La competencia por el duelo público


Maravilla pieza de Will Leitch sobre las muestras de duelo por la muerte de celebridades en las redes sociales: Saint Robin que les recomiendo leer especialmente este párrafo:

“The instinct to sanctify the dead, to boast of how they meant more to you than they did to anyone else, to turn grief into this public competition, World’s Greatest Dad foretold this precise scenario, unwittingly, about its own star. This is something you would think might have come up a lot more in the endless discussion of Robin Williams’ life and death. But then again: Hardly anybody saw that movie”
