In response to: Paul Walker Dies At 40 In Fiery Car Crash
Here at Random Humor, we don’t get the obsession with people’s wanting to be connected to tragedy or death. Paul Walker passed away Saturday afternoon in a fiery car crash. Before his death, his twitter followers rested at a modest following in the low 700,000’s. By 10:45pm EST, his count went to well over 850,000 followers and are still rising.
We hope people know, that by following him after he passed doesn’t mean you are a fan. The fact that you are looking for a connection to him through his death is kind of… well, weird.
We’ve seen this happen time and time again over the last few years. Someone (especially a celebrity) is hurt or tragically dies, and the followers or friend requests come pouring. And it seems to have something to do with wanting a weird connection to a particular tragedy. Here’s a small piece of advice; Don’t pretend to care once someone passes and don’t jump on the bandwagon when a group of people start to make fools of themselves.
