Shawn Martini at the Colorado Farm Bureau learned the hard way that joking about natural disasters rarely ends well (see former Chicago Bears great Dan Hampton for another recent example). I have no idea what Shawn’s original Tweet was (it has since been deleted), but here is the string of apologies he has offered for it so far:

@RealPRMedia I see that now. My apologies.

@zarchasmpgmr @stevehirschhorn @HKoren @tweet_fail@pookla @wcwestfeldt @5280PRGal @hardcorps80204 My apologies. The joke was in poor taste.

@hardcorps80204 @milesbeyond @mackaymiller @tedrock et. al. My joke abt the #boulderfire was in very poor taste. My sincerest apologies.

@RealPRMedia Thank you for your understanding. I do apologize 4 the comment. Very poor taste on my part. My prayers R w/ everyone affected.

@thegoodhuman Very much agreed. Please accept my sincerest apologies.

Update: Here is Shawn’s original Tweet:

Yeah, ignorant jackassery will get you into trouble every time, Shawn. You’ve been drinking too much of the clodhopper Kool-Aid about climate change; might want to do some homework using the tons of credible resources that are readily available.
