Wishing You Know Who’s Death From Covid-19 Goes Too Far

On Friday, when various news outlets reported that you know who contracted Covid-19, the responses to the headline varied.

But there was one reaction that went too far, at least from my perspective. There were some on social media (Twitter to be specific), who wished that he would join the over 200,000 American who have already died from the virus.

Does he deserve to hear “told you so”? Absolutely.

But would I actively wish him dead from the virus? No.

The problem with these statements (especially from the left) is that they perpetuate the myth that you know who has been complaining about. Now whether or not he is believed depends on the individual. However, as tempting as it is to make such a statement, I believe that restraint is necessary.
