Protestors Want CBS To Give Letterman The Boot!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsDavid LettermanSarah Palin


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!


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???

    Re: citiesburn
    Legendary or not, no comedian should escape completely unscathed for making sexualized jokes about the children of politicians. No comedian should be able to get away with calling a politician "slutty" simply because she is dresses nicely and has a pretty face. And this happened two nights in a row. You can make fun of Sarah Palin for a number of things, but it's incredibly insulting to make her into a sex object like that, and it's highly inappropriate for him to make cracks- particularly sexual ones- about her children.
    And I'm willing to bet if the joke had been about the Obama girls there would be upset and outrage from all the people defending Dave and telling the Palins they should lighten up. Those people wouldn't be in the wrong, they wouldn't be called "morons" by Perez and all the nasty names people have used on this comment thread.

  2. 202

    please perez if he made a gay joke in five seconds you'd have the website up and be telling everyone to put their name on the petition to kick him off air, just because you're a bleeding heart liberal doesn't mean what Letterman said isn't wrong and that he shouldn't have repercussions

  3. 203

    ABSOLUTELY agree!!! Typical liberal with no morals, but that's what our world is coming to.

  4. 204

    Are u kidding me? Letterman meant no harm by saying that joke….although it was a terrible joke. He apologized and knows that he did wrong,

    They won't be able to get Letterman fired….this has gone way too far. get over it, move on people.

    I'm watching LEtterman tonite…showin support

  5. 205

    You've got to be kidding me. David Letterman is a living legend. Sarah Palin is a walking headache and will NEVER be president of my USA.

  6. 206

    Re: 1heartgossip
    The Obamas have brought their girls on stage with them, too. When Sasha or Malia turns 14, will you defend skeevy perv David Letterman's right to make jokes about them getting sexually assaulted? Michelle Obama is an attractive, younger woman who dresses nicely. When someone calls her "slutty" for wearing makeup and trendy clothes, whose side will you be on?

  7. 207

    My hope is the CBS will not renew Dave's contract and that Katie Couric gets fired and replaced by Carrie Prejean. Letterman is an angry old man with proven misogynistic track record. One look at his ugly pathetic homely wife begins to paint the picture of why he hates beautiful confident self assured women!!!!

    Re: LEAH. – sorry Leah - you might be the dufas. the 18 year old HAD a baby. you say she's preggers. it's sad you don't now facts yet try to state a real opinion. get it right then talk.

  9. 209

    Re: SpiralJetty – you moron- the 14 year old did NOT have a baby! her older daughter had the baby, and while its true that teenage pregnancy is difficult in any situation, there is a huge difference.

  10. 210

    Come on, Seriously? The Palins' deserve every bit of insult they get. Letterman is doing his job! Long live Letterman and Worldwide Pants!!!

  11. 211

    Fuck those assholes. Davey Let-man is the man and I hope this makes his ratings go sky high.

    Re: hellojessi – Bad day today? You're acting as though the Palins are your own family. Chill, dude, or take that good brain and use it towards an important issue bubbling somewhere. Else.

  13. 213

    This is blown way out of proportion.

  14. 214

    Re: SerenaD – you're calling republicans hypocrites. that is absurd, when don imus made a questionable comment he was fired, and that was directed at full grown women, not a teenager. What he said was ridiculous and its the liberals who are insanely hyporcitical! how do you not see that!!!!
    and how dare you say that republicans rape little boys!!! That is absolutely false!!!! you have no idea what you are taking about.

  15. 215

    palin's 18-not 14 year old daughter made her own farce of an innocent life when she stole her friend's boyfriend and got pregnant infront of the world stage- Dave's job is to poke sarcastic jokes at another's expense because thats what NewYork Comedy is all about–he appologised and explained it was not geared towards the younger sister but there goes palin again trying to make up any bullshit she can in the name of politics and getting her name in the rightous name blame game–she should let it go and so should her idiot followers

  16. 216

    Re: AustinD
    What you have said is so ridiculous and hateful. No one deserves to be called "slutty" on tv for being physically attractive. No child deserves to have sexual jokes made about her on a national television program. I don't care what politica party their parent represents.

  17. 217

    Re: hellojessi – That is such BS. What you're advocating for is sexism and censorship.
    Because a person is an elected official they are exempt from the same jokes that other public individuals are subject to? I don't like the jokes but there is some kind of sickbackwards heroism in thinking that the very people WE put into office are protected from the voicing of opinion for humor. Once again where do we draw the line? Where does the censorship end or do we simply put these people on a pedestal and pretend they are not as flawed as the rest of us???
    Humor has been one of the greatest devices we human beings have in order to express ourselves. We can expose great hypocrisy and irony by exposing it through humor.
    You know who I don't hear making a big fuss or trying to get Letterman fired? Anyone from David Spitzer's camp, was he not included in this earth-shatteringly offensive joke? Oh wait. He's an adult and he knows that at the end of the day you ignore idiots who make fun of you and do your job FIRST.

