Hours after conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh announced he has lung cancer, University of California-Riverside Professor Reza Aslan took to Twitter to imply that the world would be a "better place" without Limbaugh in it.
"Ask yourself this simple question: is the world a better or a worse place with Rush Limbaugh in it?" Aslan tweeted.

While his initial tweet came in the form of a question, subsequent tweets from Aslan strongly suggest how he would answer the question.
While claiming that he wasn't "'celebrating' anyone's diagnosis," Aslan called Limbaugh a "curse upon this nation, a purveyor of hatred and racism who's at the very least indirectly responsible for the mass suffering of countless people."
