‘Quit Your Crying!’ Bill Burr Lays Into Snowflakes Who Were Triggered When His Wife Flipped Donald Trump the Double Birds
Bill Burr is unbothered by the conservative crybabies trying to cancel him and his wife, Nia Renée Hill, after she was caught on camera disrespecting a certain former president – Burr’s plenty used to snowflakes melting down.
When Hill blasted the two-finger salute at embattled former president Donald Trump during UFC 295, it barely took minutes for right-wing Twitter to declare that Burr, a comedian whom they often claim as their champion in the culture war against woke hypersensitivity, had officially lost the plot and insulted his country on an unforgivable scale. One prominent conservative commentator went so far as to say of Hill’s decision to let her birds fly, “After @billburr’s wife, Nia Renee Hill’s hateful display last night many people are calling for Bill to be cancelled. Remember he’s got to live with this hateful woman — surely that is punishment enough.”
Then, a week after the incident sent shockwaves throughout the manosphere, Burr appeared on The Rich Eisen Show to share his many gripes about the many woes of his favorite sports teams. During the appearance, Burr took the time to make a brief aside praising his wife’s display of dissidence while using as many sports metaphors as possible to make sure his message wouldn’t sail over any meaty heads.
“It's like those Trump guys that are always going, ‘Oh you snowflakes, F your feelings’ and all of that, and then you make fun of Trump and they're like ‘Oh my god, that’s so disrespectful!' It's like you saying, ‘F Joe Biden,’ you can't have it both ways," Burr explained, connecting the caterwauling of New England Patriots fans during their first stretch of consecutive bad seasons in a quarter century to indignant conservatives who can't stand being the butt of the joke. Burr's message to both groups was a concise, "Quit your crying!”
When Eisen asked Burr how Hill's hands have been since they made front-page news a week ago, Burr said, “Oh, they're fantastic! I love my wife, you know where you stand with her! (Donald Trump) walked in the arena, everybody cheered, she gave him the finger, nobody got arrested. That's why this country's great!” Burr added of the evening, “I don't know about you, but I came there to go to the fights, I didn't know I was going to the Republican National Convention!”
Burr then compared Trump's appearance at the event while under intense legal scrutiny to the behavior of O.J. Simpson after he was acquitted in his infamous murder trial, which isn't quite a perfect comparison – there's no way Trump's hands wouldn't fit in those little gloves.
