Certain Twitter users have been slammed for apparently making light of the recent tragic death of Sean Dolan, the father of Ethan and Grayson Dolan.

Sean tragically passed away this past weekend after a battle with cancer. Both Dolan brothers took to Twitter to pay tribute to their father, and to announce that they would be stepping away from social media for a while.

However, while most people online posted respectful messages of condolence, some KPOP fans took Sean's passing as opportunity to mock the Dolan twins.

It's not clear why people did this, outside of straightforward spite, but it may be partly because of a joke that Grayson made in a video in 2018, in which he pretended to faint, and compared himself to a K-pop performer. K-pop performers have fainted on occasion due to the amount of work they do.

Of course, no matter what, there is absolutely no justification for mocking the tragic death of someone's father. Some of the tweets that people sent out in the wake of Sean's passing were reprehensible, here's just a sample:

These tweets brought widespread condemnation from other K-pop fans

Our thoughts are with Grayson, Dolan and all of Sean's loved ones at this tragic time.
