I hope he takes them for millions... and then a big rock falls out of the sky and squashes him like the bug he is. I don’t agree with what he did at all, it was tasteless and disgusting. BUT he had the right to do it and you can’t throw him in jail because you don’t like it (well, unless you are a leftist).

As distasteful as the comment that he made was...um yeah clear violation of his rights IMO.
