Twitter has been ablaze for about the last hour since Senator John McCain posted a “joke” that many felt was racist.  Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made an announcement that he himself would like to be Iran’s first astronaut.  McCain tweeted a “joke” (pictured below) comparing the President of Iran to a monkey…yeah.

 

The reaction from Twitter and social media has been swift and obviously the senator has seen a lotta action in his mentions. In a stunning act of hubris and arrogance, he has yet to delete his tweet and in fact, told everyone bombing his mentions and reacting to his “joke” to “lighten up”

We wanna know what YOU think about this; Should everyone “lighten up” and let the Senator compare a world leader, who also happens to be of color, to a monkey, for the sake of a “joke”?
