Titus Ashby is an adorable boy who makes trick basketball shots. He’s appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Show and in viral videos with celebrities such as Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum. Titus’ father, Joseph Ashby, is a radio host and AmericanThinker.com contributor.

An article at Deadspin titled “Everything That Should Die in 2014″ names “The Trick Shot Titus phenomenon” as one thing they’d like to see disappear in the coming year. But it doesn’t stop there, because the article contends Joseph Ashby is exploiting his son, whom the Deadspin dirtbags deride as “Honey Boo Boo with a jump shot.”

Tom Ley, a Deadspin staff writer, dumpster-dove through Ashby’s Twitter history and retweeted some things from the past couple of months to “out” the father of Trick Shot Titus as a Christian conservative:

Those sentiments were enough to earn Ashby the label “awful”:

Ashby responded appropriately, considering the irony:

Yes, if we didn’t know better we’d think it was Ashby who referred to a two-year-old boy as “Honey Boo Boo with a jump shot.”

How did Ashby get a radio show, anyway? Because of his trick-shot son?

Another failed assumption.

Heh.

Here’s Ashby’s discussion with another tolerant lib:

Being a conservative sometimes adds to the fuss.
