There's a very small list of people I would genuinely wish death upon. He isn't one of them.

However, when it comes to somebody being blown to bits in a fast car that was clearly being driven just a weeny bit too fast, I still - like Deathklokk - have not a shred of sympathy.

personally i dont see anything wrong in out pouring of grief when someone famous dies, i have to admit i was really gutted when we lost Freddy Mercury, i think you form some kind of connection to them because of what they do and because they have have an positive effect on your life, i can think of a few actors who i will be pretty devastated when they pass, but then again i teared up when i saw the pictures of those children who were killed by chemical weapons i had no connection with the people of syria but im a father so i choked up, had it been adults i would be the first to admit it would be sad, but hardly out of the ordinary for our world.

HUGE BITZ RESTOCK NOW ON

To be fair, this can be said about practically anything that happens. Any tragedy, any catastrophe, any crisis or death can be totally negated by the atrocities that happens around the world at any given time. If we were to put everything into perspective, roughly 93,8% (personal estimation, all rights reserved) of the worlds population would go into a deep depression.

People can relate to what is right in front of them. They can relate to the death of a celebrity, to the fall of a major company (You remember how the entire USA went batshit over the demise of the Twinky?) or a hurricane that hit a popular city. They react to the tragedy to show their support, because they can relate to that one incident. It is not wrong, it is not false - It is mostly genuine support and sorrow that is displayed. That we should never take away from them, as it does show genuine humanity.

Because everyone doesn't react to all the world horrors (the hurricane that hit recently? Its a baby storm compared to what is happening other places) it doesn't mean people don't care. It means that they cannot fathom all the tragedy and they filter it out. When they get faced with one exposed by the media, they react, as it is right in front of them.

I don't see why people react so strongly to people sorrow over this matter. He was a guy that many people knew of, and of course it's easier to relate to that. It's simple protective mentality - Otherwise nothing that ever happened would matter, as there's always that one war or hunger that trumps it.

Could not give you rep so just posting my rep here. That was a good post.

Making a mockery of anybodys death, be it Paul Walker, Nelson Mandela, starving kids, Fred from down the street, whoever, is innapproriate in the highest degree. Thats not on me, its on those who cause the disrespect.

I can think of quite a list of peoples deaths I would celebrate that wouldn't be inappropriate in the slightest.

Joseph Fritzl
Charles Manson
Peter Sutcliffe
Jimmy Saville
Ian Watkins
Harold Shipman
Ian Brady

to name a few. Then there is a list of celebrities whose deaths I would hardly call tragic and would probably say it's a good thing as it stops them from continueing to plague the world with their own personal brand of ego inflationary bullshit:

Anybody with the last name Kardasian (or however you spell it, judging by the size of their asses it probably has the word "butter" in it).
Kayne West
Beiber
Miley Cyrus
Robin Thicke
Jedward
One Directon
Pretty much every Politican ever to live (except the President of Venuzula, he seems like a good sort).

The list goes on.
