Less than a month ago, the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams viciously attacked Dan Tencer of 630 CHED in Edmonton, Alberta, for expressing his concern for two seriously injured police officers in a couple of tweets.
Today, Jeromie, currently an author for the group “Americans Against the Tea Party,” exploited the untimely death of Philip Seymour Hoffman in typical disgusting fashion, in order to promote one of his ridiculous posts, in which he rails against McDonald’s and their “unhealthy food” and “addiction to sucking off the government teat,” not once mentioning his own longtime addictions to either “government support” or to crystal meth.
At 11:31 am, mere minutes after Hoffman’s death was reported, Jeromie tweeted that Hoffman would have wanted you to read his post:
Fortunately, many of his followers took exception to this shameful exploitation of a tragedy, in which three very young children have lost their father.
For example, Shauna Quinn expressed her disappointment in a series of tweets:
Jeromie responded that, as usual, he is not worried about offending anyone:
And Shauna, rightly, unfollowed him:
Jeromie responded with mockery:
And Shauna explained that he should have considered the feelings of Hoffman’s family, and that exploiting his death to try to hustle for pennies in ad revenue is “tasteless, wrong and unethical.”
Of course, Jeromie should know better, particularly given his own history of drug addiction, but he clearly does not.
Rest in peace, Mr. Hoffman.
UPDATE: Apparently the above comments weren’t tasteless enough for Jeromie.
