As Twitchy readers know, Rob Lowe made a joke about Elizabeth Warren that really ticked off the Left. Apparently mocking her for lying about being a Native American is actually meaner than her taking monies and opportunities meant for a minority group … yeah, it’s dumb.
And it’s the Left so we’re not exactly surprised.
Rob deleted the EVIL JOKE:
I deleted my Elizabeth Warren tweet. It was a joke and some peeps got upset, and that’s never my intention. On the GOOD side: I just got to use the Oxford comma!

Didn’t see the joke?

It’s interesting how they’re angrier at Rob for joking about Lieawatha than they are about the actual lies she told but eh …
Seriously, look at these people:
This isn't your best moment, and that isn't an Oxford comma.

It was a joke?
Holy crap, America has lost its sense of humor.
It was a very bad joke – trump – like really.

OMG NOT PEEPS.
That’s not an apology nor is that an Oxford comma.

Oh, good, Tony Posnanski chimed in … said literally nobody ever.
It seems that you don’t understand jokes, apologies, or Oxford commas.

Imagine going through life with a stick wedged this far up your backside.
All of this being said, there were several tweets to Rob about how he shouldn’t have deleted the joke but the best response we saw was this one from someone of Cherokee heritage:
I’m an actually registered Cherokee Indian from Oklahoma. There was no reason to need to delete it. It wasn’t offensive at all and was pretty funny. What Warren did for years is far more offensive than any joke about it. Also, always use the Oxford comma. Well done.

He GETS it.
Elizabeth Warren deserved this joke and many, many, many more.
