I was perfectly fine with it, these angles are always taken advantage of. I remember reading about Ric Flair when he returned from the plane crash that broke his back and nearly killed him. He returned to the TV studios in Greensboro to find all sorts of get-well cards for him. He said he was only keeping the ones from Raquel Welch and Joey Heatherton. He throws the others on the floor, and all the good will he had built up was gone immediately.

Well, there is pushing the envelope, and then there is pushing the envelope.

For me, it wasn't anything personal because I don't know anyone who has had a heart attack or died from one, so it didn't 'hit home' for me. Just saying, stuff like that is serious and could really be a jab to people who have had one/know someone who has had one and possibly died from it.

It was part of show and meant to get heat, that is definitely understandable, but, I dunno, things like that don't really bother me personally, but could be sensitive to people who have experienced it.

There are other ways they could push the envelope. Much worse ways included, lol.
