Congrats, NFL replacement referees: You’ve brought America together … in contempt of you all! Celebs, politicos, journos. You name it. From Lil Wayne and Lebron James to Rob Lowe and Brit Hume, they’re arm in arm tonight, across the spectrum, trashing the refs. UNITY!

I'm not watching nfl football anymore until the refs are bak. This is krazy

They shouldn't have let those Footlocker employees be NFL refs.

These replacement refs gotta go man!! Packers just got game took from them. I LOVE NFL football to much to see this type of work.

— LeBron James (@KingJames) September 25, 2012

I hope the real refs use this debacle to turn the screws on the league. Don't fold guys!! Stick it to em. #NFL

The baseball bloggers, MSM journos, right-wingers, & left-wingers in my feed are all united tonight in hating the NFL refs.

Terrible roughing the passer call reverses interception by Packers. QB was running, tackled as he threw.

— Brit Hume (@brithume) September 25, 2012

Another bad call against Packers. Defensive pass interference called on DB on a play where the receiver was all over his back.

Just. Terrible. MT @Kimsfirst Another bad call against Packers. DPI called on DB on a play where the receiver was all over his back.

@baseballcrank End times.

— Tom McCammon (@TomMcCammon) September 25, 2012

Nah. According to this astute Twitter user, End Times would be when everyone joins in calling out the biased referees … of the so-called mainstream media.

@Kimsfirst everyone and there mama calls out the refs but very few call out the media.

We’ll keep calling foul.
