Earlier this week, hollywood icon Carrie Fisher passed away at the age of 60 after suffering a heartattack.
She suffered the episode on a plane, and died in the hospital a few days later.
Debbie Reynolds, Fisher’s mother, and an icon in her own right tragically died the very next day.
The unusual circumstance has been a tough pill for fans to swallow.
The loss was felt all over the entertainment industry, Fisher was a living legend, a national treasure.
Her performances inspired a generation, and it will be years before many come to to grips with the fact that she is gone.
We all will miss Carrie Fisher, and as I look at the Return of the Jedi Poster hanging in my office, I feel a bit of a lump rising in my throat.
This is awful, to think that one of my childhood heros is gone is really difficult to comprehend.
To make matter worse, certain people are disrespecting tragedy, and the memory of Fisher.
Take Steve Martin for instance.
This tweet is both degrading, and misogynistic, somewhat of an odd thing to tweet in wake of someone’s death.
Martin deleted the tweet, but the damage had aready been done.
Martin was not alone in this respect.
Fisher deserves better than this.
Cinnabon has some nerve using the death of a revered public figure to promote their brand, the shameless nature of the tweet implies that the company has issues with it’s value system.
You have to wonder what executive signed off on the tweet, and why they would actually go to the trouble of constructing a digital image to go along with it.
Believe it or not, millions of people were devastated by the news that Carrie Fisher is dead.
The last thing we want to see is irresponsible reaction from influential public figures, or national companies.
If you don’t have something heartfelt and meaningful to contribute to this tragedy, than keep your thoughts to yourself.
