Fox Denies 'Jesus Hates Obama' Ad Superbowl Air

%name Fox Denies 'Jesus Hates Obama' Ad Superbowl AirPut away your dong shots, A.J. Daulerio–that nonsense is for the regular season. It’s Superbowl time, time to summon the energy to talk about television commercials with a fervor inconceivable throughout the rest of the calendar year.

And we’re off to a good start. Fox has rejected a commercial from anti-Obama tee-shirt company JesusHatesObama.com, reports The Huffington Post.

The commercial involves bobble heads of Jesus and President Obama.

The site was founded by “conservative comedian” Richard Belfry. It reads:

“Do we really believe that Jesus hates Obama? Of course not! However, we do believe in freedom…as in the freedom to make fun of the Obama administration with novelty t-shirts…our products may be a joke but so are the policies of this administration.”

We wish Fox had called their bluff, and been like oh yeah hilarious guys, you’re the next Budweiser frogs, that’ll be $3 million. Collar tugs ensue, right?

Oh nevermind, they had “financial backing from private investors,” reports CNN.

Congrats on the free publicity, tee shirt guys.
