Rest In Peace, Sir Christopher Lee
By: Cliff Davenport
I’m also angry this morning to read of several websites, notably MediaMass, profiteering off of this sad news with claims that his passing is, in fact, a hoax. It is not. Nor, I’ve learned, is this the first time they’ve claimed such a thing of others.
I can hardly fathom the moral corruption one must possess to think that such disrespect of the recently deceased qualifies as “satire,” as they claim.
“The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.”
There is nothing humorous or ironic about this, save perhaps for the fact that another hoax (of Sir Lee’s death) was perpetrated against him while he yet lived just days ago. There is neither exaggeration nor ridicule in their hoax; there is merely a fake story contrived to attract the gullible and the grieving toward a false sense of hope and relief.
Such a deception is not only unprofessional; it is shameful. It is disrespectful.
It is mean-
Sir Christopher Lee deserved better than this.
