Bill Maher under fire for Tim Tebow Christmas tweets


Bill Maher & Tim Tebow

Comedian and television host Bill Maher is attracting some criticism following his tweet about quarterback Tim Tebow during the Denver Broncos and Buffalo Bills game this past Sunday.

During the game, Maher (@BillMaher) tweeted “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’s graphic tweet takes on more weight when it is considered that Tebow, who had up until the game on Sunday a more than impressive season thus far, is a devout Catholic and open about retaining his virginity, even at 24 years old.

Following that tweet, Maher went on to pen two additional tweets more or less dismissing the legitimacy of Christmas and Catholicism. He made no mention on his account of the criticism that has fallen on him since the Tebow tweet.

The HBO host of ‘Real Talk’ is no stranger to controversy. The very open atheist makes his opinions clear on his show talk show, and has also come under fire in recent months for discussion of Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Pope Benedict XVI.
