God Hates Fags church to picket Robin Williams funeral

Nick Duffy August 12, 2014

The Westboro Baptist Church have announced they will picket the funeral of actor Robin Williams.

The Topeka-based anti-gay church, known for their ‘God Hates Fags’ banners, are currently in San Francisco for their ‘God Hates the Media’ campaign, targeting the headquarters of Apple, Facebook, and Twitter.

Williams, who starred as a gay man in cult classic The Birdcage, was found dead in his California home yesterday, age 63.

The star played a gay man in cult classic The Birdcage and cross-dressed in comedy Mrs Doubtfire, leading the church to claim he “made merchandise of filthy proud sin”.

The anti-gay group tweeted following the star’s death, labelling him a “fag pimp” and pledging to picket his funeral and any memorial services.

The church’s founder, Fred Phelps, passed away in March aged 84.
