The left weighs in on last night's massacre

Nail bomb planted at concert, 22 dead, including young teenaged girls and children, and this guy offers his reaction (which to be fair, has probably ended his career as a free-lance journalist, forever).

A Boston journalist has been slammed for a vile joke about a terrorist attack which killed 19 people and injured 50 at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester on Monday night.

A 7pm EST, as the first reports of the atrocity emerged, Boston-based journalist David Leavitt took to Twitter to write: 'Multiple confirmed fatalities at Manchester Arena. The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too.'

'Honestly, for over a year I thought Ariana Grande was something you ordered at Starbucks,' he continued, oblivious to the insensitivity of his first tweet. 

Leavitt, who used to write guide to Boston on a freelance basis for CBS, was immediately inundated with complaints from outraged Twitter users who labeled him a 'vile scumbag' and called for him to never work again.

CBS freelance writer David Leavitt posted this vile tweet on Monday night within hours of a terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester which has left 19 dead and 50 injured

Unrepentant, he replied to them: 'Too soon?' and even boasted receiving a notification from the micro-blogging site to notify him of the surge in attention his profile was suddenly receiving.

And of course, the Twitternet goes out of its mind: "Islamaphobia!"
