Bill Maher: Jesus Just F*cked Tim Tebow Bad

Twitter continues to swell with a flood of complaints against comedian Bill Maher in response to a particularly scathing Tweet the outspoken television host made about Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow during Christmas Eve's Broncos-Bills showdown, NBC Sports reports.

Tebow had just thrown his fourth interception of the game (the Broncos eventually lost 14-41) when Bill Maher Tweeted to his roughly 872,000 followers:



 
Bill Maher ✔
 @billmaher

Wow, Jesus just f__ed TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler "Hey, Buffalo's killing them"
 
Choosing not to respond to the crack, or perhaps unaware of it, Tebow's post-game Tweet made no mention of Maher:



 
Tim Tebow ✔
 @TimTebow

Tough game today but what's most important is being able to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas everyone GB

 
Others however, decided to take Maher head-on. The Tweet spurred a huge reaction on Twitter from the many conservatives and Tebow fans who were outraged by the outspoken atheist. Eric Bolling of Fox News shot back at Maher with the Tweet:

 @ericbolling

Bill Maher is disgusting vile trash. I can't even repeat what he just tweeted about Tebow..on Christam Eve. #straight to hell Bill
 



Some fans are even calling to boycott Maher by canceling their subscriptions to HBO, the channel which airs Maher's show "Real Time with Bill Maher," Fox News reports.

It remains to be seen whether the Maher backlash will stem the recent tide of Tebow-lampooning, which often pokes fun at the quarterback's religious ardor. Tebow has been vocal about his Christian values, famously starring in a controversial pro-life Superbowl commercial while he was still in college. Upon entering the NFL, his in-game ritual of kneeling on the field and praying to God inspired the popular Internet meme "Tebowing." The past few months have seen both sketch on Saturday Night Live and an article in The Onion.

Will Maher reprise his controversial tweet during next week's Broncos game? Either way he plays it, and whether the Broncos win or lose, they'll still win the AFC West title and earn the No. 4 seed.

It takes a lot for me to find something offensive, and Mr. Maher definitely crossed that line IMO.

But that's his schtick, so it's not all that surprising.

I believe karma is from the Buddist or Hindu religion

last i checked Bill Maher is a comedian. A comedian that makes jokes about religion and politics. Not as clever as George Carlin, but they share same basis for many of their jokes. I guess its Ok because Carling didnt have a TV show dedicated to it?

I guess George Carlin had it coming?

It's kinda funny how people get offended by things that really don't personally attack them

I don't find that offensive to me personally, but I don't think Maher was funny there at all.   Then again, I rarely think he's funny.

I understood it and I pity him and all those who think comments like this are funny. What is funny, sad actually, is that we have to tip toe around race, ethnic backgrounds, illegal aliens, alternative life styles and such but when it comes to Christianity, well let the dogs out and drop the barriers so we can all have a good laugh. Talk about your double standards. But I bear maher no animosity, he knows not what he does. One day he will.
