It’s become a Twitter battle (if there even is one) between a one-time teen heartthrob and one of the funniest comedians of all-time.
Scott Baio, best known as “Charles ‘Chachi’ Arcola” on ‘Happy Days’ and “Charles” on ‘Charles in Charge,” went after Wanda Sykes through a tweet over her support for former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
This comes after Biden mentioned on a radio morning show, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Here is Sykes responding back to Baio, who wondered why she would still support Biden after that remark:
You can see she is still working, and doing more than him at this moment.
As for the tweet that started this latest “feud,” Baio targeted Sykes on May 22, and even name-dropped Roseanne Barr, whom Sykes briefly worked for on that short-lived ‘Roseanne’ revival for ABC back in 2018.
Talk about hitting below the belt.
Regarding Sykes and ‘Roseanne,’ that union did not end very well.
In 2018, Sykes resigned from her position as a head writer for ABC’s reboot of Roseanne after its star tweeted racist insults about Barack Obama’s former adviser Valerie Jarrett. In the tweet, Barr labeled Jarrett as a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes, writing, “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
Barr would blame her blunder on taking the Ambien pill, yet her show was cancelled soon after. It has since been spun-off as ‘The Conners.’
Now back to Biden, he would apologize for his comments, saying he “should not have been so cavalier,” and that he does not take the African-American community for granted.”
Sykes has issued another tweet in response to Biden’s remark:
