They didn’t even spell his name right.
The Daily Wire, run by controversial commentator Ben Shapiro, ran an article unfairly attacking Oswalt and his tweets about Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who had a run in with Donald Trump this week. (If you really want to read it for some reason, here you go).
Here is their tweet-
Patton Oswald Tries Being White Knight Rescuing Gillibrand From Trump. Fail. https://t.co/lbVSU5Tp3t

Like any good comedian, Oswalt responded brilliantly with humour-
Guys, if you're gonna write an article about me being a "failed comedian" maybe don't use a pic of me holding up the Emmy I won for doing comedy? https://t.co/chfCEmGVSK

Take that, The Daily Wire. And Oswalt is spelled with a ‘t’ not a ‘d’, by the way.
The tweet got some excellent responses-
Did they not have access to this Emmy photo? (Still one of the best award photos I’ve ever seen) pic.twitter.com/ALRJNMP34B

I mean seriously, this is one of the FIRST images that comes up when searching your name. Put a little effort in Daily Wire. pic.twitter.com/FpvQQprbsN
