CBS Boston contributor David Leavitt tweeted on Tuesday evening, suggesting he wants President-elect Donald Trump to die. This tweet unleashed a firestorm of criticism, with many responses suggesting it would cost Leavitt his job at CBS. (Leavitt contributes information and reviews for restaurants and other tourist destinations in the Boston area.) However, three hours after the tweet was posted, CBS has issued no comment and Leavitt has not deleted the tweet.

Leavitt made several tweets with the #CalmMeDownIn3Words hashtag, including the phrases “We brought beer” and “There’s free wifi.”
We will update this story when Leavitt or CBS makes a response.
