Protestors Want CBS To Give Letterman The Boot!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsDavid LettermanSarah Palin

palinlettermanvs__opt121.jpg

Even though both parties have kissed and made up, a quickly-expanding number of online protestors are petitioning for David Letterman to be taken off the air for his off-collar joke about Sarah Palin's daughter!

They've also threatened to boycott the sponsors of the Late Show until he gets the axe!

Morons!!!

Over 30,000 people have made the "pledge" on FireDavidLetterman.com to boycott the products sold by the sponsors and even organized a protest outside the Ed Sullivan Theater on Tuesday in NYC.

Once again… morons!!

Said Michael Patrick Leahy, spearhead of the campaign: "David Letterman's comments were disgraceful and beyond the bounds of common decency… It is highly inappropriate for a 62-year-old man to make sexual insults about a 14-year-old girl."

Leahy then went on to compare Letterman's joke to the extremely racist remark radio host Don Imus made in 2007 (calling members of a female basketball team "nappy-headed ho's") that eventually got him fired.

How could anyone ever compare the two???

CBS has yet to release a statement or comment on the issue, but we can't see the network firing Dave anytime soon!

Do U agree with the protest???

    The protest is f-ing stupid. Bunch of religious a-hole conservatives who have nothing to do. If CBS gives in…They are a bunch of nappy headed ho's.



  2. 2

    Team Letterman!!!



  3. 3

    dont fire davvvvve!



  4. 4

    This is idiotic. They all know that Letterman's joke was about Palin's daughter who was paraded out in front of everyone for months during her pregnancy (don't even get me going on the hypocrisy of the acceptability of Bristol Palin being pregnant versus any other child in the country). Everyone knows that his joke, albeit in poor taste, was not about a 14 year old. They are milking this for all it's worth.

    Shut these morons up already.



  5. 5

    I haven't watched Letterman in years. After the way he treated Bill O. on his show I never watched again. I will not even "surf" over his show. Never will I watch him and his hate mongering again. He is a typical nasty liberal.



  6. 6

    No I do not agree with the protesters! In fact, I am going to watch Late Night tonight so I can make sure to see who Dave's sponsors are so I can buy their products. I want to make sure the protesters don;t make have an impact on anything . This is so RIDICULOUS of SP. I guess she is keeping her name in the news for 2012.



  7. 7

    Give me a fucking break! People are way too sensitive.



  8. 8

    Letterman is just another hate mongering, nasty, liberal



  9. 9

    What in hell are they protesting for?? It is NOT acceptable for 14 year olds to have babies. They are not capable of caring for babies financially or emotionally. Period. Sarah Palin should be ashamed of her daughter.

    TEAM LETTERMAN!!!



  10. 10

    Whilst I do not think what he said was appropriate at all, I do not believe that he needs to be fired. All parties have made up and apologized. She did have the right to get mad and he needed to apologize. Thats that. The end

  11. slgm says – reply to this


    11

    it's all lame



  12. 12

    David told an off-color joke about an 18 year old!!! This is ridiculous. He is a good man who made a mistake and apologized for it! As he said, he has been in the business 30 years and has never made this kind of statement before. Get over it!!!



  13. 13

    people need to get over themselves, for gods sake, he's a comedian, he meant it as a joke



  14. 14

    This is bullshit, it was just a joke, it's not like he meant anything by it. He's even publicly apologized TWICE. Fuck these protesters. Sarah Palin just wanted attention because she's a dumb fucking hick.



  15. 15

    If you don't like it, don't watch it!!!!



  16. 16

    this is ridiculous. people need to chill out.



  17. 17

    fuck no fuck sarah palin and her slutty daughters



  18. 18

    omg get over it. he should never have apologized in the first place. she should apologize for making us listen to her, go away!



  19. 19

    .
    Back off. Relax everybody ..



  20. 20

    ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! What is wrong with people??? It was a JOKE! He shouldn't have even apologized for it.



  21. 21

    That is the stupidest shit I've ever heard. If CBS conforms to these band of idiots then they're the morons. The dude's said he's sorry and goofball forgave me. Let's move the f*ck on already!



  22. 22

    FUCK THEM!
    .
    B O Y C O T T HILTON AND EMBASSY SUITES!



  23. 23

    Must be the same morons that voted for it.



