On Friday, three storm chasers were killed while pursuing a tornado in Oklahoma. As Twitchy reported, one member of the chase team detailed the ominous storm in a haunting final tweet.

Whenever there’s a tragedy involving a loss of life, we can always count on somebody to “go there.” Today that person was comedian Ralphie May, who is big in physical size but small in the area of sensitivity:

Reaction to May’s tweet, some of it from people who otherwise describe themselves as fans of his comedy, was mostly critical:

Not that May didn’t have his defenders:

May threw it at Twitter, and it didn’t stick.

Update: The original version of this post misidentified the storm chasers as Weather Channel employees. Twitchy regrets the error.
