NBC interrupted Sunday night’s football game between the 49ers and Patriots to show President Obama’s speech at the Sandy Hook tragedy. This prompted some idiots to use racist words on Twitter. It was shocking! I’m sorry, do you need help? Because I can only assume you just fell out of your chair. I know. I was shocked too. Even more shocking? A bunch of people said non-racist things about Obama’s speech pre-empting the football game.
If your complaining about President Obama interrupting the Patriots game to talk about a tragedy then you really need to reevaluate yourself

Have some respect, this is for the kids who lost their lives, no need to explain how you hate Obama, get over it. Football can wait — Zaine Taff (@taff96) December 17, 2012
If you’re seriously upset because you care more about a football game than Obama’s speech on the shooting in Newtown then you have a problem

Of course Obama’s gonna address what happened. No football game is more important than the people who lost their lives in this freak tragedy — Patrick Johnson (@Patrick_Coe) December 17, 2012

Friday everybody was so upset about the tragedy. Today, everyone’s pissed that Obama’s speech is interrupting football. Yeah… — Mike Joyce (@mf_joyce) December 17, 2012
Patriots game means nothing to me right now. When President Obama started reading off those names I couldn’t hold it together. Beautiful.

President Obama speaking live in Newtown CT…& I’m okay with it interrupting the Patriots game. Some things are more important than sports. — Andrew Taylor (@andrewtaylor09) December 17, 2012
