While flipping through some channels, I noticed that Encore TV was about to air a few episodes of one of my favorite '80s sitcoms Diff'rent Strokes. Since I am a socially media geek, I popped open Twitter and promptly commented on my discovery. My good friend Jeff Kolb and I ended up having a brief exchange.
To be honest, I had completely forgotten about that conversation until my Twitter feed started to blow up Sunday morning/afternoon.
Yes, it was a retort from Tom Arnold himself which started the onslaught.
Not much diff in 2015 except your observations/jokes R 25 yrs lamer. I've done 10 shows & U mock the one good one. https://t.co/1cvPLDvdbK— Tom Arnold (@TomArnold) October 18, 2015
@TomArnold @Brad_Carlson @jpkolb The dickish way he refers to Roseanne as "wifey" was the worst part😒 Grow up asshole— Kristy Bousquet (@kristy_bousquet) October 18, 2015
@TomArnold @kristy_bousquet @Brad_Carlson @jpkolb prob lives in a basement somewhere, watching porn in Betamax, on a portable tv— Dave Holmes (@CollinTaylorInc) October 18, 2015
.@Brad_Carlson has offended Tom Arnold fans, which apparently exist, and I am getting tagged in their angry replies. I love Twitter.— Jeff Kolb (@jpkolb) October 18, 2015
@beckbud @Brad_Carlson @jpkolb there are a lot of really cool people in Minnesota and then there's these guys (Lived there 83-88 loved it)— Tom Arnold (@TomArnold) October 18, 2015
To think this all spawned from a lazy Thursday evening where I partook in some really lame television show.
