Jane Pitt, the mother of actor Brad Pitt, was the target of hateful and misogynistic tweets from pro-abortion liberals after the Springfield News-Leader published her letter supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Twitchy reported Friday.
Pitt, a pro-life Christian, wrote:
Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney’s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama — a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.
Gawker painted her as a "loon," but liberals on Twitter went overboard.
"Time for the Left’s self-proclaimed arbiters of tolerance to teach her a lesson with their hateful, misogynist slurs and death wishes," the staff at Twitchy wrote.
"Brad Pitt's mom, die," wrote "sandy kownacka."
"Brad Pitt's mother can go f**k herself," Patrick Sandberg added.
"Brad Pitt's mom sounds like a bit of a c**t," Twitter user "digital host" wrote.
Twitchy reminded readers that when Obama reverted to his 1996 position supporting gay marriage, liberals on Twitter said those who do not support the President over his gay marriage position should kill themselves.
"Everybody that said y'all aren't voting for Obama bc he believes in gay marriage kill yourself, he believes that love is love not gay mrrge! (sic)," one user wrote.
"[Y]ou're not a fan of Obama anymore because he wants to legalize gay marriage? [H]ere, take this gun & kill yourself, (sic)" another wrote.
"To anyone who just said 'Obama declared a war on marriage' - kill yourself. That's not a joke. Please kill yourself. Thanks," wrote "Shaggy."
"If you're opposed to gay marriage, kill yourself, you're a bad person," another person opined.
"Once again, the Left’s revolting intolerance of conservative free speech is on display for all the world to see. Let’s hope Jane Pitt answers with even louder, bolder speech," Twitchy added.
A post at Buzzfeed noted that in 2008, Brad Pitt donated $100,000 to fight California's Proposition 8. While he may differ with his mother's point of view, he still thinks highly of her.
"She's very, very loving — very open, genuine, and it's hilarious because she always gets painted in the tabloids as a she-devil. There's not an ounce of malice in her. She wants everyone to be happy," the actor said of his mother in January.
