Whether you agree or disagree with his views, Winkler’s 140-character tirade backfired on him in an epic, Jim Carrey kind of way. Most of Fonz’s critics lambasted him for his ignorance of the situation.

Fonz did have his defenders, and he managed to remain a perfect gentleman in the Twitter war that followed his unfortunate comment.
