Liberal Comedian Tells Trump Voters to Set Themselves on Fire

Liberal comedian Patton Oswalt dialed up the rhetoric on Tuesday with a tweet that appeared to encourage Trump supporters to set themselves on fire.

In responding to a tweet that highlighted Levi Strauss CEO Chip Bergh’s column encouraging business leaders to “take a stand on gun violence,” Oswalt tweeted his hope that “#MAGA ghouls” are wearing their Levis jeans when they burn them.

Oswalt recently made headlines by tweeting that he would withdraw from the upcoming New Yorker Festival because former White House aide Steve Bannon was scheduled to headline the event. Oswalt was joined by fellow comedians Jim Carrey and Judd Apatow in announcing their refusal to participate in the same festival as Bannon.

While Oswalt will likely brush off his incendiary tweet as mere comedy, it does mark an escalation on violent rhetoric on the social media platform.
