The Best Twitter Reactions To Nik Wallenda's "SkyWire" Walk Across The Grand Canyon

By Joanna Robinson | Miscellaneous | June 24, 2013 | Comments ()

Oh course, given the extreme nature of the stunt, Wallenda, apparently a man of faith, called out to his maker (and The Discovery Channel executives) several times. I don't blame him; I did the same as an athiest teenager when a bolt off The Zipper roller coaster came caroming into our car. Nonetheless, Twitter had a field day with this odd denim-clad, Jesus-loving man. And that's what Twitter's for. For letting off steam. For poking fun. For trying to crack wise. It's not always fair, but it's usually fun. All I'll say is Philippe Petit is probably pretty happy Twitter couldn't hear what he had to say back in '74.
