Michael Ian Black blames Dana Loesch for Mike Cernovich unearthing his old tweets

After unearthing dozens of old tweets of Hollywood writer/director James Gunn, provocateur Mike Cernovich has set his sights on a new target, comedian and Twitchy regular Michael Ian Black:

Wow. This is quite a comedown from James Gunn. Mike, we’ve had this conversation before. There’s a qualitative difference between a comedian making jokes – even offensive jokes (me)- and somebody being charged with rape in 2003 (you). https://t.co/b5U7ITKkU7

Some examples of Black’s “jokes”:

I’m trying to get in touch with my inner child molester.

But then Black blamed Dana Loesch for some reason because Cernovich dug up his old tweets, although he admits that he “can’t prove it”:

Today, right wing Twitter came after me out of the blue (again) because they took offense to a bunch of jokes I’ve made over the years (again). Why now? I suspect it has something to do with me asking @dloesh all week about Russian money-laundering at the NRA, but can’t prove it.

Dude, just stop digging:

Here’s what’s true: 1. I make offensive jokes. I’ve been doing it for 30 years and although I’ve slowed down in recent years and gotten more reflective about it, I still do it. Like when I say I do butt stuff with your mom. I don’t *really* do butt stuff with your mom.

I don’t even think I know your mom. I make jokes about playing in the NFL. Guess what? I never played in the NFL. I could go on. The point is, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the week I go hard after the NRA for being a mob front for Russia, I get this coordinated attack.
