Westboro canceled Leonard Nimoy funeral protest because they couldn’t find it
William Shatner was not the only mourner missing from the pews at his late “Star Trek” co-star Leonard Nimoy’s March 1 farewell. Never being ones to skip a party, Westboro Baptist Church couldn’t be more upset about getting cut from the list of attendees.
The services, kept private by family and loved ones, ducked under the hateful gaze of the church, and insured that the star was laid to rest with dignity, while forcing the WBC into a sullen bout of digital dust-kicking.

The church has claimed this digital picketing only enhances their mission.
Shatner, who was aware of the location of the services, but presumably unaware of his assist in Westboro’s SEO ratings, was busy being dragged by The Daily News for missing the funeral, and initiated his own digital memorial via twitter.
