Tina Fey’s Angry Internet Commenters Actually Exist
film ^ | January 12th, 2009 | Peter Sciretta

Posted on 01/12/2009 6:08:16 AM PST by redk

During her acceptance speech during tonight’s Golden Globes, Tina Fey made some time to tell some of her harsh “internet critics” to “suck it.” The bit was pretty funny (you must watch it here).

“If you ever start to feel too good about yourself, they have this thing called the Internet! You can find a lot of people there who don’t like you! I’d like to address some of them now! BabsonLacrosse, you can suck it. DianeFan, you can suck it. Cougar-Letter, you can really suck it ’cause you’ve been after me all year. And to my husband, Jeff, I love you. Thank you very much!”

Well apparently Gawker did some research and found out that those “anonymous internet critics” Fey mentioned on stage, believe it or not — those users are actual posters on the LA Times’ Envelope Awards website.

One advantage of imitating others is that it doesn’t require an original thought.

I bet any bad things these people may have said about Tina Fey, paled in comparison to the things people said about Sarah Palin on the Internet. And I say this, as a person who is not a “Palin-Bot.”

The one good thing about leftists, especially ‘celebrities’, is their extremely thin skin. If internet comment spam is all it takes to crack them, then maybe it’s time to really show them the goods.

I’m sure she will be remembered, just like what’s-her-name on SNL who boycotted the show because Andrew Dice Clay was performing. And who then left the show never to be heard from again.

BabsonLacrosse, you can suck it.

Goodness, how long did she have to ponder to come up with such an impressive comeback? I am always so disappointed by such lame answers to criticism.

What did Sasha Cohen say about Madonna? I saw part of his speech and he was booed by the audience.

The funny part about it is these people said nothing NOTHING personal about her at all. They called her out for not being as talented as others who are up for the awards she keeps winning and then one of them even said the Palin imitation is getting old.

As I suspected this twit can dish it out but is far to insecure to handle return fire. And from internet posters no less.

No, that was the really tall brunette that was on the same time as Victoria was.

Can't remember her name now, but she turned out to be some sort of feminazi guerilla.

No Victoria Jackson left the show - and the business - when she got married.

I think Norah Dunn was the cast member who got upset about The Diceman.

There is a show here in Canada that she is on about working for NBC with Alex Baldwin and it is a show about how to be a tight ass democrat with anorexic and melt downs issues and a cast of two dimensional stereotypes. It's hopped up and hyped up and predictably trying to be fashionable lest anybody notice. It's as nauseating as the day as long — in Canada the days have been extremely long — and the TV station that airs it is now is actually very much in tune to this fluff piece.

Sarah Palin is beautiful, inside and out.

Tina Fey is ugly, inside and out.

Hey Tina, I’d tell you to jump off the Santa Monica pier, but I’m opposed to polluting the Pacific Ocean.

I dunno, I don’t watch the show. It’s about as funny as toenail fungus. And unfortunately, just as persistent.

Prove her right? Right about what exactly?

If Sarah was as thin skinned as poor little Tina she would have had a breakdown before the convention.

I guess Tina just lost out on the Ann Coulter award for thick skin. Not much of a writer is she?

Said the recession was hitting everyone even Madonna who lost another assistant. I forget exactly the punch line, but the assistant was Guy Ritchie.

Victoria Jackson

2008 election
Jackson spoke out against Democrats during the 2008 general election campaign, particularly presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama and Minnesota U.S. senatorial candidate Al Franken. In October, she appeared in a National Republican Senatorial Committee ad with other celebs poking fun at Franken, then followed up with an interview on The O’Reilly Factor, where she called Obama a “communist.” [2] In the weeks leading up to the presidential election, she also called Obama “marxist”, “racist” and said he “resembles the anti-christ”.

When Obama won the election, she wrote on her blog: “Voters in our last election did not base their decision on facts or knowledge, but on hype, emotion, peer pressure, and racial fervor. It didn’t help that the liberally biased media blocked Americans access to the truth. (Fox News is the only news show that even resembles journalism.)”

She said "suck it" like that was a bad thing.

But aren't celebs supposed to be homo-promo?

Her comments make it sound as though homosexuality is not a good thing.< /sarcasm >

I guess the only reason I find it amusing is I see terrible things about all kinds of celebrities said on the Internet everyday. Far far far worse things than what was said in those posts about Tina. Yet the only major celebrity (that I'm aware of) to publicly whine about it just shot to stardom by spending two months making fun of someone else. Someone else whom by all accounts she was nice to when face to face.

Hey, Victoria Jackson is one of the few “self-outed” Conservatives in Hollywood. Give her props, not flak.

Reminds me of “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” when they went after they’re Internet critics including the poster that called them “clown shoes”! They didn’t go after “Darth Randall”.

She was blessed that with a lot of makeup and props, she could imitate the most interesting person during this election.
I didn't see where she thanked God for giving her those features that made her famous.

BTW, what kind of talent does she have to copy someone else’s look and read lines written by comic writers?

She should have asked folks to vote for Palin so she (FEY) would still have a reason to be in the limelight.
