One of the first things FishbowlLA heard this morning in connection with the shocking LA Times news about Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s love child was a joke on The Dan Patrick Show that Maria had always assumed the youngster was the Governator’s Twins co-star Danny DeVito.
Variations thereof are popping up all over Twitter. J.D. Crowe, a political cartoonist for Mobile, Alabama’s Press-Register, is getting heavy re-tweet action for his earlier, similar observation. Ditto for New York City YouTube talk show host Billy Eichner.
There is all manner of in-poor-taste DeVito dishing going on right now: will this new Junior cameo in a Twins sequel alongside DeVito and Schwarzenegger?; does this mean that DeVito is the kid’s uncle?; and so on.
DeVito is an active Twitter user, but don’t count on a response to the take-this-love-child-please tweets. He remains a close friend of Schwarzenegger’s and has also likely noted how dangerous it is for a celebrity to wade into the minefield of politically tinged Twitter joke territory.
