@TheCyclone_ commented:

"I am no EFF and never will, but insulting the popular disc jockey for wishing the Red Beret crew happy born day is wrong and uncalled for. It is wrong folks. Why hurl insults and any form of subtle innuendos? He has every right to pick his side... you wrong folks!! This is sad."
