What a dick.

And the writer could use a punch to the temple for the first sentence.

What is wrong with people? I can't image how this guy thought this was a good idea. Sad!

There is no such thing as a terrible Coaster just ones that haven't been taken care of

So the guy previously shot two dogs at point blank range, assaulted a senior citizen, has 3 DUIs, and was in jail for fleeing the police. Sounds like a class act.

The kids nearby must be having nightmares about this incident.

I was so disturbed by the senseless murder of Pinky that I started a memorial on my front lawn.

Pink Lives Matter!

But then again, what do I know?

Not sure why people are joking about this. It's not funny at all. This man is unbalanced and will hopefully serve a longer sentence than what he got for shooting those dogs.

It's 2016, of course people will joke about this. It's what our lord, Harambe, wanted from us

Hey, let's ride (random Intamin coaster). What? It's broken down? I totally didn't expect that.

I'm surprised PETA hasn't turned that into a t-shirt already and made a movie called "Pinkbird".
