INTERACTIVE: It's Tebow Time
The comedian is taking significant heat after weighing in with a sarcastic tweet on Tim Tebow's hellish performance over the weekend against Buffalo.
Entertainment Weekly reported Maher invoked Tebow, Jesus and even Hitler in his sarcastic summation of Tebow's performance against Buffalo, writing that:
"Wow, Jesus just f----- #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler "Hey, Buffalo's killing them," Maher tweeted.
The TV show says Maher has been widely slammed for the remark, but that Tebow didn't respond, and kept his tweets focused on more upbeat messages.
