Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday expressed outrage over an article published in The Onion.
In a message on Twitter, Hannity asked “what is wrong with the left that they think these sorts of things are funny?” The message was linked to a satirical article about his former boss titled “Hundreds Of Miniature Sean Hannitys Burst From Roger Ailes’ Corpse.”
Ailes, the former chief of Fox News, died May 18.
But Hannity's foes were quick to point out that he uses the word "snowflake" to mock political opponents who he views as oversensitive. He also frequently labels liberals as "crybabies."

Others accused Hannity of being a hypocrite for not expressing outrage about effigies and images depicting the lynching of former President Barack Obama.