  24. 24

    IF CBS DOES THIS, B OY COTT THEM TOO!



  25. 25

    Why doesn't Caribou Barbie SHUT UP and return to Alaska…surely she could find something better to do than keep harping on Dave. Perhaps she babysit her unwed daughter's illegitimate baby and her own new child. Ms. Palin is a sorry excuse for a woman…always badmouthing someone else but never cleaning up her own disgusting messes.

  26. *Jem* says – reply to this


    26

    they should fire letterman because he ISNT funny



  27. 27

    God, these people are absurd. Ms. Palin has turned into a freaken cartoon.



  28. 28

    It's 'off-color', not 'off-collar.



  29. 29

    .. Get a life Ms.Palin!!! 30, 000 thats a drop in the bucket. I lov Dave



  30. 30

    Actually, it's an incredibly salient comparison. However, the PC police got Imus fired, which was wrong. So, in the name of free speech, I say Letterman stays where he is.



  31. 31

    He apologized, she accepted…it's over. CBS will not and should not fire Letterman.



  32. 32

    OMG I am rolling on the floor laughing my ass off.
    These whack jobs think they have a hope in hell of getting Letterman fired.
    I can't stop laughing.
    They have a better chance of getting a handjob from Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie at the same time.



  33. 33

    Re: WidgetWitch – Relax tinkerbell, relax.



  34. 34

    Someone needs to go down to the local rest stop and slap the cock out of Perez's mouth and let him know that he's alienating a majority of his viewership with the liberal venom he spews day after day.



  35. 35

    MARIO YOU ARE A MORON AND A MEAN EVIL ASSHOLE WHY DO YOU HATE PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE WITH YOUR VIEWS



  36. 36

    Re: Megan1 – So it's okay for Bill O'LIElly to be rude to his guests who are on opposing sides and not allow them to speak, but not okay for liberals. Hypocrite much?



  37. 37

    ..She is a complete moron ..never once said anything about her 14 year old daughter



  38. 38

    I think its a little overboard however I do agree that kids should be left out jokes or gossip.



  39. 39

    the protest is lame since nothing will come from it but this just proves to me once again that most men are complete perverts



  40. 40

    Hmmm…..an ultra conservative, NRA supporter used in the 2008 elections for her looks to get people interested in the republican party is upset that her daughter was mocked for being pregnant at 18 when she was flaunted all over the media during the campaign….hmmm…Palin…I smell hypocracy!



  41. 41

    This is ridiculous. It's obvious that Palin was using her daughter as an excuse to get back into the news. Letterman's intent was clearly not to make reference of the 14 year old, but instead to make fun of the of age daughter of Palin who is an out of wedlock teen mother. The fact is that when Palin entered the political forum she opened herself and her family up to being the butts of jokes. The fact that the Palins make it so easy to joke about, well, that's something that Mrs. Palin is going to have to deal with on her own. Perhaps if she had done a better job at raising her daughter with the bastard son, Letterman's joke would have no meaning. Really, Mrs. Palin is being a sore loser in regard to the fact that she knows she did a lousy job parenting, and she doesn't like that it's so obvious that a late night talk show host can make a joke about it. By diverting the attention to her younger daughter, she's really just displacing the blame from herself to letterman. I'd rather have Letterman for public office than Palin any day. Honestly, she sets women back 50 years. She should meditate on being a better mother first and worry less about attacking comedians.



  42. 42

    people are idiots. Get a life and get something better to do with your time. How about protesting for something with merit… I.e. gay rights! Now that's a better use of your time and intellect idiotic masses!



  43. 43

    I'm tired of hearing this shit being dragged out already. Fuck Sarah Palin too!!! I hate that stupid bitch.



  44. 44

    Re: SpiralJetty – HEY JACKASS HER 14 YR OLD DIDN'T HAVE A BABY BEFORE YOU MAKE A COMMENT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.



  45. 45

    Letterman should just go on live, give Sarah "15 minutes are up" Palin both barrels for the full hour, and then quit. He doesn't need the money, he doesn't need the hassle.

    Sarah Palin, go f— a moose. Oh wait, you married one.



  46. 46

    Christ almighty…this is ridiculous!! The whole thing has been ridiculous. People in this country have NO real worries, so they constantly have to create drama. Ridiculous. Move on.



