When "LOL" is used as qualifier used to diffuse tension at the end of a particularly serious statement. The user of this qualifier usually anticipates a negative reaction (the nature of which is either anger or awkwardness) from the listener, and uses "LOL" as a sheild to prevent any anger or offense from being reflected back toward them.
After posting a particularly passive aggressive Facebook post, user them comments on own post:

"PS.. This has nothing to do with any particular person, or anything else. If you are upset about this post then you may need to seek out and fix your issues. Lol"

Reader then takes offense.....

User says, "I said LOL, you can't get mad. I used LOL Diffusion!"
