We covered how Rob Schneider got canned from State Farm and their awesome commercials for his anti-vaccination stance. Since no one can go quietly and without some sort of comment, Schneider has struck back by channeling George Washington on Twitter to claim his removal is a free speech issue:
Now you can take from that what you want, but the idea that State Farm removing Schneider from their commercials is a free speech issue is bonkers.
