Comedian Ralphie May's insensitive tweet about the three veteran storm chasers who were killed Friday while pursuing a tornado in Oklahoma spurred a flurry of outrage among Twitter users who spent the weekend bashing the funnyman.

Tim Samaras, 55, his son Paul Samaras, 24, and Carl Young, 45, were overtaken by a multiple-vortex tornado Friday that appeared to be in the midst of a sharp change in direction, the Weather Channel reported. The storm reportedly killed 10 people altogether.

But the casualties didn’t stop May, 41, from using the tragedy as an opportunity to make a joke.

Twitter users immediately attacked May for his rude comment.






May wasn’t the only one with publicizing opinions on the storm chasers' deaths.
