News of David Koch's death on Friday drew out many critics of the billionaire industrialist and his equally controversial brother, with some taking to social media to welcome the news.

The LGBT magazine The Advocate tweeted: "Ding Dong #David Koch." Actor Ron Perlman added: "Wishing the Koch brothers a speedy reunion," while progressive activist Ryan Knight tweeted that his death is a "great GAIN for the planet."

Some of this was likely fuelled by the toxicity of U.S. politics right now, says Christopher Leonard, author of Kochland: The Secret History of Koch Industries and Corporate Power in America.
