Rick Warren said it’s been difficult to deal with some of the hate mail and online comments he’s read since announcing Saturday that his son had committed suicide.

“Grieving is hard. Grieving as public figures, harder. Grieving while haters celebrate your pain, hardest,”Warren wrote on Facebook on Monday night.

Warren has been deluged with words of support both at his Saddleback Church in Orange County and on the Web.

“Kay and I are overwhelmed by your love, prayers, and kind words,” the pastor wrote.

But there have also been many words of hate on various website comment boards, including some blaming Warren for his son’s death.

Those comments have prompted outrage in some corners.

On Monday, Fox News personality Megyn Kelly discussed them on her show, calling some of the comments “shocking, disgusting and hard to understand. … I’m not going to give a voice to the haters because, I mean, boy oh boy, these are people who are in a dark place.
