"Rest in Piss": Rush Limbaugh's death sparks an explosion of negative comments on Twitter highlighting his legacy

People say that his death does not absolve him of the many vile and hateful things he perpetuated from behind the mic on air over the years.

When the news of Rush Limbaugh's death came out, emotional tributes poured in from across the country, describing him as a radio icon that cannot be replaced.

But at the same time, there were many others who are glad that there is no replacement for the conservative radio host who built his career by being provocative on his show. President Joe Biden once described him as "a conservative media personality who has done as much as Trump himself to divide our nation," according to The Hollywood Reporter. And many seem to have agreed with that.

While one side mourned his death, another side offered condolences to whoever has to continue listening to Limbaugh in the afterlife.



Many on Twitter unabashedly made known their feelings about Limbaugh's death and slammed him for all that he stood for while alive.









Several creative phrases were trending on Twitter after the death of the multimillionaire, who walked away with the Presidential Medal of Freedom while he was alive.

"Rest in Piss," "Good Riddance," and "Rot in Hell" were some phrases that began trending on Twitter in connection with his death, according to National Review.





Some reminded people of the atrocious things he has done while he sat behind a mic and spoke on air.






In case you were wondering what some of the vile things that these Twitter users were referring to, you will find a number of homophobic, sexist, casteist, and sometimes plain cruel statements Limbaugh has made in his decades-long career.

One statement he said back in the 70s to a black woman who called his show was: "Take that bone out of your nose and call me back," according to Independent.

In his opinion, feminism was established to simply "allow unattractive women access to the mainstream of society." And he also once said, "I love the women’s movement, especially when walking behind it."


His homophobic slurs were written about in a book called The Most Dangerous Man in America: Rush Limbaugh's Assault on Reasonwhere Limbaugh was quoted saying, "When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it's an invitation."

"I seldom bend over forward in public, for obvious reasons," was also something he was quoted saying.


Loyal fans of the radio host, who call themselves "Dittoheads," are supporting a man who also once spoke about the "white race" and said, "If any race of people should not have guilt about slavery, it's Caucasians. The white race has probably had fewer slaves and for a briefer period of time than any other in the history of the world," according to Media Matters for America. That incendiary statement was far from true, and anyone who has understood American history would know that.
