When news broke that legendary comedian Garry Shandling passed away yesterday, people were devastated, especially his comedian friends. The loss was sudden and unexpected, and considering how much Shandling contributed to the entertainment industry, the reactions were justified.

But unlike the comedy greats, New York Post writer Steve Cuozzo didn’t understand the big f*cking deal. And of course, he was smart enough to voice that opinion on Twitter, to which he received an infinite amount of fiery backlash. Because when you’re a d*ck that’s used to writing about tuna tartare, that’s what happens.

Here’s the tweet:

What a moron. The guy was a legend! Even I know that! Not to mention, what kind of a**hole insults a guy right after he dies? He has no way to defend himself! He deserved every bit of backlash he got, which was a lot — Twitter (namely comedians) literally ripped him a new virtual a**hole.

@stevecuozzo an Olive Garden quality tweet

@stevecuozzo You're aware that not tweeting anything was an option, right?

Seems like your sense of humor stinks and your sense of decency is even worse. https://t.co/qtabzqTnUv

Now I see why you say such terrible things. I believe this is you attempting humor. It must hurt you to be a hack. https://t.co/mP0UT4v7Fc

You're a terrible human being. You should get your heart verified. https://t.co/euNivqCiD9
