That being said, I agree about mocking things after a while. Generation Z (the 8-15 set) – the ones that are creating/consuming the “Dank Memes” loves making fun of 9-11, terrorists, conspiracy theorists, and any celebrity, alive or dead, and in a sense, I salute them for making themselves somewhat immune to emotional manipulation by media by mocking anything and everything.
That being said, the guy *did* just die like, today? yesterday?
Then again, in 1986, the Space Shuttle BLEW UP on my 14th Birthday, which happened to be a day off on a Tuesday.
Wednesday we go back to school and the jokes *already* started. So, it’s a normal part of dealing with things like death or the celebrity machine that are bigger than we can cope with. We make jokes and laugh. It’s human.
