Adam Baldwin, others hammer Wil Wheaton for sick tweet on Sutherland Springs shooting

On Sunday, former Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Wil Wheaton issued a highly insensitive tweet regarding the Sutherland Springs, Texas, shooting.  He instantly got his clock cleaned by many, including Adam Baldwin, Twitchy said.

“Reports out of Texas are devastating. The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now,” House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., said.

Wheaton responded (Edited for language): “The murdered victims were in a church. If prayers did anything, they’d still be alive, you worthless sack of s**t.”

Adam Baldwin responded:

One person correctly noted:

Another said Wheaton blocked her on Twitter:

We tried, but Wheaton blocked us as well.  Naturally — liberal hatemongers are great at acting like really brave keyboard warriors, but apparently can’t stand any criticism.

Wounded warrior J.R. Salzman advised:

Indeed.

Fox News reported:

Many fans were immediately upset at Wheaton’s flippant response to the tweet, arguing that he dismissed prayer and those with faith far too easily.

“Seriously? So this sicko kills people in a church and somehow it’s Gods fault? Or prayer? You have an interesting perspective. No hate,” one said.

“One thing to attack a politician, it’s another to attack the innocent dead and all religion. Looks like you’re the worthless sack of sh–,” another wrote.

The backlash caused the actor to produce a series of tweets explaining his comments and apologizing to any people of faith that were offended.

“I’m not talking about religion or faith at all. I am talking about the speaker of the house who does nothing to address gun violence,” he replied. “Hey, real and actual people of faith: I hear you. I apologise for insulting you, in my rage at Paul Ryan’s refusal to address gun violence. Your faith is your business and people like Paul Ryan exploit it while they hide behind words without deeds, and people continue to die.”

It’s not the first time Wheaton angered the entire Internet, however.  As we reported here, his take on the shooting of Dallas police officers made quite a few upset.

Yup, that’s what he said.

He wasn’t finished, however, and wrote this a post on Tumblr:

I said F**k the NRA during the Dallas shootings because if the NRA wasn’t holding our nation hostage with its insanity, the person or persons who murdered those police in Dallas last night probably wouldn’t have been able to have such easy access to a weapon of quick, efficient, and easy killing.

A lot of NRA supporters like to go on and on about how everyone should own military-style weapons, so they can rise up against the government. Well, guess what, NRA? That happened last night. The police are part of the government, and someone did exactly what the NRA has been dogwhistling to its supporters for decades.

So f**k the NRA.

Scratch a liberal, find a hatemonger…
