A man shot a white turkey in Mississippi, and Keith Olbermann thinks he should pay dearly for it:
It be rare and beautiful so me should kill it.
This pea-brained scumbag identifies himself as Hunter Waltman and we should do our best to make sure the rest of his life is a living hell. And the nitwit clown who wrote this fawning piece should be fired. https://t.co/KdU3Bkg104

Keith’s outrage seems a bit excessive, no?
It’s a turkey, Keith.

Wow what an idiot you are. So a man kills a turkey during a legal season. Here something to think about. It’s white and wasn’t gonna last long anyways. Easy target for an predator!! Why don’t you go back to the shed you tool!

Ruin his life over a turkey? Seems a bit much.

You, my friend, are responsible for more turkey deaths than the guy you are trying to cyberlynch. https://t.co/rD0rqcl8JA

After 21 years it can be revealed…
We actually shot FIVE Boston Market “EAT SOMETHING” commercials. Two made air. One was never edited.

All turkeys are equal, but some turkeys are more equal than others https://t.co/LatoLyBrSi

Guess so. White turkeys are apparently worth one hunter’s life.
@KeithOlbermann I am a fan of yours, however I don’t think ruining someone’s life is the appropriate thing to do to someone who did something they were legally allowed to do. If you want the laws changed ,that’s fine. I’m growing tired of all the public shaming!

Although I myself would have probably let it go, for most hunters it's a dream catch, and I'm fine with that. You should be congratulating him on a one of a kind catch, not urging people to ruin his life for crying out loud.

Jesus. The guy's a hunter, like 11.5 million other people in this country. Attacking someone and threatening to make the rest of his life a living hell because you don't agree with or care to understand why he's doing what he's doing is the real scumbag move.

Yeah … we’re no experts or anything, but “we should do our best to make sure the rest of his life is a living hell” sounds an awful lot like targeted harassment.
This call for harassment of a private citizen should be illegal. https://t.co/Ey5T5goVoV

At the very least, we were told that Twitter frowns upon this sort of thing.
Hello @Twitter, this is a clear violation of the terms of service.
If this isn't a call to organized harassment, the term has no meaning. https://t.co/lGH6UOOyeb

I’m not a fan of hunting, but you are not the world police— or God, for that matter. MYOB and worry about keeping your own stuff together. Mob harassment is against @Twitter policies, as it should be. https://t.co/q5IGPUUV6j

@TwitterSupport this is unacceptable and a violation of your terms!

Inquiring minds wanna know!
It’s also worth noting that Olbermann’s going after the author who wrote the article:
— Greg Pollowitz (@GPollowitz) March 27, 2019
We’d love to hear an explanation.
.@KeithOlbermann says @BrianBroom should be fired for writing this story. What was I thinking? I guess I should have fired our outdoors writer for writing about a hunter killing an unusual turkey during turkey hunting season. https://t.co/3lhrtlwlQO
— Sam R. Hall (@samrhall) March 26, 2019
Keith Olbermann‘s tweet was recklessly irresponsible. Someone with his following needs to understand the possible impact of his words. Telling over 1 million people to make someone’s life a living hell could have seriously dangerous consequences.
— Sam R. Hall (@samrhall) March 27, 2019
Is @ESPN going to do anything about this? Is it in line with their editorial standards for their hosts to send their million+ followers after a random hunter and a local journalist?
