Over the weekend, Will Leitch wrote a piece for Matter on how social media has turned celebrity death into, as Leitch puts it, “a public grieving competition.” As is usually the case with Leitch, it’s presented in a well written and well thought out manner.

(I think I’m overly setting this up as to quell any thought that this is a personal attack on Will, which is certainly not the case. I even attended the guy’s wedding!) Having said all that … I did find his piece on the reaction to Williams’ death as a cynical way of looking at people.
