Unless you’ve been trapped under something heavy for the past 24 hours, you already know that there was a power outage at the Super Bowl last night (which was held in the Superdome in Nawlins).
Now guess who thought it would be a good idea to tweet snark about the power outage?
This motherfucker right here:
Someone just told me there was fighting going on in the NOLA Superdome. #shocked

That’s right — ol’ Heckuva Job Brownie had the unmitigated gall to tweet Superdome-related snark, and then to defend it on his radio show.
Via Yahoo! News:
“Come see the water line marks on the street signs by my church and see how funny Katrina/Dome tweets are,” Twitter user Duris Holmes wrote.
“I saw them,” Brown replied. “Blanco Nagin refused to look”—a reference to former Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco and former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin.
“Screen shots on iPad,” he later tweeted. “Great for capturing vitriol that’s later deleted from Twitter feed.”
Brown added: “Blocking is quite useful, too.”
It’s not the first time since his FEMA resignation that Brown’s been at the center of a controversy. Last fall, Brown criticized President Barack Obama for responding to Hurricane Sandy too early.
I need Michael Brown to stop talking… forever.
