Westboro Baptist Church Member Blames Tornado on Kevin Durant’s Support of Jason Collins
Fred Phelps Jr., the son of Westboro Baptist Church minister Fred Phelps, is stirring up controversy after he sent a series of tweets blaming the devastating Oklahoma tornado on NBA player Jason Collins‘ coming out and Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant‘s support of his announcement.
