Louisiana Congressman-elect Luke Letlow, 41, died from the coronavirus on Tuesday night and reactions from some within the media were predictably low.

"Journalists" like's Aaron Rupar, who runs a popular Twitter account where the videos he posts often gain a lot of traction within liberal circles, took issue with how Letlow had advocated towards a balanced approach to dealing with COVID-19, specifically with how the long-term economic effects lockdowns will have on the country.


Rupar shared Letlow's tweet from October and said curtly, "Congressman-elect Letlow, 41, just died of Covid. A tragedy."

People on Twitter were quick to condemn Rupar for his dunking on a man who had just died.

Rupar addressed the avalanche of criticism he was receiving by stating, "I mean it sincerely -- Letlow's death is tragic. It was also avoidable." But many did not buy what he was selling.
