Fox News Hashtag #OverIt2014 Backfires Big Time

Fox News closed the year with a bang on Tuesday when its morning show “Fox & Friends” tried to start a hashtag and instead invited a wave of Internet bile.

The hashtag in question was #OverIt2014. Asking viewers to tweet what they hope to leave behind in 2014, the anchors offered some examples, including “pretzel buns” and “attacks against Christianity.”

The Internet had other ideas.

Not since Fox contributor Ann Coulter left herself wide open for parody in mocking #BringBackOurGirls have conservatives seen such a boomerang effect on social media.
