11 Tasteless Tweets Regarding Philip Seymour Hoffman's Death

Todd-Spence by Todd-Spence on Feb. 03, 2014

Times like these, the human race is really something special.  Twitter might have some of the "classiest" minds on the internet, and they're in no short supply when it comes to the untimely death of a great talent like Philip Seymour Hoffman.  No, sir.  When anyone passes away from drug abuse, no matter how much of themselves they've given for your enjoyment, it's time to break out the hate-spewing comedy.  So I thought it was my comedic duty to curate and share a few of the more tasteless reactions people have posted from their own Twitter accounts regarding the extremely unfortunate death of Philip Seymour Hoffman.  

If an applauding audience is what they're seeking with these comments, here's their moment to shine.

 

And finally--this tweet.

Why are these people so cruel, makes no sense to me. The man made a bad decision and he paid for it with his life. No need to call him names or be ignorant about it. All these idiots on here act like their perfect angels who never makes any mistakes. All these idiots need to get a life.

People joke about everything, and make fun of everyone.  Yes the guy was a great award-winning actor and yes its very sad that he is now passed over something that takes the lives of so many.  But he did do it to himself, he did it to his family, and there are many resources for help if he wanted it.  It is quite different to see the fact that he was larger and on the drug, so of course that turns into the comical side of things like everyone does with all these other celebrities .. Everyone has their own comments and opinions, and social media is nothing but a constant bitch fest. Who cares, people die each day of overdose, and just because

YOU have lost someone from an addiction (Which I have lost my mother and my father to addiction of Crack Cocaine!!!!!!!) and its something you will forever grieve but who cares if people joke about it online and make tweets, people take way too much shit personally.

I am never sadden by an actors death if it's from an overdose. It's basically a suicide.

Sometimes the videos on this site are tasteless too but people pick and choose. Hoffman knew the dangers of drugs I'm sure.

When people say junkies die every day and he's just getting recognition because he's famous, no he's getting recognition because he was an award winning actor and a good friend to some. He's done things in his life that earned him this recognition despite being an addict. And when he sadly lost the battle, because yes beneath it all he was still a junkie, of course it's going to be a big deal. The overdose was cause of death, but drugs weren't the only thing he did with his life. R.I.P Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Shame on each and everyone of you! Thus man has children and he was Dad in their eyes not famous actor, or a guy with loads of money and NOT a junkie he was just there Dad. I'm sure one day they will have some resentment towards him because they never got to really know him. That is there right not ours! Addiction is not a life choice but a disease. Until we see it as such many many more will die. NO one takes drugs with the intent to become an addict. It's absolutely disgusting these garbage sucking soulless people are given a platform to run there mouth. Karma is a bitch and she will find you! Just ask Richard Sherman when you spew garbage into this world it will get you. With that said hey Sherman hows your ankle!!

My brother was an alcoholic and it took his life. Any kind of addiction is a dark and lonely place and, despite all the love and care in the world, nothing helps to release the grip. I hope to god that this person never has to witness the pain of losing someone this way

Clearly most of these people have ever dealt with an addiction or a loved one who is addicted. Yes at one time they made a choice but once you are addicted that choice is gone. It is one of the hardest things to watch someone go through. He deserves respect as every human being does.

This is so sad and disrespectful. As someone who is a recovering addict & knows all to well what this disease brings with it, I find it hard to read such filth from people who most likely have NO IDEA what he was going through. Overdose is usually the sad truth that lies ahead for many opiate addicts and unfortunately he was no exception. People should be ashamed of themselves for mocking ANYONE who loses their life and the battle of drug abuse. Never mind that he was famous or had money; he was a son, a cousin, a grandson, a friend. People forget that just because he was publicly known doesn't mean he isn't a person whom deserves respect & dignity. I am pretty positive that if it were your friend or your relative that just passed away from a drug addiction you wouldn't be so quick to say such hateful, mean things!!

I can understand that people are pissed about the publicity that dead actors get, nobody gives a shit about a normal addict if they OD! Still no excuse to be cruel.

I they are tasteless then why repost them? WTF? Break is just as bad as the idiots whose views they are rebroadcasting.

The best part is, all of them live on the internet, have no life and are jealous of what Hoffman had. It's always a pleasure to see stupid people speak their mind so the rest of us can avoid them. Drugs, illegal or not, he is in death, was in life and always will be in a higher class of people than the low comment low life. Just that simple. They're probably all Denver Bronco fans anyway which shows the losing ignorance, lol.

ok someone explain to me why drug users are nothing but degenerate wastes? You'd be amazed how many people who are accomplished citizens that have bad habits which may involve illegal substances.
