Soon after conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh announced on his Monday program that he has advanced lung cancer, leftists on social media — as we've come to expect — tore into Limbaugh with gusto.

Writer and comedian Nick Jack Pappas served up this take:

Numerous commenters on CNN Brian Stelter's tweet regarding Limbaugh's cancer announcement were particularly brutal to the conservative radio host:

  • "He, literally, has encouraged right-wing politicians to harm people, deprive healthcare, imprison innocent children, and let people die. Lives will be saved when he is gone."
  • "Couldn't have happened to a better person. I guess since he is a cancer to society, life is imitating art here."
  • "Karma."
  • "God works in mysterious ways."
  • "Such a painful disease. The suffering he will experience. The anguish of facing death after his despicable life will be a burden so heavy, it will destroy his soul."
  • "I'm sorry anyone has cancer. I won't be sorry to have someone who lies off the airwaves."
  • "'I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.' Your time has come you vicious racist POS."
  • "Does that mean he will stop spreading hatred towards minorities from now on? Then that's OK."
  • "...I wish I didn't have to laugh my ass off at this."
  • "Good riddance."
