Anti-gay Westboro Baptist plans to protest Robin Williams memorial

A tweet by the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church. Citing Williams as a “fag enabler,” The group is planning to stage one of their patented “God Hates Fags” protests at his memorial service. Already there are placards with the late actor’s face plastered over the words “Robin in Hell” appearing at other protests organized by the group, which has kept busy on Twitter spreading hate toward the beloved actor, who died earlier this week of suicide.
