Westboro Baptist Church Sends Offensive Tweet About Jeff Hanneman’s Death

It didn’t take long for them to get involved. Just minutes after the tragic passing of legendary heavy-metal guitarist Jeff Hanneman was announced, the Westboro Baptist Church piped up with this statement:

“Which of your idols will God kill next?”

The church mocks the passing yesterday of Kris Kross rapper Chris Kelly, in addition to Hanneman’s death. Previously there was a Facebook page set up to try to persuade Slayer to play a show directly in front of the Westboro Baptist Church’s headquarters in Topeka, Kansas. The campaign has been online since January 2011 and was a direct response to WBC’s picketing of a high school in Utah, that picket was, according to the church, organized “…to tell (students) the truth for the first time in their lives.”
