Fans of Fox News did not care one bit for the conservative network reporting that Los Angeles unveiled “President Barack Obama Boulevard” over the weekend, responding with a slew of racist slurs and attacks on the first black U.S. President.

According to the report that set in motion a flood of vitriol that wouldn’t be out of place at KKK meeting, “On Saturday, thousands gathered for the renaming of Rodeo Road to “President Barack Obama Boulevard,” a 3.5-mile street that runs through the historically black Baldwin Hills-Crenshaw neighborhood.”

As one might expect, the comments on the Fox News website went from zero to racist within minutes.

A sampling below preserved in screenshots before they are deleted or the network shuts the comment section down. Or not.
