Several people comment on Peaches Geldof's death
April 10 , 2014
Peaches Geldof died in a digital age where people have the ability to comment on her life and speculate her death. Tonya Gold of the Guardian isn't pleased with where this is headed. "The grunt of synthetic emotion was gruesome," she writes. Gold complained that silence isn't possible in the day and age of the hashtag.
"To me, it feels like entertainment posted on a random face a hand clutching blindly for something vivid," Gold writes. "Perhaps there is a connection between this sort of grief - which is not grief at all, but drama and distraction - and a growing deafness of spirit towards others."
