Bill Maher vs. Tim Tebow: Comedian's tweet sparks outrage | News
DENVER -- Comedian Bill Maher is no stranger to criticism, especially from the religious community, so it shouldn’t surprising that he’s catching heat for his tweet about Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow on Christmas Eve.
After the Broncos lost to the Buffalo Bills 40-14, Maher tweeted, "Wow, Jesus just f***ked #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler 'Hey, Buffalo's killing them'"
Tebow threw a career-high 4 interceptions in the game.
Fox Business' "Follow the Money" host Eric Bolling fired back with his Twitter response: "Bill Maher is disgusting vile trash. I can't even repeat what he just tweeted about Tebow..on Christmas Eve. #straighttohellBill."
Some Twitter users are calling for a boycott of HBO which airs "Real Time with Bill Maher."