    She'd better pray the other one doesn't eventually get knocked up too, after all this hoopla. What happens to a 2012 run when she'll need to have someone at home chaperoning at all times during the hormone years… Oh, right. She can hire out for that.

    People need to fuck off!!! It was a fucking joke!!! Get over it!!!! RED NECK REPUBLICANS!!! BACK THE FUCK OFF!!!! JEESSSH

  20. 220

    John Edwards was mocked for his hair and the cost of his haircuts. Kerry was mocked for his windsurfing and his droopy facial expressions. Clinton (Bill) was mocked or his weight. Obama was mocked for his heritage and name.

    All were mocked for what they did, how they looked, how they acted.

    But Sarah Palin can't be mocked for what she wears???

    Wonderful example of reverse sexism. How hilarious.

    Don't dare make fun of her, she's only a girl. She has sensitive feelings and can't be put in those kind of situations.

    This is one reason so many women these days view feminism as an ugly word, because it has somehow become not a liberation but a gag.

    Re: WidgetWitch – Ummm…if you read in the bible and want to talk about sin….there is no greater sin than another. They are all the same. Jackass!

  22. 222

    Re: MarieRi
    I agree with you. Those nicknames are stupid. It comes from both sides. Palin could have handled it better, but if I were a mother, I'm pretty positive I'd be just as angry as she was. I don't think she sounded whiny, she sounded pissed. I think that Perez portrayed her as acting more victimized than she actually came across (I saw her press release and a few other news reports quite a while before Perez picked up the story and reported that she got angry about a completely different joke). My whole deal is that this issue should not be tolerated by the left or the right, by men or women. It's misogynistic and shameful. And it's completely inappropriate for a grown man to make sexual jokes about a child, whether she is 17 or 13 or any age. There are plenty of dumbasses on this board who fail to realize that, however, and continue the hate by calling the entire Palin clan "bitches", "sluts" and "slut bags", saying they should be hit, beaten, raped by animals….it's disgusting. More disgusting than any "hateful" comment I have heard from Rush Limbaugh or even the Palins themselves, who are sometimes called hatemongers.

  23. 223

    Team Letterman! These other people are idiots. I dont watch the show but will start just so these dumbasses wont make an impact.

  24. 224

    The thing for David to do is to have the most right wing christian guest he can find and the protesters won't be able to resist tuning in…

    Re: Bluebonnet – If you don't like the "liberal venom" that Perez "spews" everyday then why the f**k do you look at his site!! He is not here to cater to your conservative tastes, its a f**king blog for god sake.

    The whole situation is stupid. He mistook which daughter was at the game. Apologies were issued, no harm done. The Palin camp is just adding fuel to the fire by insinuating Letterman is a pedophile, trying to keep their name in the press. Its pathetic.

    Enough said.

  33. 233

    How is hinting that someone is ugly worse than talking about a man in his 30s knocking up a 14 year old?

  34. 234

    isn't Sarah Palin's 15 minutes of fame up YET?!


  35. 235

    Perez, you say that Imus' comment and Letterman's comment cannot be compared. "Extremely racist" remarks are is OK but sexism is not? Politically you might not like Palin, but why does that still cloud your perception of the issue- how is this not an injustice to the EQUALITY in the treatment of women, especially young women?

    Yes, Letterman is a comedian and his job is to be funny and to push the button so to speak, but this is crossing a line. Regardless of your opinion, I wish you'd treat this with a little more importance. Kids are looking up to you for their opinions (read the 200+ comments written here). You're powerful; I wrote an 8 page research paper comparing your weight to Peter Jennings, dammit. I love you P, but please be careful with your non-celebrity posts.

    Your comments like "Original" and "Moron!!" fuel your opposition exactly how Prop 8 supporters are fueled by your posts about the "Civil Rights" issue for gays.

    Re: @v@
    Yeah, actually, it has been a bad day. I'm in a lot of pain and am stuck at home because two weeks ago I had the metal rod that's screwed to my spine replaced. And I can't do anything but sit in bed, floating around the internet on my laptop, being angry at stupid people defending stupid jokes.
    I think I'm done now. Probably.

  37. 237

    So…I've always been moderate politically……..but…….FUCK PALIN

    This whole thing really fucking pisses me off. It's making me ANGRY actually.

