People often take things too far on social media, but a Phoenix doctor may have raised the bar.

According to South Stands Denver, pediatric cardiologist Dr. Scott Schnee told Adrian Dater of the Denver Post to go see a movie in Aurora and join Jessica, a clear reference to Jessica Redfield who was killed in the "Dark Knight Rises" shooting.

Why? Because Dater was harsh on the Phoenix Coyotes.

The account was set to private before it was deleted.

In a series of follow-up tweets, Schnee did not show much remorse, instead saying it just happened to hit Coloradans where it hurts.

However, Schnee released an apology on Wednesday morning.

In response to the tweets, Banner Health released the following statement. It has not been altered in any way.

We are currently gathering details on this situation. Please know that Banner Health takes this matter very seriously, and will provide information, as appropriate.

The Coyotes fanbase certainly has had a tough go of it, but it's certainly not worth it to tell someone to die in a mass shooting.
