Jezebel News Editor Deletes, Apologizes for Tasteless Paul Walker Tweet

A torrent of angry Twitter reaction is pouring in today in the direction of Erin Gloria Ryan after the Jezebel news editor last night tweeted and then deleted a tasteless reference to the tragic death of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker.

Ryan’s tweet, which made reference to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, has unleashed outrage from right-leaning voters and others, for turning the death of the 40-year-old actor into a very offensive political jab. A few, like Washington Examiner editor Justin Green, are commending Ryan for her subsequent Twitter apologies:

New York Daily News New York radio observers have been expecting for the past year that Limbaugh and probably Hannity would leave WABC, which is owned by Cumulus, for rival WOR. Speculation about possible replacements at WABC for Limbaugh’s noon-3 p.m. show and Hannity’s 3-6 p.m. show has focused on Mike Huckabee and WABC evening hosts Mark Levin and Michael Savage, who signed with Cumulus last year. Deadline Hollywood In May, Limbaugh reportedly mulled leaving Cumulus after receiving blame for advertiser decline in the wake of his controversial Sandra Fluke comments. Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey told Bloomberg TV at the time that “we have the premier talk distribution platform in the business and if you want to be on a big stage in this game, you need to be on our stations in the largest markets.
