(Newser) – Scott Baio seems to enjoy tweeting offensive things and then watching as outrage ensues. The latest controversy started when good old Charles in Charge tweeted that his taxes would pay the way of “lazy non working people,” and Jezebel posted the tweet. Baio wasn’t too happy, calling the folks over at Jezebel “ignorant” and “racist,” among other things. Then his wife got involved, and things really got ugly.

Renee Baio went on a Facebook rant of Courtney Love proportions, calling the Jezebel staffers “lesbian shitasses” and bemoaning their “cuntness," all while attempting to escape the label of “homophobe” by proudly declaring, “I have lesbian friends that couldn’t be nicer.” Scott defended the whole thing, maintaining that “we all have the right to exercise our freedom of speech.” The Huffington Post sums up the chain of events nicely.

ahahahahh oh goodness, "I have lesbian friends." Just because you know a black guy doesn't mean you can use the n-word. Just because you have lesbian friends doesn't mean you're not a homophobic bint.
