Gawker Lives: Jezebel Mocks the Death of Mike Pence’s Dog


In an effort to maintain Gawker-style journalistic standards, on Wednesday women’s blog Jezebel mocked the recent death of Mike Pence’s family dog.

A Jezebel article titled “An October Surprise for Mike Pence’s Dog: Death” spurred a myriad of bipartisan backlash on social media, most of which criticized the former Gawker (now part of Gizmodo Media since new owner Univision killed the toxic Gawker branding) blog for mocking the death of the longtime Pence family pet.

Breitbart News has reached out to Jezebel for comment.
