Soon after the announcement of Sage’s death, 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 group displays anti-gay signs, profanity and insults at their protests.

“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.

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.
