‘The Middle’ star Patricia Heaton took to Twitter to rant about the same hot topic that got conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh blasted last week.
Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke testified before Congress in favor of government sponsored birth control. Rush Limbaugh generated his own crap storm when he called her a “slut” and a “prostitute."
Patricia’s tweets were less offensive, but her views mirrored Rush’s. Here are a few of Heaton’s Tweets:
"Hey G-Town Gal: Plz let us also pay for your Starbucks, movie theater tickets and your favorite hot wings combo deal at KFC! Anything else?"
"Hey G-Town Gal: If your parents have to pay for your birth control, maybe they should get a say in who you sleep with! Instant birth control!"
"If every Tweaton sent Georgetown Gal one condom, her parents wouldn’t have to cancel basic cable, & she would never reproduce - sound good?"
Two thoughts on her Tweets: One, I totally imagine her yelling this a la Debra Barone, and two: I had no idea Patricia Heaton had a cute fan base name for her Twitter followers. Good for her.
Okay, okay, yeah--Patricia went off the deep end with those comments. But Heaton then took a chill pill; thought clearly, and then deleted the offensive tweets. From there, she Tweeted on Saturday:
“Mea culpa Sandra! Wasn’t being respectful 2 u re my tweets as I hope people wd b w/me. Don’t like you being dissed -so sorry.”
