Michael Rapaport continued to face a backlash Tuesday following his “f**king awful” joke about the Thailand cave rescue of a boys soccer team.

“I haven’t seen someone try to get a Thai boy out of a hole this frantically since I walked in on Kevin Spacey in the men’s room at Chuckie Cheese,” the 48-year-old comedian tweeted Monday to his followers, before attributing the comment to an “Anonymous Comedian 7/9/2018,” according to the Wrap.

The remark was a comment about the disgraced “House of Cards” star who has faced a flood of allegations of sexual misconduct over the last few months.

A few of the comedian’s supporters liked the tweet, but most thought he went way too far. The comments started Monday and went through Tuesday.

One wrote, “F**king awful.”

Another advised Rapaport to, “Delete it. This is weak sauce bro.”

“What the f— is wrong with you,” asked another person.

On Tuesday, the last of the 12 boys from the team — along with their coach — were finally rescued from the flooded cave.
