Can’t we all just get along. In a time when the country is so politically divided, celebrities are adding tot he mix on Twitter.
A little less than a week ago, Scott Baio decided to take on Wanda Sykes, asking her a question about Joe Biden and Roseanne Barr. Two names not often linked together.
“Hey @iamwandasykes why is it okay for @JoeBiden to say something clearly racist but @therealroseanne gets kicked off of her own show that YOU are a writer on, for making a mistake? Is it because you’re a full of s**t, hack liberal?”
What Scott is referring to is when former Vice President Joe Biden made a racist comment during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on “The Breakfast Club.”
“Well I tell you what, If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Joe spouted during the interview. The quote was picked up and outrage ensued. Biden later apologized saying, “I shouldn’t have done that. It was a mistake.”

As for Roseanne Barr, many will remember that a racist tweet Roseanne posted in reference to President Obama’s former advisor Valerie Jarrett causing her to be fired from her sit come Roseanne in 2018. Roseanne later apologized, writing “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.”
Scott compared both Biden and Barr’s actions in his Tweet, asking for a response from Wanda. Well, he got one. It may have been a week later, but Wanda acknowledged Scott with a post of her own.
“Oh! Hey Chachi. Apologies, I didn’t see you,” she wrote in reply to his Tweet. “I’ll keep it short. Joe Biden didn’t say, “Then you ain’t an ape.” Well, let me get back to work…I hope you enjoy whatever it is that you do.”

Wanda’s supporters came out in droves, commenting on the post.
“Let me get this straight, Chachi is trying to “school” Wanda Sykes about racism? She took him from Happy Days to Happy Slays in 1 single tweet! you @iamwandasykes,” one fan commented.
“Nobody loves chachi,” another fan added.
“100% here for Ms Sykes dragging Scott Baio. 100%.” added another.
“Chachi just found out that Wanda’s in charge,” one fan said, combining Scott’s two shows Happy Days and Charles in Charge.
What would we do without celebrity feuds?
