    Fox News contributor gets death threats for mocking Star Wars fans

    Last month, Fox News contributor Katherine Timpf jokingly insulted fans who were excited for the newest trailer during a guest stint on the late-night political comedy show Red Eye w/ Tom Shillue. Now, Timpf has revealed she’s recieving death threats for her comments.

    “I have never had any interest in watching space nerds poke each other with their little space nerd sticks, and I’m not going to start now,”Timpf shared on the original broadcast. “You people are crazy. You Star Wars people are crazy. Yesterday I tweeted something, and all I said was that I wasn’t familiar with Star Wars because I’ve been too busy liking cool things and being attractive — people threatened my life. You’re not really branding yourself in a way that makes me want to join your life-threatening club.”

    On Tuesday, Timpf wrote a piece published by the National Review, sharing her thoughts on online bullying and noting that she wouldn’t back down in the face of threats.

    “A lot of people are clearly a lot of upset. But guess what? I’m not apologizing,” Timpf wrote. “Why? Because the all-too-common knee-jerk reaction of apologizing for harmless jokes after overblown hysteria is ruining our culture. This political-correctness obsession threatens free speech, and I absolutely refuse to be a part of it.” She took her argument one step further by defending her original comments.

    “Bottom line: If you are telling me that I should die and/or apologize for making a joke about a movie you like, then you are too sensitive,” Timpf wrote. “You have the problem, not me. I’m sick of oversensitive mobs in our overly sensitive society bullying people into saying that they’re sorry over jokes — even if the subject of the joke is something as serious as Star Wars. So, for that reason, I will not apologize.”

    I'm torn between my love of Star Wars and the fact that I'd eat the corn off her mother's shit.

    One of her friends said that when she walks down the street people yell "Eat a sandwich!" at her.
    I guess she's really thin.

    Before she worked at Fox News:

    She made a stupid generalization about Star Wars fans. It's one of the most iconic movie franchises in the history of film. It's not like this underground hardcore nerd thing.
