Aaron Carpenter and his family had to deal with the sudden loss of his stepfather Jeff Anderson after also tragically losing is stepbrother Nic a few months prior. While Aaron was attending the newly revived MagCon tour during the weekend, some cruel Twitter user made a heartless joke, comparing the convention to that of Aaron's stepdad passing away.

This was obviously extremely insensitive and Aaron's friend and fellow tour buddy Taylor Caniff tweeted about how much these words affected Aaron.

Poor Aaron broke down, and if anything, this proves just how powerful words are, especially those written online. It's comforting to know Aaron had some of his closest friends by his side during this incident and our hearts go out to Aaron.
