Now that really is depressing.

She's doing the right thing. Her focus needs to be on her and her family. Being aware of what others think of will not allow her to heal. If anything she waited too long to do it. Give her statement of love for her father. Immediately after, I'm going to lay low, turn social media off and hope to be back soon.

I never thought I'd live to see the day where kids became so edgy that they'd shiatpost Robin Williams and his family.

This isn't unique to the internet. Rush Limbaugh going on about Robin killing himself because he was a liberal, and some Pro-Life trash saying it's because Williams' wife had an abortion.

Assholes gotta asshole.

Shameful behavior, internet denizens.

This. There was another Republican running for governor in MN yesterday that used Williams death to go trolling for primary votes. And apparently it worked as he won.

The bare minimum of decorum and respect for other people in a time of grief is truly too difficult for some people, it seems. These people are pitiful.

I always see this argument, its not her acting like a dick. Its the people that are dicks doing the damage here. Ban them from Instagram and twitter.

I hope that there really IS no such thing as an afterlife or divine judgment. If there was, and given the opportunity to communicate with anyone anywhere on Earth the best we could do was the internet as it stands now, we are royally farked.

Similar thing happened to James Reimer's wife when he played some bad games near the end of the season. A local radio station outed a few of them by revealing their real names.

That was a GOP deputy director in MN and was quickly jumped on by both parties, including being denounced by the GOP primary winner.  The guy who won was the front runner in the first place.  Still a really retarded tweet but you're giving it far too much credit in terms of affecting anything.

I would console her, though if she takes after her dad she probably has to a brazilian every three hours.

Meh. If you are mourning a loss, the last thing you need is the idiocy of the yammering masses in your ears, whether it's positive or negative. Going media-free for a while seems like a good idea anyway.

The point is she should be the one shamed out of using social media if she didn't do anything wrong

I agree with both of you. Yes her going without social media for a while so she can grieve privately is probably a good thing.... but the folks harassing her are also human waste piles who we'd be better off as a species to drown as an example to others.

I get Rush Limbaugh--he's paid lots of cash to be a trolling piece of garbage. It's these anonymous screaming nobodies spitting vitriolic poison from the safety of their hidden little caves, venting their pent up need to heard by a world that doesn't care about one person haunted by the pain of anonymity, dying inside everyday for lack of recognition from a culture where prestige and fortune is over-heaped on a select few celebrated individuals. These mute, key-board dependent, message posting, twittering skittering rat-like people need to put less effort into their hateful rants and more into going out and simply being part of the fabric of life and society--

wait a minute..

Indeed.

This will take a while to digest.

May God comfort and console the family on their loss.  RW fought the good fight for so long, it's hard to fathom he was finally defeated.
 
2014-08-13 11:26:02 AM  
Wow. That poor girl...you'd think there'd be nothing but an outpouring of love and support for her and her family during this time. What classless farks these people are to directly attack this girl; couldn't they have just stuck to their anonymous message boards instead of going out of their way to make sure they conveyed their shiattiness to her personally? Ugh. The sad thing is that none of this surprises me :/

I was glad to see that she said that the family is, in some small way, comforted by knowing that the world is mourning their loss with them. Robin touched so many of our lives and I'm just glad that his family is aware of just how deeply his loss is being felt by everyone, everywhere, to whom he made a difference. It won't make it easier, but at least they will know that they are far from alone in their grief and that the world (the majority of us, anyway) is supportive of and sympathetic to their suffering.

Have her bathed and brought to my chambers so I may console her.

What, we're just going to play video games to take her mind of things for a while!

You shouldn't really be surprised that folks online act like human waste piles (the good people on Fark excepted), so expecting more from them in a time of trouble is folly. Put another way, don't go into the pig pen if you don't feel like getting dirty (case in point: Fark Politics tab).

I kind of disagree with this, at least when we're talking about something as vile as trolling someone who has just experienced a tragedy. I think the people who do this are probably total f*ckwads in real life, too.

I only ever get to read the first two paragraphs of a Daily Mail story.

Never playing their game.

I get the general idea, then I find it somewhere else.

And stuff like this is why I chose to join Fark and eschew any other type of social media.
I find the denizens of Fark pretty good at self-policing and smacking down racists and other types of evil shiat.

If you take social media like twatter and instawhore seriously, you just might have a problem.

Good for her for letting go of these internet septic tanks.

Robin Williams is a coward because only cowards and terminal patients kill themselves. He was an adulterer and an addict. That being said, he was a funny son of a biatch and a damn good actor at times. Does his daughter deserve this? God no! Do I wish his family the best? Of course I do!

Does the fact that this human being, filled with extremes of both bad and good, killed himself tarnish his image in my mind? It does, sadly.

I remember when Tony Snow and Charlton Heston died, liberal trash were saying the most hateful degrading snd slanderous things about them. These very same people are now attacking Robin Williams. Here's proof of the Liberal-Democrat hate and bigotry that has been victimizing Americans for decades.Link

It's amazing how much better your day can be once you drop social media all together.

It's odd how people crave using them as a means to validate their daily activities among friends and acquaintances with equally boring lives.

Can't speak for anyone else, but people saying dumb stuff on the internet tarnishes their image in my mind.
