hey bacon-man. #Syracuse for the win. Bigots lose. Bye #Hoyas #Cuse.”
However, it turns out the student’s name is Michael Bakan and he says he wasn’t trying to taunt the school’s Jewish students by dressing as the non-Kosher food.
Bakan told the Daily Caller he often wears the bacon suit simply because his last name is pronounced like the breakfast staple…
“Hey, it’s ‘bacon man.’ It’s actually Mr. Bakan — pronounced ‘bacon.’ Just a fun costume,” Bakan tweeted at Rosen.
Rosen tried to save face tweeting back to Bakan she “got some bad info” regarding his costume.
Publish smear first, research second. #CNN
