Every death is a tragedy. Fame nor riches make the tragedy less. However the recent death of the Bee Gee Robin Gibb was tragic. He was a relativity young man of immense talent. He was loved and liked. He died surrounded by loved ones, with considerable bravery having fought a battle full of grace.
My sympathies are go to his family and his friends.
However today's article in the evermore downmarket Daily Mail is as sad as it is inevitable. The tabloid hackette Rebecca Hardy earns her crust by salacious muck raking over Robin's sex life, and what it terms his open marriage.
It is sadly par for the course that once a famous person dies the gutter press publish all the scandal and lies they were unable to before they died: the dead cannot sue.
It's pretty low to publish a hatchet job on the dead when they're not even buried.
It's shocking to witness the ever increasing gutterisation of the Daily Mail. They are becoming as worse as the redist of red top tabloids.
It's strange that the affairs, and financial scandal of not paying taxes of the Daily Mail's owner is never mentioned in their search for profit from 'scandal'.
My sympathies go to those Robin has left behind.
