On Memorial Day, instead of honoring our fallen military heroes, the History Channel is airing a “Pawn Stars” marathon.

Maybe, like MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, History Channel programming directors are “uncomfortable” honoring the heroic men and women who sacrificed their lives so that others might live free from tyranny and oppression. The Twitterverse is disgusted.

Hey, Chuck Grassley, surely this calls for a tweet or two?

UPDATE:

After a flood of criticism, the History Channel Twitter feed acknowledged Memorial Day:

But the Memorial Day programming lineup was indeed an all day “Pawn Stars” marathon.
