People’s Weird Obsession With Tragedy And Death

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.

“Paul Walker — best known for his role in “The Fast and the Furious” movies — died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California … TMZ has learned.

The accident happened in Santa Clarita — north of Los Angeles — and according to multiple sources connected to Paul … the actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree … and then the car burst into flames.

Several of our sources — some who are still at the scene of the accident — tell us Paul and another person in the car were killed. Law enforcement is still on the scene, and we’re told the L.A. County Coroner’s Office is on the way.”
