The Dish: It’s OK not to feel anything when a celebrity dies

It’s OK Not To Feel Anything When A Celebrity Dies

August has been a somewhat fallow month for posting, due both to my schedule and how terrible the news cycle has been.

Speaking of terrible news cycle, this repost is directly in response to everything that has blown up over the last 24 hours. While I consider celebrity deaths, especially those having to do with broadly applicable phenomena like drug use or suicide, I see no point in plastering my feelings on the matter all over social media. There’s something inherently masturbatory in posting content that reemphasizes your conformity to the broader consensus.
