As Twitchy told you, actor-director Mark Duplass kicked a liberal hornet’s nest when he encouraged his fans that they follow Ben Shapiro. The mob ultimately convinced Duplass to not only delete his tweet, but to apologize for even suggesting that Ben Shapiro isn’t evil made flesh:

That’s great, Mark, but before you go patting yourself on the back, Shapiro’s got some bad news for you:
So in 24 hours I apparently went from being a person with good intentions to a racist sexist bigot. Twitter toxifies any attempt to cross the aisle. There's no conservative Mark could have recommended who wouldn’t receive the same blowback. https://t.co/JEizw69eFH

Exactly. Feel better now, Mark?

Not only did Duplass serve up his own scalp on a silver platter, but he effectively cut himself off from another shot at rising above petty partisanship.
But hey, at least Duplass can sleep peacefully tonight knowing that he’s on his way to getting back into the good graces of people like this:
No Ben, your reputation stands where it ever stood.

Actually, you've always been a racist, sexist bigot.

Lol bro. Your a racist nerd.

Ben, no one cares that the real fact that youre racist and being called out for it hurts your feelings

I mean sure, if you ignore most of the things you've ever tweeted, said, or written as a "journalist", you're an okay guy. But let's not kid ourselves: you've ALWAYS been a racist, sexist bigot.
Hope that clears things up.

Oh Ben, you know you've been a racist sexist bigot for a lot longer than 24 hours

Bwahahahaha! Come on… you were never "a person with good intentions." I know you're full of crap, but let's stay somewhat in reality here. pic.twitter.com/TVT2qepFLY

Yeah, Mark. You really “need to be more diligent and careful” not to piss those people off.
This is so pathetic. What a sad reflection of the political environment we are in right now.

I’m liberal-ish and this is totally dumb. Sometimes Ben’s tweets i agree with, sometimes they make me really mad. But then I think about why and what that means for my own political conclusions and actions. Make dialogue ok. It is ok.
