It seems the Everybody Loves Raymond star, Patricia Heaton is pulling a Rush Limbaugh. Last week Heaton blasted Georgetown’s third year law student Sandra Fluke for proposing that birth control be covered by insurance, the same way Viagra is covered.
Some of the tweets she sent out were:
“If every Tweaton sent Georgetown Gal one condom, her parents wouldn’t have to cancel basic cable, & she would never reproduce – sound good?”
“G-Gal: you’ve given yer folks great gift for Mother’s/Father’s Day! Got up in front of whole world & said I’m having tons of sex- pay 4 it!”
“Hey G-Gal! Change major to Health Sciences, then look at pix of people w/syphilis, gonorrhrea [sic], herpes, and chlamydia! Instant birth control!
“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?”
Heaton has since taken down the disses towards Fluke, and in her first tweet back on Twitter after the weekend she said, “I apologized to Ms. Fluke last week. I may not agree with her views but I didn’t treat her with respect and I’m sorry. I was wrong. Mea Culpa.”
People were originally shocked by Heaton following suit with Limbaugh after he blasted Fluke, but it should not have been that much of a shock when Heaton took Limbaugh’s side.
However, being outspoken is just part of Heaton’s character since she is known for speaking out about her own plastic surgery and Christian views in the past.
The two-time Emmy winner joined the fight to keep Terri Shiavo alive and when her tirade against Sandra Fluke was over she finally tweeted, “Tweatons…I crossed the line w/@SandraFluke. Don’t agree w/her views, but I was not showing Christ’s love.”
It seems her apology was fueled by her faith, do you think it’s sincere?
