Scott Baio Don’t Know How to Act

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I don’t know about any of y’all but Scott Baio has never been particularly special in my book.  In a recent wine-fueled conversation with some lady friends I was horrified to learn that some people who I consider close good friends would rather have had sex with young Scott Baio than young Tony Danza. I know, I don’t get it either.  But I love these people so I suspended judgment and got on with my life. Until a few days ago when I was alerted to the following  Looks like Charles isn’t in Charge so much as he’s a fucking prick. And some lady he married, huh?

"You Lesbian Shitasses": Scott Baio's Wife Rants On Facebook (Updates)

Scott Baio has been having some Internet troubles lately. And now his wife Renee is taking to the web to fight cunty “lesbos.” How did it come to this?!

Brief backstory: On an earlier edition of Tweetbeat, Jezebel pointed out the 80s sitcom actor’s aversion to paying taxes to support “lazy” people:

Baio’s response was pretty defensive.

Well. Twitter is a blunt instrument, huh? And that’s how we got#scottbaioruinseverything as a hashtag, a micro-army of wingnut followers trashing us, Mr. Baio protecting his Tweets, and, finally, Mrs. Baio posting that sweet, homophobic poetry (above) on her Facebook page, directed towards the staff and readers of Jezebel. Harsh words from a woman who has joined Facebook groups for Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Cracker Barrel, and… Hot Moms.

And briefly, we got a Wikipedia entry proclaiming Baio to be the anti-Christ. Which is not very nice! (Click to enlarge)

To paraphrase a colloquial expression that clearly got lost in translation: These people don’t need our help to appear total bigots. They can do it all by themselves. Thanks, Internet! And thanks, Baio family, for proving that Twitter does indeed ruin celebrities.

Update: Renee Baio responds. Some of her best friends are lesbians! But not shitasses.

Like, whoa right?  Holy shit. Charles isn’t even able to be In Charge of his own unchecked rage at this point. ANd that hairline is no picnic either.

    I know this is more your approach to arguments than it is mine, but I’m going to go with it anyway: I don’t remember which side I started on, but I’m going to argue something any way I can. That link to “young scott baio” didn’t work and I think you’re sabotaging him. Also, you win, any fantasy is now derailed.
