"You gotta be f***ing kidding me," responded former Breitbart spokesperson Kurt Bardella, "you're rewarding the guy who set the dangerous precedent of openly and flagrantly lying to the American people every single day from behind the WH Podium ... shame on you!"
"The Apprentice & its cover-up enabled Trump's rise. Enough of this normalizing fascism BS that's threatening, hurting & killing people in real life," responded Jon Cooper, a former Obama campaign co-chair.
"Sean Spicer is CURRENTLY a Sr Advisor to America First PAC, a pro-Trump super PAC," said Scott Dworkin. "ABC and DWTS are basically helping Trump and the GOP raise money. Disgusting."
"F*** Spicer and every single other willing participant in that administration," said another verified user. "Boycott any company/event/entertainment that's willing to overlook their complicity."
Newsweek reported that the "Boycott DWTS" was trending nationally after the news broke about Spicer's participation.
