Because I don’t get this, maybe y’all can answer this for me.
Directioners, Britney fans, Sones, and other fandoms.
I know most of you do not feel this way, and a lot of you probably don’t know what I’m talking about. As far as Directioners, last night there was a lot of beef over the MTV Italy awards, but honestly, most of you guys looked pretty chill and nice, and a lot of you didn’t even seem to care that Big Bang won. So, this isn’t at all of you.
But I’m addressing these fandoms because this is where I’ve seen this particular comment from. I’m addressing these fandoms, because some of you have joked about this, and I don’t understand it.
Why is it funny to joke about death?
Those of you who know what I’m talking about know that Daesung from Big Bang was involved in a fatal car accident last year that took the life of a young motorcyclist. The authorities deemed that it wasn’t his fault, but Daesung was so hurt that this happened and he paid for the young man’s funeral expenses, and went to the funeral, and spoke to his family members privately to apologize again for their son & brother’s death.
A lot of antis took this opportunity to call him a murderer, because they’re dicks with nothing better to do, basically, and they grossly misunderstand the concept of murder. (Murder isn’t causing death, murder is deliberately killing someone, or doing something to them that you know could kill them and not caring. At the most, what happened with Daesung was manslaughter, and the police determined it wasn’t his fault, so clearly it was only an accident.)
Where YOUR fandoms come in (except Sones, because you’re a K-pop fandom, so you knew since it happened. I have no idea why some of you choose to be Big Bang antis, since you’re a girl group and Big Bang is a boy band…), is that both of your artists lost to Big Bang in recent MTV awards.
Britney Spears in the MTV EMA Best Worldwide Act award.
One Direction in the MTV Italy TRL Best Fans award.
Let me ask you, seriously, and I’m not even trying to be funny… but why, then, did some of you deem it acceptable to start trolling and saying that Big Bang is a “group with a murderer” in it.
I could never figure out why this makes me so mad, because usually when people troll my groups, I troll back, or ignore it, because trolling is stupid and childish. But that particular statement just bothered me.
I just realized why. It’s not even because of Big Bang, or Daesung. It’s because someone died. Someone died, and you guys are making light of it, because your POP ACT lost a pointless MTV award to another POP ACT. Because One Direction lost the MTV Best Fan award to Big Bang, you deemed it acceptable to joke about someone else’s death.
Where are your priorities?
Now, you have Britney Spears, and One Direction. BRITNEY SPEARS AND ONE DIRECTION. Do you know how many awards they both have and will win in their careers? How many awards that matter SO MUCH MORE than an “EMA” or a “TRL Award”?
So, you could spare those two actually rather pointless awards, and just forget about it, right? It doesn’t affect Britney’s long amazing career, or the fact the One Direction are basically the biggest boyband in the world, and only growing in fame, popularity, and recognition.
But, no. You take a tragedy, and make light of it because your boy band or pop princess lost.
Daesung’s a “murderer”, because he didn’t slam on brakes in time. But you’re not a dick for making light of some young guy’s death because your pop group lost.
And I know every fandom has it’s good and it’s bad. I know Directioners just had an incident with Niall’s cousin on twitter, and a lot of other Directioners were angry at the girls that did that to her. So, I see that you guys have hearts, and brains, and a lot of you are logical and kind. Same with Britney fans, you guy’s most recent thing is caring for this little boy who has cancer, because Britney tweeted about it.
I’m not saying your fandoms are bad.
I’m just saying, could you please try to use reason, when you lose? And could you please try to tell the crazy people in your fandoms that it’s not funny to joke about someone’s death, ever, in any capacity?
Some of you may argue “it’s not about the young man’s death, but about Daesung’s action.” Which, okay, cool… but this is STILL an incident that is very serious, and shouldn’t be made light of.
Because most of you people say it JUST to get under VIPs skin. Not because you think the world needs rescuing from Daesung, but because you want to make fans angry and argue back with you.
Or you just want to amuse yourself and another group of fans. “OMG, I can’t believe One Direction lost to a group with a murderer in it.” Seriously? How is that type of joking considered okay?
Damn. Please, call him gay, call him ugly, say he can’t sing or dance…
But don’t joke about the most painful incident in his life, and the lives of the victim’s family. YOU seem like more of a monster than Daesung ever was.
Also, when you say “murderer” you evoke the images of a man with a knife walking around slashing people’s throats. It’s the wrong word. You people KNOW it’s the wrong word, you just want to make people angry.
Which is what’s sick about it.
Seriously, if you find it funny or cool to call Daesung a murderer, simply because you know it will piss off fans, YOU NEED HELP. You sound like a sociopath.
Damn. At least find something better to joke about. And with Big Bang, there are tons of things. You can even call GD a drug addict, I’m more okay with that, than the murderer thing. That is not funny at all.
Look, if you think that’s funny, please… avoid all vehicular travel from now on, and definitely never drive. If you think vehicular deaths are funny in ANY capacity, I never want you behind the wheel.
