Regardless of his past mistakes, this hashtag was ridiculously out of line.

After the news of Dylan O'Brien's scary accident on the set of Maze Runner, it's pretty understandable that the half internet just went into meltdown at the news that popular Viner Hayes Grier had been seriously injured in a dirt bike accident. 

Late last night, his brother Nash tweeted a pretty scary statement about the well-being of his younger brother and asked his fans to send their prayers using the hashtag #PrayForHayes. 


He continued to update their fans with news of Hayes' condition throughout the next hour.


According to a rep for the Viner, Hayes is set to spend the next few days in hospital where he'll take time to rest up and hopefully make a full recovery. 

But because this is the internet and we can't have anything nice, trolls began trending #HayesIsDeadParty in retaliation to Nash's initial sentiment. 


(Hayes, along with his brother Nash and many of their fellow Viner friends have been called out in the past for making racist, homophobic and sexist comments across their social media platforms.)

Regardless of Hayes' controversial content and past mistakes, fans and unbiased Twitter users agreed this trend was absolutely disgusting - and we have to agree.  





SMH. We hope Hayes makes a full recovery and is back on his feet real soon.
