Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has died ... this according to Venezuelan Vice President Nicolas Maduro. 

Maduro -- who was fighting back tears during the announcement -- said Chavez died today at 4:25 PM.

Chavez had been in Cuba for months, where he was receiving treatment for a mystery illness that turned out to be cancer.

Chavez hated America ... and blamed all of the world's problems on the United States.

To paraphrase Ben Affleck ... Hugo f**k yourself. 

He was 58.

His first mistake was going to Cuba for medical care. You could be healthy to begin with and die there.

How much do you want to bet that he is sitting in hell right now- and smelling the strong smell of sulfur?

This is something that belongs on CNN, MSNBC or FOX, not on TMZ.

Is it really necessary to tell someone that just died to go f themselves? No class, TMZ.

Very few people do I get glee in bad things happening to them. This Assclown is the exception. I hope this was painful
