And Another Thing..

WTF? My dad just sent out this link. He hasn't even had time to see the post I JUST hit "publish" on.

What is WRONG with people? What is wrong with Fox News? How is it okay to make fun of the fact that a young, talented man died of an apparent ACCIDENTAL drug overdose? How is it okay to make fun of the fact that ANYONE died of any type of drug overdose? Because he played a gay cowboy in a movie? Is that really so threatening to John Gibson that he has to mock his death?

I can't even write anymore. It makes me sick. Seriously, very, very sad that this is what our society has come to.

John Gibson is a huge horrible evil douche.

I go with the evil analysis. Hopefully he will get lots of flack for this. What an ignorant ass.

Thanks so much for writing about this. I couldn't watch the clip. I got too inflamed just reading the quotes from the show. Makes my blood boil!

I've just recently gone through another death that was close to us and someone in the public eye. Same day as Heath. I can't believe all the a@#holes that come out of the wood work to go out of there way to stay stupid shit, of course anonymously. It's horrible.

It just truly breaks my heart that our society has turned so cold and callous, and most of these idiots are hiding behind the veil of the computer.

I emailed this to my sister and a friend earlier today, with my chin on the floor. I hope he suffers somehow.

WTF?? He's a "weirdo" because his latest movie role had an impact on him? I wonder if Gibson would have had the same reaction if he'd never played Ennis. Do you think he ever even SAW Brokeback Mountain?

Now that you're all riled up check this out: http://www.abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=4183635&page=1 The church that protests at soldiers' funerals is planning to protest Heath's funeral because he "misused the giant megaphone given to him by God Almighty to speak the truth about fags." These people are in for a terrible surprise when their time comes.

Ugh...ignorance doesn't go well with a megaphone. Makes my head hurt.

This is just wrong - I'm all for freedom of speech - it's the freedom of stupidity that I have a problem with. See you soon - Kellan
