Sports and political commentator Keith Olbermann bashed large families this week after U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney shared a Christmas photo of his children and grandchildren on social media.
Life News reports:
Olbermann, 62, posted Romney’s photo on his Twitter feed, suggesting the pro-life Republican leader’s family is too large. Romney and his wife, Ann, have five children and 25 grandchildren, according to Ann’s Twitter profile. They are Mormon.
“Somebody gift these people some vasectomies,” Olbermann responded.
His criticism met with a sharp backlash on Twitter as people defended Romney and others with large families.
“What a reprehensible, cruel thing to say about a kind man and his wonderful family,” commenter Stephen Simpson replied. “I feel so sorry for you. I sincerely hope you find love, grace and compassion.”