  47. 47

    Fuck the protest…Give me a fucking break. Get a life. Get a good fuck !!!!



  48. 48

    Is it's ok to protest against Prop 8 but not okay to protest against an old man making jokes about a 18 year old mother isn't?

    Wow Perez, you sure know how to suppost freedom of speech.



  49. 49

    No! you'd have to be brain dead to think this is a good idea. literally…brain dead. I hate stupid white people.



  50. 50

    He crossed the line and Perez would never let up if it was a gay joke.



  51. 51

    What these douchey right wing nitwits won't do to turn nothing into something. Desparate losers.



  52. 52

    why should television be taken over by a bunch of alaskan hillbillies and their ilk? these people need to return to the tundra

  53. Shino says – reply to this


    53

    Where was all this bullshit when W or Obama or McCain or Gore or even Quail was being dogged? Too many sensitive ass bitches in this place pitching a fit like a stuttering PETA douchebag.



  54. 54

    It was a joke in poor taste, he apologized, she accepted, so what's the deal?? sore republicans still upset over Obama?? bordem?? a mix of both??

  55. LEAH. says – reply to this


    55

    Re: SpiralJetty – ….ARE YOU REALLY THAT DUMB? I want to embarrass you for the stupidity of that statement. Everyone, look at #10.

    WTF. Palin's 14-year old daughter is not pregnant?! Of course she's not capable of raising a child. Her 18 year old daughter is pregnant, ya doofus.

    And everyone saying, "Well duh he was talking about the 18 year old daughter!"…UM, Palin was in New York with her 14-year old daughter and only her. So when Dave talks about 'Sarah Palin's daughter getting knocked up at Yankee Stadium', the only daughter that was there was Willow, the 14-year old. Leading people to believe he was talking about her.

    The idiot just didn't do his research. And neither did you, obviously, because you're an idiot.



  56. 56

    WHAT IF HE TALKED ABOUT RAPING OBAMAS DAUGHTERSSSS??? PEOPLE WOULD BE RIOTING TO HAVE HIM FIRED??!!!

    YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE TOO! WTF? of course he should be fired



  57. 57

    Remember, Sarah Palin has repeatedly shown herself to be a total ignoramus. Perhaps she really thought Letterman was talking about her 14 year old. Originally, I thought it was manufactured, but I completely discounted just how stupid (and vapid) this woman is.

    Honestly, if someone doesn't tell her what to say (or think), how to say it, and what it actually means, she wouldn't get it on her own. I am amazed she manages to breathe on her own…thank god for innate biological responses - for her. Too bad the rest of us have to suffer her foolishness.



  58. 58

    I THINK HE THOUGHT IT WAS THE OLDER GIRL SINCE THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME



  59. 59

    I agree with another poster! I am going to watch Dave every night. I am going to see who sponsors his show and buy the products! I will forward an email to all my FOD's
    (Friends of Dave) and let them know who sponsors his show. I will no longer book any hotel rooms (regardless of my points) at Embassy Suites because they pulled out their sponsorship. Sarah Palin and her protesters are morons for taking this so seriously. Get over it.



  60. 60

    DID EVERYONE FORGET THAT JAY LENO MADE A SIMILAR JOKE ABOUT BRISTOL AND ELLIOT SPITZER? GO DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE



  61. 61

    Re: MsJoanne – It was, it was referring to sex with a basketball player. The younger daughter was at the game so he was referring to her not the older one! look it up and get your facts straight first



  62. 62

    I do not think Dave should be fired. However Mario, you are insane to think the two comments aren't the same. They are both vile and unfunny. Whether it is racist or a sexual joke about a 14 yo, they are disgusting and wrong. Dave apologized, Palin accepted, this should be dropped. There are more inportant things to deal with, like getting Obama out of office.

  63. YUCK says – reply to this


    63

    these protestrors are just ridiculous giving in to this crap will only lend credence to the palin joke.



  64. 64

    That is fucking stupid I'm pretty sure more then have of those 30,000 people DON'T even watch his show anyways.
    What a bunch of fucking losers, they need to get over it. Sarah accepted his apology, move the fuck on.
    David Letterman = WIN.



  65. 65

    time for a good ol fashion drive by kill all those fuckin religious freaks…Palin too would be cool



  66. 66

    This is stupid! CBS is not going to fire David Letterman. Thanks to this his ratings are the better they have been in forever. Sarah Palin is using this situation and her daughter to get publicity.