    David was talking about her 18 year old daughter, not her 14 year old daughter. Duh. The 18 year old is the one with the baby!

    This is fucking ridiculous. I now understand that BULLSHIT of the republican party right now. It's unfucking believable.

    David Letterman deserves nothing but America's respect. He is the only funny one left on late night.

    I have lost so much respect for Sarah Palin. I respected her as a woman and didn't think she was too bad during the election…but now I see her true colors. The fucking idiot that she is.

  38. 238

    Just change the name Palin, insert Michelle Obama's name…then say that same joke to include the Obama daughters. Still just a joke or in poor taste.

  39. 239

    Re: hellojessi

    He called her a "the white house dog", and she was far from pregnant, nor had she done anything to deserve the comment. Rush is the epitome of hate speech, not just towards innocent teenagers whose fathers happen to be president, but towards ANYONE who is connected with someone he disagrees with. My point was, Dave Letterman spends TWO NIGHTS making bad jokes about Palin's daughter and he should be fired but Rush has been on air HOW LONG and is STILL GOING? It is SELECTIVE OUTRAGE. If you want to hold Letterman to those standards, fine, fire him, I don't care. But then why aren't they marching in outrage outside Rush's office? Because these people only care about insults towards politicians they side with. This is pure politics, don't give me any of this moral outrage bullshit. Conservative Republicans and the Christian Right are the last people to dictate what morals are to the rest of America.

    Re: MarieRi
    Just because I think someone *shouldn't* say something because it's indecent, rude, gross, and slightly sexist doesn't mean I think they should get fired for it. I don't like the fact that there are so many sexual jokes made about Sarah Palin (I didn't even vote for her). But no one should get fired for it. And no one should get fired for this. No grown woman deserves to be called slutty for the way she looks, or even the way she acts. Elected officials should be shown a certain amount of respect- just as any human being should. And a 62 year old man should have more common sense than to make jokes about children. Particularly those with sexual implications. I am no fan of censorship, just common decency and decorum.

    I don't dislike Palin, but COME ON!!!! What a play for publicity for repube values.
    DAVE is an icon, an institution, and entire evolutional levels more intelligent than herself.
    He is being a gentleman. She is being an opportunist. I would never have misunderstood his joke. But then, I am not out to attack and exploit his job.
    She is a poorly disguised parasite. If she runs for pres I will die of laughter. LUDICROUS!!!!

  42. 242

    Re: hellojessi – I think what I wanted from her was that showing of stead-fast strength. Despite what some people think not all libs are crazy. I myself didn't care for the joke nor did I really like the first apology (could have been handled better) but I also didn't like how this was dragged out.
    I don't think Palin should have demanded an apology, though as a woman I understand why she would feel and want one. But here's the problem. I want a politician no matter their level to be a good representative of the people. I don't want them thinking with their mom/wife/man/husband/college grad/white/black etc etc etc. brain when they should be focusing on issues.
    Yes it was about her daughter. Yes it was not pleasant. But it was also below her. People say mean things all the time as a politician she should have ignored a common entertainer and promoted her own beliefs.
    Furthermore how was she any less childish and offensive as Letterman was by insinuating he was somehow pedophilic. Remember when as a child you were told never to sink to that level?

  43. 243

    really tho..THIS is the worst thing thats happened on tv..this is soo unacceptable? hello have u ever watched family guy..disgusting jokes..but its funny becuz..ITS SUPPOSED TO BE..its a joke not to be taken seriously ! And its a late night show becuz the jokes are inappropriate so fuck relaxx lol

  44. 244

    In my opinion, Sarah Palin is obviously not much of a mother if she's letting her kids get pregnant. JUST SAYIN'.

    Letterman was making a JOKE. Please tell me, who does not understand the meaning of the word? He was attempting to be funny. Obviously, the protestors have no sense of humor, are women's rights activists, and big fans of Sarah Palin.

    They just want something to complain about, what else is new.

    damn it was just a joke! what is wrong with everyone these days? we have more important stuff to worry about. and besides if this same joke would have been about jamie lynn spears none of them would have even cared.

