Finebaum you are an idiot. Even the AL.com writer understood the context. Just ridiculous that someone would try to blow that comment into something offensive to 9/11 victims.

Ditto. The turd of a man is intentionally exploiting an otherwise tremendous human being for clickbait purposes. Thatís far more despicable than some innocuous statement by Coach Swinney.

I truly hope that Dabo doesnít succumb and form a public apology to these self-important clickbait tards.

Dabo meant nothing disrespectful in his quote. He was just trying to be funny and Finebaum knows Dabo enough to know that. The PC police just need to stop. They get offended by everything.

Did Dabo make any direct references to 9/11 that could be deemed offensive to the victims?

Hereís the exact quote:
ďI am kinda like Osama Bin Dabo. I have to navigate my way through the caves and back channels to make my way through Alabama these days. They arenít as happy to see me. But itís all good. Itís a good problem.Ē

Heís not comparing himself to Bin Laden the monstrous person. Heís jokingly comparing himself to the need to stay out of sight. You seriously need to lighten up. MUCH MORE OUTLANDISH is spoken on national TV during Comedy Central roasts. Case in point, comedian Pete Davidson lost his father to 9/11 when he was 7. Daboís joke doesnít hold a candle to the ones by roasters about Peteís dad [see below, and thereís a video of it at the link].

Yup. Some people canít get through a day without their cup of coffee. Some need a daily glass of wine. And some canít make it through any 24 hour period without requiring SOMETHING to complain about, even if it needs to be manufactured. Their lives arenít complete w/o some sort of drama constantly surrounding it. Miserable way to live.

This is really simple.
While I was not offended, I can understand that some might be. And yes I know he meant no offense, but one canít make a joke with certain things... OBL, Hitler, etc...
Iím not at all the PC police, but I understand things you May say jokingly or not in a group of likeminded people, doesnít always go over well in a public forum.

This was just a poor choice of words
