Comedian and talk show host Bill Maher ignited an Internet firestorm on Thursday when he sent out a tweet seemingly supporting Israel’s devastating offensive against terrorists in Hamas.

“Dealing w/ Hamas is like dealing w/ a crazy woman who’s trying to kill u – u can only hold her wrists so long before you have to slap her,” he wrote.

Many people, most of them clearly against Israel, berated the comedian for speaking out against Hamas.
