As Twitchy told you earlier, Keith Olbermann took it upon himself to unleash the Turkey Tolerance Brigade on a Mississippi hunter who shot a white turkey. According to Olbermann, that Hunter Waltman’s life needs to be “a living hell”:
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

How’s that working out for Waltman? Oh, about as well as you’d expect:
Waltman said he is receiving verbal attacks due to Olbermann’s actions. While no one directly threatened to harm him, some said they hope harm comes his way.
“They text me all kinds of stuff. If he (Olbermann) hadn’t done that, none of this would have happened.”
Waltman said he had never heard of the ESPN commentator and former MSNBC political host prior to Olbermann’s attack on Twitter. Waltman said now he considers Olbermann a threatening individual.
That seems like a pretty accurate assessment at this point. More:
“To tell you the truth, it seemed like a threat to me,” Waltman said. “Make (my) life ‘a living hell?’ That seems like a threat to me. I’d be glad to see him fired. He went overboard.”
Olbermann isn’t being fired as far as we know, so a half-assed tongue lashing will have to suffice.
@espn this is targeted harassment from your employee. You insult your audience by keeping this garbage person on your network.

Sorry, Hunter Waltman. You deserve better.
