Jaws Actor Richard Dreyfuss’ Son Made A Fat Joke On Twitter And It Did NOT Go Well

Jaws actor Richard Dreyfuss’ son, Ben, wants the world to know he ain’t interested in dating fat people.

So, in case you woke up Saturday morning wondering if you had a shot with the 36-year-old, you better step on a scale first and hope last night’s alcohol didn’t stick!

Ben Dreyfuss angers Twitter mob with fat joke

Seems like a pretty ‘whatever’ tweet, right? I mean, who cares …

Just kidding! Everyone does, because it’s the year 2023 and you CANNOT make that joke. Nope. Doesn’t fly today, Benny Boy.

The Twitter mob came after Dreyfuss almost immediately, and the comedian didn’t exactly help himself. In fact, our guy doubles down and draws his line in the sand.

What a WILD twist we got in that last tweet. A lot to digest there, starting with the obvious – which is what many on Twitter pointed out.

“Who weighed 130, maybe 140 pounds.”

Now, we don’t know how tall this cowgirl from Long Island was, so maybe the math adds up. That being said, 130-140 pound people aren’t usually called fat, so I’m not sure we can trust Ben from here on out.

If that’s the baseline, we’re all fat.

I mean, I already knew I was, but this seals it for me. I weighed 130 back in middle school, and that was before discovering Busch Light.

Anyway, Ben’s tweet went viral, pissed the mob off and sent Twitter into a frenzy. Not tough to do nowadays, but it’s still a sight to behold whenever it happens.
