Not only will The Douchebag not be fired from TV Guide Canada according to his editor who is sending form letters to everyone who emailed her about his antics this weekend.

I am surprised I got an e-mail back from her. I was wondering if anyone else e-mailed her and got the same response. Disappointed in her response really but here it is:
Thank you for your email on behalf of Nelson Branco's recent Twitter comments. TV Guide Canada is disappointed by Mr. Branco's recent behaviour, and his comments do not reflect TV Guide Canada's views.
As a result of his poor judgment, Mr. Branco has deleted his TV Guide related twitter account, @SudsReport, and any future commentary or views under any unrelated accounts he may or may not create should be considered strictly his own.
Mr. Branco has been a valued contributor to TV Guide Canada's soaps and primetime pages for over four years, and he continues to be one of the sole advocators in this dying industry.
He will continue contributing to TV Guide Canada, and work with his editors to provide insightful and unprecedented coverage of the soaps industry both on screen and behind the scenes.
Thank you for taking the time to write to us.
Editor in Chief
Tv Guide Canada
BTW, Nelson did not acknowledge what he did this weekend on twitter in his column today.
According to former DOOL and Y&R writer, Tom Casiello, "someone" which is safe to assume is Nelson, sent him a threatening email Sunday night because of his tweets about Nelson, and for Tom retweeting and responding to @F_Nelson_Branco, a parody Nelson twitter account. So, it's ok for Nelson to call Kristian Alfonso "anorexic" "a bitch" "hair model" "bad actress" and for insinuating that Kristian got actors fired on Days of our Lives. So I guess "free speech" only applies to Nelson, and not anyone who speaks truthfully about him.
