What was the last celebrity death you were genuinely upset about? (1 Viewer)

The Paul Walker thread got me thinking about this. I'd say the last one was Heath Ledger or Chris Farley.

 
Given how he went out, ledger. Dude lost his mind creating one of the greatest characters ever.

 
None of them. I always feel for those friends and family of the deceased but unless I know the person it doesn't upset me. I will say that the older I get the more I'm reminded to make the most of each day and enjoy life. Nothing will stop the fate that we all will face.

 
I don't know these people. Roughly 155,000 people died yesterday if it was an average day. I didn't know any of them and only one of them made the papers. I feel bad for their families but no worse than I would feel for the other 154,999 families who lost someone on the same day.

The two celebs whose deaths truly touched me were FFA celebs. Shining Path and Chance.

 
I don't get upset when someone I don't know personally dies, but I do regret not seeing George Carlin perform before he died.

 
I don't get "shed a tear" upset about these deaths. I guess "pretty bummed" would be a better way to put it.

I'd say the last three that I felt anything about were David Foster Wallace, Ryan Dunn, and Jim Henson (two of whom have already been mentioned)

 
I have never been upset by a celebrity death. But Gandolfini's death earlier this year was of the "Dang, that sucks" variety.

 
Timberwolves player Malik Sealy...back in the days when the Timberwolves were relevant in the NBA. Tore an emotional hole in that team when he died...which was hard to watch as a fan.

just reminded me of Hank gathers.I was too young to appreciate it, had I been older I think that would have been rough.

Same here. Phil Hartman has probably been the only one I've reflected on, as his career was really blossoming and he died so needlessly.

Did cry when Bobby Kennedy died though.

 
Pat Morita is the only one that really bothered me and that's been awhile.

Other than that I feel like Celebs that are highly recognizable probably had a hell of a run and got to experience all types of thrills, highs, and awesomeness that I never will... so it's hard to feel sorry for them.

Almost would be an interesting poll... something to the extent... "if Justin Timblerlake died tomorrow but you were guaranteed to live to 85" What would you choose, to have lived his 30ish years, or to live your entire life. His run (and many celebs run)... the money, the women, the places he's been to and seen.... it would be tempting over 85 years of mediocrity

Maybe I think we are overly inundated with what celebrities are doing what but a person's death due to illness, cancer, murder, hit'n'run, or something in those realms... I feel bad about.

Someone who died due to actions he/she did such as speeding down a highway or taking drugs or jumping off a cliff, I have no time to grieve for. I think about their families and hope they are okay or will have answers at some point but I don't feel bad for the person who could have prevented their own death.

Suicides are a bit different as I hope the family is not left without answers.

There was a Yahoo! article yesterday about Kim Kardashian and Kanye in a bathroom taking a picture. She didn't have underwear on (duh). I didn't read it but is that what Yahoo! has been reduced to? Seriously?

JFK Jr. bummed me out. How many f'd up deaths could one family endure? Overall I don't get too bummed about people that have lived long, fulfilled lives. It was just their time. People who's lives were shortened due to no faul of their own always saddens me - celebrity or not. Honestly, I think when a person gets diagnosed with a debilitating illness like MS or Lou Gehrig's Disease it may even hit me harder with the road that lies in front of them.
