Joseph wrote: "I'm a human being. Asshole. Probably crying a little. I just had gotten word that my dear friend and Teamster on Power, Bobby Scanlon passed away from pancreatic cancer. A Hell's Kitchen native. He was a good man."

Joseph also continued to remember his friend in the replies, noting: "He is survived by his wife, who was an usher on Broadway for many years. He was an avid reader and a lover of plants."

It's just another example of why to never joke about someone else's appearance. You never know what people are going through. Sorry for your loss, Joseph, and condolences to Bobby's family.
