Twitter user “Hope there are lots of Republicans on that Amtrak train”

A New York City-bound Amtrak train derailed in Philadelphia on Tuesday, overturning and mangling the cars and flinging passengers and luggage around inside. At least six people were killed and at least 140 injured.

The victims included at least eight who were critically hurt in the accident, which closed the nation’s busiest rail corridor.

While victims were trying to gather themselves and save remaining lives, this twitter user who goes by the name @TuxcedoCat spewed this hate filled tweet

Just in case he deletes his message, here’s the screen shot version


Many twitter users were angered at the insensitive remarks and responded quickly

Responsible adults wouldn’t do something like this. Statements like this guy is totally reprehensible and uncalled for. Undeserving Americans died on this accident and this piece of trash wanted to get a laugh out of it.