  67. 67

    The funny thing is, if this was a republican making fun of a democrat the protests would be okay with you Perez, and with the others on this site who attack them. I am not saying I agree, however, there is such a ridiculous double standard in our party. We get away with so much more than the conservatives do, we attack them by name and make comments that are deemed unfunny or that are very wrong and then we get upset when we get attacked for them. We attack harder and it is seen as ok. If I didn't agree with Most of the parties stances, save for Obama, I would leave the Democratic party. This is yet another reason to be ashamed of my fellow party members.



  68. 68

    All you ppl bitching and complaining need to shut up now and remove the sticks from your assess. Dave rocks I thought it was funny but then again I am smart enough to "get" the joke. If you don't like it don't watch its pretty simple.



  69. 69

    At this moment members of the Tennessee Democratic Party are calling for the firing of a legislative aid for sending out a "reprehensible" e-mail depicting Obama as two white eyes on a black background. Do you detect a double standard here? Sit back and watch the left preach about racism, and then watch those same folks say there was nothing wrong with the "reprehensible" remark about Pain's daughter. Why is it that a woman of any age can be degraded, and sexually exploited, but the poor judgment of a low-paying government aid is crucified for poking fun at the most powerful man in the world. This is why I've lost so much respect for the liberal left.



  70. 70

    Sarah Palin is a publicity hound. She's now managed to pull the NOW and the military (as per a quote I saw on tonight's news) into this circus. Arguably the "joke" may have been in poor taste but she needs to leave it alone now that she's accepted Letterman's apology. She's taking something said in jest, again probably not one of Letterman's finer moments, and she's using it as yet another platform for her run for the presidency in 2012. I really wish she'd stay in Alaska and STFU.



  71. 71

    It was a frickin joke get over it. Stop being whiny brats and get over it.



  72. 72

    What he said was offensive and in poor tastew. However, i don't think he should be fired. When Don Imus made those remarks, the only reason he got fired was because people like Rev. Al Sharpton and Jesse James were stirring up trouble. He apologized, so i think people should accept that…Sarah Palin did.



  73. 73

    Re: MsJoanne Oh we do huh? Given his joke was about them attending a Yankees game, and her 18 year old daughter WAS NOT THERE? Yeah, clear as day.



  74. 74

    Re: SpiralJetty Are you stupid or clueless? Her 14 year old didn't have a kid, moron.



  75. 75

    PALIN IS A RETARDED HO….



  76. 76

    Re: Gramcan – i agree. People aren't making a big deal about it because they are white republicans. If it was said about obama's daughters, people would be outraged and he would definitely be fired.



  77. 77

    Re: SerenaD

    …conservatives are the only ones who rape 14 year old girls? Wow…I don't even know how to respond to such a hateful, prejudiced comment. Not to mention completely ignorant and stupid. I don't think anyone really worries about what political party rapists belong to…



  79. 79

    Re: PrinceD – Someone already did…LOL!



  80. 80

    Maybe your the moron Perez. He made a cruel joke about Bristol Palin and now he has to pay. When anyone asks about his wife he immediately doesn't like it. Why then does he think it is acceptable to make fun of another person. He made a dumb sexual joke and was denouncing women. I GUARANTEE THAT IF HE WAS DENOUNCING GAYS, YOU WOULD BE PISSED OFF. SO I AM STANDING UP FOR WOMEN. DEAL WITH IT AND DONT CALL ME A MORON!



  81. 81

    oh please…if anything, cbs is loving all this.
    p.s. dave is hilarious!



  82. 82

    Perez you never cease to amaze me, calling adult women "nappy headed ho's" isn't as bad as making crude sexual jokes about underage girls, you obviously either A.) didn't receive a good education or B.) someone didn't teach you about morals. While both remarks are absurd your ignorance isn't appreciated , stop your antics you queen



  83. 83

    If Pailin had gone to Letterman privately with her complaint instead of doing the whole goddamn press conferenc routine, damn near nobody would have given it a second thought and forgotten about it already. As a mom, I can see why she's angry, but sheesh- do SOMETHING to help protect your daughter's privacy rather than reinforcing the whole world's attention to the fact that she got herself knocked up at 17.

