Shameless star Steve Howey jokingly compared President Barack Obama to the fast-spreading Ebola virus … and he’s now in hot water as a result.
On Thursday, Howey tweeted, ‘People shouldn’t be so scared about this virus from Africa. He only has two more years of his presidency.’
Very unfortunately, the joke came at a time when the US is dealing with the recent diagnosis of an American who had just returned from Liberia with the Ebola disease in Dallas, Texas. Apparently Howey does not know when to time sensitive jokes.
The tweet has since been taken down … but it has already been retweeted several times and his fans are not happy with him.
