Comedian Artie Lange tweeted a trail of “jokes” regarding ESPN First Look host Cari Champion whom he finds attractive. Words including erection, jerk-off, white dick, and cum were used. To emphasize his lust for Champion, he created a scenario where he is Thomas Jefferson and Champion is his slave. Champion is black, Lange is white.
Predictably his tweets have caused public outrage. Lange is accused of being sexist and racist, among other things. His appearance on Comedy Central’s TV show Midnight has been cancelled–which he think isn’t fair. Lange says the “PC army” has won. And he won’t apologize to them because “they are ruining the country.” He did apologize to Cari Champion and then tried to be humble by adding: “For the record my moms disgusted w the tweets. But if I based my humor on my mom I’d be broke.”
