From Lil Wayne to Brit Hume: Twittersphere united against replacement football referees; Updated

Congrats, NFL replacement referees: You’ve brought America together … in contempt of you all! Celebs, politicos, journos. You name it. From Lil Wayne and Lebron James to Rob Lowe and Brit Hume, they’re arm in arm tonight, across the spectrum, trashing the refs. UNITY!

Nah. According to this astute Twitter user, End Times would be when everyone joins in calling out the biased referees … of the so-called mainstream media.

We’ll keep calling foul.
