Comedian Michael Rapaport was slammed on social media for a joke he made about the Thai soccer team who was imprisoned in a cave for more than two weeks.

The “Atypical” star, podcaster, and Fox Sports reporter tweeted on Monday: “I have not seen that someone is trying to bring a Thai boy from a hole this frantically since I walked in on Kevin Spacey in the men’s room at Chuckie Cheese.” The comedian wrote the quote an “Anonymous Comedian 7/9/2018.”

The joke clearly was a hit on “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey, and the numerous sexual misconduct allegations that have emerged over the last year. Spacey was fired from the “House of Cards”, and was replaced in the Ridley Scott film “All the Money in the World” by the actor Christopher Plummer.

Some social media users slammed the comedian for his joke.

“That’s the kind of tweet that gets you a D-list actor trying to stay relevant,” one person tweeted.

“Maybe Rapaport jealous of REAL heroes? What is harder, telling someone, “that is the effing wrong door’, or take a dip in the dark treacherous caves? Tough one,” another person wrote.

On Tuesday, the Thai Navy SEALS announced that all 12 guys on the team and the coach were rescued from the cave.
