Later, Bryniarski finally gave his response on the comments, saying, "I was a big supporter of his and was cool [with] him he was cool with me. . . then he started going around to promote Chainsaw 3d and he started talking shit at cons and what not. . . [I'm] not somebody who takes shit from anybody and [I] tell it like it is. I originally posted a [Facebook] comment that said boo hoo yes. . . no tag just by itself. [R]ead into it what you will. I never wished for his death or suffering from pancreatic cancer which [I] didn't even know he had. Lets [sic] make that a bigger issue upon his sudden death. Cancer sucks worse than haters. Yall [have] a nice day. "