  46. 246

    Letterman's not funny anyway…

  47. 247

    Re: hellojessiUnfortunately, you and I and a select few actually "get" it. It wasn't okay about Chelsea either. I'm sick of the implication that because I've studied Palin, and as a mother and a woman am incredibly disgusted by Letterman's remarks, that I "must" be a Republican wingnut or whatever. I side with sanity and logic. People bring up arguments that have NOTHING to do with anything of this topic as reasons for being hateful, rude, crude, crass and downright mean. I was like 12 when Rush made his comments, I didn't even know who he was. Imus made no racial comments and won a lawsuit. Dude from Seinfeld made a racist comment and was taken to the whipping post. I refuse, because someone else was an asshat, to let it be the reason OTHERS get to be asshats. Hey, at one time, slavery was cool - since it was cool then, let's let it slide now right? Hey, since Matthew Sheppard was cruelly beaten and left to die, it's okay now right? An immigrant was left to die in the streets, beaten by some kids, it's okay now right? Double edged sword with that argument.

  48. 248

    Re: hellojessi – " Elected officials should be shown a certain amount of respect- just as any human being should. And a 62 year old man should have more common sense than to make jokes about children."

    Now that I agree with. I do. I think though that so long as there is some disrespect we should try to be even about it. Individuals shouldn't be insulted nor should they be singled out and saved if others are being insulted. It should either be 100% respect or 100% fairness.

    Crazy but this is what I believe. I don't agree with the idea of Palin being singled out if other folks are made fun of everyday without any MAJOR protest.

    Blago was a male democrat and everything from his hair, to his smile, to his suits to his attitude was made fun of.

    I feel personally insulted as a woman when someone implies that another woman is too sensitive or precious to dare be put in the same situation.

    Re: hellojessi

    "Gov. Palin announced that her 17-year-old unmarried daughter is five months pregnant. And you thought John Edwards was in trouble before! Now he has really done it." — Leno last year, doing a joke similar to the one that got Letterman in trouble.

    Where were the crowds that are lining up at Letterman's office? I guess Palin let that one go because of all the time Leno spent kissing McCain's ass.

  51. 251

    Re: SpiralJetty – Idiot. Her 14 year old did NOT have baby nor did she become pregnant.

  52. 252

    Re: AlexPoland – I know this may be beyond your ability to comprehend, but Bill O'Reilly confronts adults… he doesn't resort to picking on 14-year-olds who's only sin happens to be that she is the daughter of someone he dislikes politically.

  53. 253

    Days after the announcement of Bristol's pregnancy, Conan O'Brien joked, "It's true, John McCain's running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, has revealed that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant. Palin said, 'We should never have introduced her to John Edwards.'" Where was the outrage? Was Conan promoting infidelity with an underage girl?

  54. 254

    From two different Tonight Shows: "Governor Palin announced over the weekend that her 17-year-old unmarried daughter is five months pregnant. Oh, boy, you thought John Edwards was in trouble before, now he's really done it!" AND…"All the Republicans are heaping praise on Governor Palin. Fred Thompson said, as an actor, he could see them making a movie about Sarah Palin and her family. Didn't they already make that movie? I think it was called 'Knocked Up!'"–Jay Leno

    According to expense reports, Sarah Palin charged the state of Alaska over $21,000 for her children to travel with her on official business. In fairness to Gov. Palin, when she leaves them home alone they get pregnant." –Seth Meyers (SNL). Sarah Palin was in a sketch with Meyers a week earlier.

  55. 255

    On October 8, 2008, Sarah Palin walked out on the ice with six year old Piper and 13 year old Willow, before the game, Conan O'Brien said, "Saturday night, Sarah Palin is going to drop the first puck at the Philadelphia Flyers' hockey game. Then Palin will spend the rest of the game trying to keep the hockey players out of her daughter's penalty box."
    Oh, yes he did. You get the outrage…but not a peep then. According to the new "logic", O'Brien was advocating for some really sick stuff.

  56. 256

    David Letterman is a comedian. He makes jokes, sometimes they are funny, and sometimes they miss their mark. Just because it is off color, does not mean he should be fired. There are lots of comedians who use this same type of humor. Kathy Griffin, Roseanne, there are so many raunchy comedians out there saying things that are much worse. David's joke was harmless and a bit naughty, but it was also funny. Sorry, that's just my two cents.

  57. 257

    TEAM LETTERMAN! These whiny little right wingers are all wound up because they have lost their power. What is really scary is that they didn't get the fact that it was BRISTOL he was talking about. He NEVER said ANYTHING about the 14 year old. Bristol is a whore and her mother ought to be shot for not keeping better track of her children. THAT'S the real ISSUE HERE>

  58. 258

    30,000 morons want to stir the pot. Okay but MILLIONS watch and love David every night. Small percentage of whiners. Let them have their days. In the end, David will win. He's incredibly good at what he does.

  59. 259

    Well, I think firing Dave Letterman is a little excessive, he apolgized after all, insincere though I'm sure it was. That being said, why don't they fire him for being not that funny. Team Conan.

