A Christmas Eve tweet from comedian Bill Maher that poked fun of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow’s religious beliefs has prompted calls for a boycott of HBO, the home to Maher’s show "Real Time," reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.
As previously reported, Maher tweeted about the Broncos’ loss to the Buffalo Bills, noting, "Wow, Jesus just f—-d #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler ‘Hey, Buffalo’s killing them.’”
Maher’s tweet caused some Twitter users to respond with the idea of boycotting HBO, according to the story. Maher has previously had calls for his ouster from HBO, such as in July, when he talked about "hate sex" with two Republican presidential candidates, and in 2008 when he made comments about the pope, the story notes.
