In the wake of the surprising death of superstar pop icon Prince, thousands took to Twitter and other social media to express their sadness and share what snapshot of Prince’s life and career meant the most to them.

But then came lumbering buffoon Sheriff Joe Arpaio who not only insulted the man who was not yet 24 hours dead, but used it to make a political endorsement for himself.


If you’re having a boring Friday and you’re looking for a laugh, peruse the replies to that comment in the Twitter-sphere. What you’ll find is a wave of support for the deceased star and a whole lot of justified anger at the dirty sheriff.
