The Virtue of Being Offensive THE QUESTION: Why are atheists, and most of the loony-left, so easily offended, and find being offended ‘indefensible’ and ‘unacceptable’ when they don’t even believe in any objective morality? Consider the terminal fate these famous people met because they offended atheists and loony-leftists. Justine Sacco Public Director for Ask.com and Match.com, was fired in late 2013 after she made a public relations gaffe of her own. Sacco tweeted, "Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS. Just kidding. I'm white!" just before boarding an 11-hour flight. She was sacked before the plane landed. Megan Fox This rising star was fired as the love interest in the Transformers movie franchise in 2009 after calling the film's director, Michael Bay, "Hitler." But it wasn't Bay that called for her firing; it was fellow director Steven Spielberg who demanded that she be fired. His demand was not ignored.
