Rapper 50 Cent and Comedian Gilbert Gottfried Mock The Japanese Tsunami/Earthquake Victims On Twitter

There are a plethora of ignorant people in this world who rear their ugly heads during tragic times. One can understand (though not condone) hateful and stupid behaviour from the likes of a young person, but it is inexcusable from an adult. In light of the horrifying triple blow that the Japanese people have been dealt, there are idiots out there who have absolutely no clue, let alone a heart. Take 50 Cent and Gilbert Gottfried, a rapper and a comedian, who with an incredible lack of sensitivity Tweeted the following callous remarks, for the whole world to witness.

"Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoe’s from LA, Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol." 50 Cent Tweeted.

Obviously aware of his idiocy, he then Tweeted a while later:
“Nah this is nuts but what can anyone do about it. Let’s pray for anyone who has lost someone.”

In response to criticism the rapper then said:
“Some of my tweets are ignorant I do it for shock value. Hate it or love it. I’m cool either way 50cent.”

Not cool, when the conservative death toll estimate is $10,000.00 people, with thousands missing, and thousands more homeless without food, water, shelter or electricity.

Gilbert Gottfried, a comedian Tweeted the supremely tasteless and unfunny:
"Japan is really advanced. They don't go to the beach. The beach comes to them."
Following that with equally crass:
"I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, 'They'll by another one floating by any minute now."

Mocking or making fun of others is a very unkind thing to do, but when it deals with such a monumental tragedy, and one that has yet to end, there is karma for that.
