We honestly never heard of this cretin until we came across this outrageous bilge after the passing of Alan Thicke Tuesday night.
Actor Alan Thicke has died at the age of 69.
Thicke, known for his role as the likable father on the ABC television series Growing Pains, died from a heart attack on Tuesday.
His son, Grammy award nominated-singer Robin Thicke paid tribute to him on Tuesday evening, calling him the ‘greatest man I ever met’ and ‘always a gentleman.’
Robin Thicke told The Los Angeles Times his father was playing hockey with his brother, 19-year-old Carter, when he suffered a heart attack.
Alan Thicke and Carter had been at the Pickwick Ice skating rink in Burbank at the time.
Robin Thicke noted the last thing his father said was a compliment to Carter about a nice shot.
‘I saw him a few days ago and told him how much I loved and respected him,’ Thicke told the newspaper, adding that his father was an inspiration for his own musical career.
‘The good thing was that he was beloved and he had closure.
Just awful, and we pass along condolences to Thicke’s family and friends, as sane people normally do.
So sad is the passing of Alan Thicke. Such a good husband, father, brother, and friend. He will be deeply missed. Rest in peace dear Alan.

Nice touch from a class guy.
Yet sanity has been in woefully short supply these days in much of Hollywood. To wit:
RIP Alan Thicke. Seems like everyone is checking out before the Trumpacolypse.

If you have no idea who Lisa Edelstin is, join the club. She’s spent the past couple of decades as a bit part actress and on obscure cable shows, but now a lot more people know who this cretin is.
At least you could use his death for a lame joke. https://t.co/9V2eXldfbF

Ground rules in case you want to tie a recent death to Trump:

When an adult gets in touch with her and lets her know what an asshole she is she’ll probably delete it, so we have it as a reminder:

Long before Donald Trump was running for president and Lisa Edelstein was starring in the Bravo series “Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce,” the real estate mogul owned a football team, and the actress was a cheerleader on the sidelines.
But according to Edelstein in a Wednesday conversation with HuffPost Live, Trump treated the cheerleading squad of the New Jersey Generals “like hookers,” and Edelstein ultimately organized a walkout in protest of their working conditions.
The cheerleaders, who mostly were grown-ups, they were women who did that for a living. We were paid $35 a game and like $15 at rehearsal. It wasn’t a lot of money, but they were professional cheerleaders and they were older — I was only 16 [and] these women were in their 30s or 20s. They were being asked to do these signings in their little uniforms in these sleazy bars all over the place, and they weren’t protected and they were feeling really unsafe and uncared for and just sort of thrown into these environments.
As the angry left is fond of saying, MoveOn.
