Sage Stallone Death: Westboro Baptist Church Plans To Picket Actor's Funeral

Westboro Baptist Church Plans To Picket Sage Stallone's Funeral

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church have been called to picket actor Sage Stallone's funeral on account of his "adulterous dad," Sylvester Stallone.

After it was announced that the 36-year-old actor had died on July 13, Margie Phelps, daughter of Westboro leader Fred Phelps, tweeted to her 5,600 followers, urging them to picket Stallone's funeral.

"Thrice-married rebel taught his son to mock God. #picketfuneral," Phelps first tweeted on July 13.

The Westboro Baptist Church, infamous for its organized pickets at military funerals as part of its anti-gay agenda, is apparently targeting Sage because of his father's previous relationships.

"Adulterous dad brought wrath of God on son. #BloodOnDadsHands #picketfuneral #woe," Phelps tweeted, adding, "Tell @TheSlyStallone to mourn for his sins, not pimp out son's dead body to more proud sin!"

Sylvester Stallone has been married three times and Sage was his first child with his first wife, Sasha Czack, to whom he was married from 1975 to 1985, according to MTV.

Sylvester has asked that his family's privacy be respected during this difficult time.

"When a parent loses a child there is no greater pain," he said in a statement released to TMZ. "Therefore I am imploring people to respect my talented son's memory and feel compassion for his loving mother Sasha."

Sage Stallone was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Friday, July 13. The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that the Los Angeles County coroner's office confirmed the autopsy had been completed, but toxicology results and a cause of death are still pending.
