Also nothing different about 2016. First, randomness. Second, we and the people we call celebrities are ageing, so expect more of them (us) dying every year that passes. Just think of the hundreds of famous people aged 60+ that are out there. 2017 will be as “bad” as 2016 (actually things will suck for a while with the rise of bigotry and fascism around the world)
I saw some telling research, I think on the BBC website, which answered and confirmed something which I have been morbidly thinking about for most of 2016, in the light of this terrible run of dying celebrities. Is this year some terrible statistical freak, which we can all cuss out and tell to do one…
Hey Sara, I was wondering the same thing. At no point did Lena even mention the dude’s race, it’s only known because he’s famous.
I believe you are right, had she said the same thing about a white athlete, not a soul would notice.
Sad that the bullies feel the need to perpetuate her mistake.