    She's a big fish in a small pond, population-in-Alaska-wise, and that's where she needs to stay.



  84. 84

    Re: adriana860 – Moron



  85. 85

    I am watching Dave tonight!!!!!



  86. 86

    HELL NO!



  87. 87

    MRS PALIN IS WHERE SHE BELONGS AND WILL STAY FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE, WHERE SHE CAN SEE RUSSIA FROM HER BACK YARD AND HAVING SPRENCER PRATT AS HER RUNNING MATE IN THE NEXT ELECTION (way to kill all the ruplican party stupid ass spencer…you are the most idiodic thing i have ever seen, worse than Heidis gun totting dad and white trash family)



  88. 88

    Nooooooo! Team David… Camp David, lol. These bitches need to quit now. America is the most offended nation in the world. Always looking for something or someone to be outraged about. Always a controversy. I hope pro-Dave rallies start outside Ed Sullivan Theatre too. And I hope he shits all over these Fire Dave people on his show. Or better yet, give them some Jamba Juice and other refreshments. We can work it out, Beatles style.



  89. 89

    Sarah Palin makes everyone in Alaska look stupid. What sort of people would elect this vapid retard as their governor?



  90. 90

    PALIN LIKES TO SUCK BALLS



  91. 91

    FUCKING STUPID ASS MORONS. DONT THEY HAVE JOBS TO BE AT? LIVES? FAMILY? GET A FUCKING CLUE. LETTERMAN IS THE SHIT!



  92. 92

    Since his ratings have gone up, cant they charge more the the advertising? I just feel bad for Conan because he is not getting any publicity lately. Anyhow, these people are idiots and they don't realize their protests will backfire.



  93. 93

    imagine sitting down in front of the tv and hearing the host on a show seen by millions calling your daughter a whore.. then 'apologizing' by saying he meant to call your OTHER daughter a whore. would you just laugh it off ? if so, i'm glad you're not MY parent.
    if the 'jokes' were about the obama girls would you be laughing or are only jokes about palin's daughters funny ?
    the imus 'joke' was about the whole team in general, letterman's 'jokes' were very personal. i didn't think imus should have been fired either, but dave should be shamed for sinking so low.



  94. 94

    SOMEONE START www.DoNotFireDavidLetterman.com

    PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  95. 95

    WHAT SHE NEED TO DO IS WORRY ABOUT WHO IS GONNA PAY CHILD SUPPORT FOR HER GRANDSON. NEXT TIME TELL BRIST TO KEEP HER LEGS CLOSED IF YOU DON'T WANT PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT HER. SHE IS A BABY MAMA JUST LIKE EVERY YOUNG IN THIS COUNTRY. BE A BETTER EXAMPLE PAILIN



  96. 96

    My question is y are jokes still being made about the Palins? Let them go live in there fantasy world in Alaska. And people need to stop getting mad at comedians!! Thats what they do make jokes that rub people the wrong way get over it and get a life.



  97. 97

    For those of you who think it's just the far right wing "religious" conservatives mad about this, perhaps you should look at some websites for far left non-religious liberal women's organizations, like National Organization for Women. They have nothing in common with Sarah Palin or her views, yet they were angry enough about this incident to issue a public statement and make a form available on their website where incensed non-mysogynists can write in to the CEO of Letterman's network to complain.
    Jokes like this are wrong. Wrong because she's just a child, wrong because the oversexualization of young women in this country is rampant, wrong because any beef Dave has with Sarah Palin should be limited to jokes about Sarah herself. However, I do not think Dave deserves to lose his job over this, nor do I think he will.



  98. 98

    Re: pattiCAKE
    She accepted his apology, and she had every right to be angry in the first place. Sexual jokes shouldn't be made about any young women, any children in the public eye. She isn't organizing this protest.



  99. 99

    Re: SpiralJetty
    Her 14 year old didn't have a baby, her 18 year old did. Perhaps you have been living under some rock for the past year or so. And to clarify, though the joke was probably intended to be about the 18 year old (which was still uncalled for), Dave unintentionally made the joke about the younger daughter. Which was just gross.



  100. 100

    are you freaking kidding me? they'd have to fire everyone & cancel every show on tv except for bible power hour (if there is such a thing) & dora the explorer if every show/person that did or said something offensive was kicked off air. these people need to get a life.
