Jon Lovitz of "Saturday Night Live" fame took to his Twitter to defend remarks he'd made about President Obama being an "f**king a**hole" for "saying the rich don't pay their taxes" during an episode of "The ABCs of SNL" with filmmaker Kevin Smith. 

After the video aired on YouTube Lovitz was hit with a backlash of criticism for his views, which he defended on Twitter.

He started out by giving his haters a lashing, saying "Because I criticized the President, it's news? Last I checked, he's President, not King! This is America! Freedom of Speech. what's the bfd" 

Do you think it was such a big deal to critisize the President?
