Weirdest thing about celebrity deaths in this day and age: It appears as if there was initially that skepticism that the news was real in this Twitter-Hoax age, then confirmation from her friends and actual news sources, then bickering amongst people that they were bigger fans of hers than others and that there was no way that the number of people who were expressing grief were real fans. Just a weird and sad thing to witness.
@Questlove of the Roots seems to be ground zero for a lot of the backlash (at least from Twitter feeds I follow). Again, just weird and sad.
