He didn't defend anyone. The joke itself wasn't aiming for any specific friend of his. If you want to start focusing on the worst moments in his life before his accomplishments because he offended you maybe you should look at his better once too. The one when he actually showed growth. Because trust me pretty much no one looks sympathetic at the people that was "victims" of tbs tweets. Because he's dead now and his "victims" aren't.
