Hawking's dead

Today on the 14th.  It's not everyday when someone gets a type of radiation named after them.

Hawking was happy to court controversy and was accused of being sexist and misogynist. He turned up at Stringfellows lap dancing club in 2003 ( https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/mar/14/stephen-hawking-professor-dies-aged-76 ).

Hard find on Hacker News: downvoted but not yet purged comment:

=======
Not one negative comment in this whole thread. Everyone is enamoured with Hawking, huh? Ask the women in his life what they thought of him. Ask the scientists, including Peter Higgs, who complained about his undue credibility and attention given to him.
Disagree with me? Think I'm speaking negative about the dead? If you call yourself inspired by a scientist, admiring a scientist, then you should seek the truth. Emotion based on truth I can stand, but the outpouring in this thread is ridiculous.
