Will their insanity never end? We've seen them attempt parodies, we've seen them picket concerts, but now they've gone WAY over the line into Crazyville. Joining their lineup of funeral pickets, including those of US soldiers, the Westboro Baptist Church has tweeted their intentions to picket Robin Williams' funeral. I don't know about you, but I am pretty outraged! What makes them think this is okay? Williams' cause of death was confirmed as a suicide by Marine County officials. The church took to their Twitter, posting photoshopped images of Williams alongside slogans and messages "promoting" their image. If they think this is going to get them any kind of respect, they would be wrong. Twitter users have since criticized the church for their images and hateful messages, outing them as insensitive. They made several tweets about Williams' choice to "mock God" during his lifetime.

First his daughter shuts off her social media due to haters and now this? The Williams family has gone through enough without adding the WBC's crazy train. Williams' wife, Susan Schneider, wishes only for his legacy of laughter, love, and joy to be remembered. Robin Williams touched the lives of friends, family, and his many fans. I know my childhood would not be the same without his wit and charm. "I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken,” Schneider said. “On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.” Well said, Susan. Well said.
