The controversial rodeo clown banned for life from the Missouri State Fair for wearing a President Obama mask and mocking that a bull should run him down spoke out Monday about the death threats and fallout since the incident.
A Facebook group created Monday for Tuffy Gessling, the rodeo clown who was banned for life from the Missouri State Fair for wearing a President Obama mask during Saturday's bull-riding event, has already gained more than 30,000 supporters who think he has been treated unfairly.
"I didn't do this to do any hating on anyone. I did this to be funny. I did it to be a joke," Mr. Gessling told KCTV. "I didn't think anything more of it than what we've done 15 years ago, 10 years ago, five years ago, when we've done it with Bush, Clinton and Ronald Reagan."
"I've had somebody threaten to run me over. One of them wanted to burn the house down," he added.
