“MSNBC has cut ties with contributor Sam Seder, allegedly over a tweet he wrote in 2009.
Seder’s contract isn’t up until February but the network is so upset over the tweet that he will not be making any more appearances.
The Twitter account for his show Majority Report tweeted out a link to the initial report on the news.
Just just how bad is it? Well, it’s a rape joke involving a young girl and notorious film director Roman Polanski.
“Don’t care re Polanski, but I hope if my daughter is ever raped it is by an older truly talented man w/ a great sense of mise en scene,” he wrote in 2009.
Seder, however, took to his podcast to accuse members of the alt-right, namely Sebastian Gorka and Pizzagate “guru” , of conducting a smear campaign, noting that the original tweet was sarcastic, meant to lampoon liberals who continue to defend artists they admire long after they have been accused of doing awful things. It must be noted that 2009 saw a major push by members of the creative community to allow Polanski to return to America.
“This smear involves the willful misinterpretation of a tweet that I posted in 2009,” he said. “I will never be ashamed of criticizing those who would excuse the predation of women or girls.”
Seder also attempted to explain why he deleted the tweet last week, after noticing that and others had begun ceaselessly retweeting it as part of their smear campaign.”
