Author Stephen King called the GOP train crash Karma in a tweet following the train’s collision with a garbage truck. The accident killed the driver of the truck, Christopher Foley who leaves behind a wife and 1 year old son.
A trainload of Republicans on their way to a pricey retreat hit a garbage truck. My friend Russ calls that karma.

The reaction to King’s tweet was a plot twist he didn’t see coming.
And karma means you lost a reader. An innocent man died. I thought you were better than that. How is the potential death of a politician something to be sneered at. If Hillary was on the train would you be laughing at jokes about that?

There was a fatality in that wreck. But, yeah, laugh it up.

Was it karma when that van hit you?

i regret all the time i spent reading your books…which is very sad because i loved them…they no longer have a place on my shelves…the 1st editions, signed copies are gone…even the postcard you sent me is gone…shame on you…a person died in that accident…

There were women & children on that train & against the odds only 1 casualty, the rest of the passengers are OK. In Israel we call that A Divine Intervention, I believe it is way way above your friend's 'karma'
FYI, Karma is when the memo will be released.

I doubt the family of the late 28 yr. old #ChristopherFoley will see it that way.
And I'm sure when his one yr. old son is old enough to understand, he won't see it that way.
And I doubt it will give him comfort that a world renown author referred to his father's death as karma.

You know Mr. King that someone died and people were hurt right?

So when you got hit by that car & nearly killed…Karma?
— Beatrice Wylee (@twfreedom50) February 2, 2018
What do you suppose the family of the truck driver that was killed calls it?

you just lost a bunch of fans…that was low

Stephen was walking down the road near his pricey farmhouse when he was struck by a van. My friend heard of the accident and was truly concerned for Stephen. Stephen's friend just pointed and laughed. A person's friends can tell you a lot, I guess.

A 1-year-old child lost her father in that tragic accident. That’s not karma, that’s just terribly sad.

I make sure everytime I see your book I turn away, NEVER TO PICK IT UP OR READ IT, BECAUSE OF THIS CRUEL, DISHEARTING TWEET. I will save this TWEET!! To remember WHAT YOU SAID!! I hope and pray you ask God for forgiveness, instead tweeting HATE maybe PRAY for them. #News #World

Meet Karma. Apology NOT accepted. People died! Karma is every Veteran who bought a book of yours writing a publisher demanding refunds & your royalties be halted. Karma will visit you soon. Good luck with that. Next time be human before being liberal. Huge difference! #rt pic.twitter.com/al56g9gmbX

Following the backlash King received from his followers on Twitter, he attempted to walk back his statement with a backhanded apology, stating he didn’t even know if one was necessary. I didn’t buy it.
Don't sweat it @StephenKing because nobody ever expected Leftists to be thoughtful.
