A former executive director and general counsel for the South Carolina Republican Party is facing a firestorm after posting derogatory tweets about the late Trayvon Martin.

Todd Kincannon, who calls himself “The Honey Badger of American Politics” on his Twitter account, posted a series of incendiary tweets on Super Bowl Sunday, commenting on the blackout inside the New Orleans Superdome (Kincannon tweeted: “It hasn’t been this dark in the Superdome since all those poors occupied it after Hurricane Katrina,”) and even Beyonce Knowles’ halftime performance. But it was his tweets referencing the slain teen that drew the most outrage online.

Kincannon Tweeted that the Superbowl “sucks more d— than adult Trayvon Martin would have for drug money,” and despite angry responses from some on Twitter, he continued to tweet about Martin.

Kincannon drew some support, and he tweeted to one supporter that the 17-year-old, who would have turned 18 on Tuesday, was a “dangerous thug who needed to be put down like a rabid dog.”

Kincannon, in an interview on HuffPost Live Monday, defended his tweets stating they are “nothing more than satire” or “high-profile trolling.”

“The left has decided that Trayvon Martin was just this perfect little angel,” Kincannon said in a phone interview on the show. “He was a thug. Hetweeted about drug use. This guy, he was a criminal, and the left has decided to make him some sort of martyr. That is what I don’t understand.”