  60. 260

    f'ing idiots protesting! he's a comedian/show host, thats what he does for a living..people take shit too seriously

  61. 261

    Re: jjklhutch – This is basically why I believe Palin is faking her outrage for the sake of publicity and sympathy. Did she magically not hear (and there have been MANY) the countless other comedians and entertainers who mocked her and her daughters? Was she magically oblivious to these comments when she was at the height of her time in the media?
    Even now she makes no comments about these past jokes acting as if Letterman was some creepy pervert hiding in the closet. It is part of the reasons why I feel he should not have apologized twice seeing as he was in the company of others who made the same jokes without repurcusions.

    It is also why I consider the lady's on the view to be a bunch of squaking old birds. Get your facts straight first ladies.

  62. 262

  77. 277

    I'm with Letterman all the way! The joke was FUNNY! If the teabagging Palin's hadn't made such a big deal out of it, no one would even remember it. Palin should be thanking God every night for Letterman. He's kept her in the news.

  78. 278

    Ok I am sure that will happen! Like they would really fire him. Besides this is the most publicity he has gotten in a long time. I cant believe that he had to apologize for making a joke. Sure the joke was not the best. But come on already. Leno and the other late night clones all made similar jokes since Palin came into the spot light and they have not been forced to apologize. Why anyone buys into her crap is beyond me. I dont watch late night tv, all those shows suck. I still cant figure out why we need 5 or 6 lame ass late night talk show host.

  79. 279

    OMGness! Everyone needs to shut up and get over it. He made a bad joke and apologized for it! So everyone who makes a mistake needs to be fired?

    Sure they believe in Free Speech - what a joke - now they want to shut David Letterman up!

    I hope the Public is NOT Fooled by this Crap again!!

    Are these people stupid?! Theres always gotta be some sort of bullsh!t about something - Get over it people!! So her daughters a whore and the younger one will be too… uh oh - am I in trouble? *barf*

    David Letterman had a child out of wedlock. Even if his intent was to make a joke about the older Palin daughter, where does he come off making comments about somebody who had a baby without being married when he did exactly the same thing? He was also much older so she at least has an excuse!

    One more thing….why does anybody continue to make jokes about the Palin family anyway? It's time to move on and get new material guys….

    Well, you're a real classy guy…..were you a virgin when you were 18?

    People just like to complain. He apologized, he realized the error of his ways…now it's TIME TO MOVE ON!!!! Get over it! ENOUGH ALREADY!

    Perez - Get over the Palin's and move on! Show some class……

    This coming from the same guy who got his panties in a knot over a pageant queen….

    there is NO WAY Letterman should be fired. There is nothing wrong with making a joke like that bout a LEGAL ADULT when she has put herself in the public spotlight by becoming an abstinence spokesperson. Public figures know late night jokes come with the territory. Letterman is a good guy and normally keeps his routine clean… so why after such a long history of great television should CBS fire him, because the Palin family wants a little more attention? Nope.

    Dear god, what is wrong with these people? Doesn't anyone remember the terrible things Rush "douchebag" Limbaugh said about Chelsea Clinton? Why is it that there are protests over a bad, inappropriate joke, but no protests over what an idiot Sarah Palin is? Hmmm

  96. 296

    it's not Iran, so they're allowed to protest — just makes me want to watch Letterman even more

  97. 297

    Now you freaking Gay ass…if Letterman said something about Gays you would be screaming for him to be fired. Same thing with the Blacks..if he said something about them…ie.don imus…NAACP would also be screaming for him to be fired!!!

    Come on people…its called FREEDOM OF SPEECH! Look at the shit Perez gets away with! Letterman thought he was referring to the of age daughter and big freakin deal. The reason she is so pissed is because its probably true that her daughters are little sluts. YES I SAID IT!

  99. 299

    I do not agree in anyway. And knowing CBS, They will def be not firing A money horse like David Letterman anytime soon! People should just get over it! It was nothing like the comment that Imus made. It was a joke, and people or watch and/or are guests on his show know what types of jokes and comments he will make. She appeared on the show, so she was in for it! and to the Idiot leahy, her daughter is not 14, she's grown now, and she cant handle the heat that she has brought on herself!

    I was a huge Dave fan until his comments. I have a Daughter and Son of my own. Once you are a parent, comments like this stike a major cord. Dave is a parent as well and should have known better. He meant the 14 year old girl not the 18 year old as he stated the day after. Do you really think Dave did not know that is was just the 14 year old with her. Dave is well connect and knows all of that. He was insinuating that the 14 year old was sexually active as her sister was before 18 years of age. Just disgusting!
