Why do so many people in society treat celebrities whom have died as something extraordinary ?
Theres a big list out there but once someone who people seemed to get too much of dies they go on and on about how great they were. I do understand the respect of not speaking ill of the deceased, but to me that doesnt mean i have to act like they were great when they were mediocre. People had lots of negative things to say when Michael Jackson was accused of molestation but when he dies at a young age he is later somehow socially acquitted of all crime. Steve Jobs was the butt of many a FB blast, the scapegoat for computer mishaps, then he dies and everyone and their dog makes him their avatar and cuts and pastes poems about him. I guess it just seems fake. what's your opinion?
