You think Rob Schneider would be able to take a joke since he’s a comedian, but that wasn’t the case on Saturday evening after the ‘Norm of the North’ star let a harmless jab get to him big time.
Schneider’s anger started when legendary comic book creator Gail Simone, who extensive resume includes ‘Secret Six,’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ – she’s also is responsible for bringing back Deadpool to relevance – made a joke about Tim Horton’s being the Rob Schneider of donut shops. Schneider responded by telling his ‘fans’ to “tell her how YOU FEEL.”
God damn it, @Twitter I followed Heather, not Rob Schneider. I want Heather's tweets, not Rob Schneider's! If I wanted to see her replies, I'd go to the "Tweets and Replies" section of her page.
JUST LIST TWEET IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER! pic.twitter.com/21NLjZYQ0U

Shoutout to Schneider for not only searching his own name on Twitter but trying to get his fans to go after Simone because he can’t take a joke. As a Canadian who eats Tim Horton’s quite frequently, I can say the joke is as funny as it is harmless. I know Schneider’s career was made out of bad poop jokes, but it’s still surprising he has got such thin skin.
Schneider’s request backfired too, as an overwhelming majority of people praised Simone.
As it happens, I FEEL like Gail’s work on any given day has more intrinsic value than your entire career.
BUT that’s just me, I’m not a professional comedian who doesn’t seem to be able to take a joke.

I think she’s a goddamn goddess but I’m sure what you’re attempting here is going to go well for you. Solid work, stapler.

I have to say it, Rob. @gailsimone is utterly wrong here. Just completely off-base.
You’re no Tim Horton’s. And I say that as a Dunkin Donuts guy.

@GailSimone, Rob Schneider told me to tell you how I feel. I feel pretty good and you’re swell. Keep up the good work

just so we're clear, siccing your followers on someone because you were name-searching yourself and then found something you didn't like is a REALLY bad look

@KrangTNelson shared some advice with Schneider.
hey dude maybe instead of weepily name searching yourself on twitter all day you could work on some more terrible movies nobody wants to see and no studio will put in theatres. just tryna help

Schneider has since deleted the tweet. He needs to choose his targets, just like his movies roles, a heck of a lot better.
