People start to praise people after they die.

Dude, I'm on your side.
I couldn't tell you the last time I gave a **** about Robin Williams and neither could any of these ******* .
This is the same as when a new game comes out and we get 3 days of brace yourselves posts.
Red thumbs commence.

Everyone praises them while they're alive but once they die it's like the BANG of a balloon all the praise suddenly seems more visible.

When you finally kick it ill be the first to tell your mother what a cunt you were, no thanks necessary.

Pretty similar to the concept "You don't know what you have until it's taken from you."

We don't SUDDENLY love these people more than ever. It's the feelings we always had, just suddenly released by the tragedy that we will see no more of them.

its called a tribute. An obituary. A vigil. A mourning.

Yeah, but he got praise when he was alive as well. You either like him or you're wrong.

I thought his movies were good.

I don't care for people dick riding his corpse just because he's a dead famous person though.

It's Micheal Jackson all over again.

Except it's possible that people could actually be sad, you know?

I agree.

But I have a hard time believing that Robin Williams effected this much of FunnyJunk. Most of whom are 14-18. It's just not their era. Robin Williams was mainly a 80's and 90's thing. At most, maybe the early part of the 2000's.

Although the chance that he effected the JunnyFunk populace in a big way is not zero, it is far more likely that the older FunnyJunkers are actually upset and the rest are on the dead celebrity bandwagon. Like with Micheal Jackson.

I, personally, am upset by the fact that Genie from Aladdin is dead. But that's as far as I go. I'm 23 and spent most of my childhood playing videogames. He didn't make a big impact on my life and feel no inclination to hop on the dead celeb band wagon.

A majority of thumbers are anons, though, who could be any age.

Also, it is still possible to watch Robin William's movies, even though they haven't come out recently. I happen to love the actor Alan Ada, from MASH, and that show is WAY before my time. I'd be just as remorse if he were the one that died.

I could talk to you like this

Or like this.

And yes, I suppose movies are timeless. But honestly, who on funnyjunk (average age 14-18) is going to go out of their way to watch the bicentennial man? Not many people.

Not when they have "school" or "attack on titan" or "fallout 3" or "pokemon" or "failing at getting a girlfriend."

Yes, Robin Williams was a good actor, but if a young me was going to watch old movies, I would probably pick up "better off dead" or "Ferris Bueller" or a Bill Murrey Movie. I wouldn't have given two ***** about robin williams.

******* two part comments...
Anyways, you missed my point. The average age of users may be 14 - 18, but that doesn't include anonymous users.
Plus, 18 still isn't too old to have grown up with Aladdin. The movie was only 4 years old when they were born, probably 8 years old when they first enjoyed it. There's also Jumanji (1995), the second Aladdin movie (1996, when 18 year olds were born) Flubber (1997), Robots (2005), Night at the Museum (2006), RV (2006), Happy feet (2006), Night at the Museum 2 (2009), and Happy Feet 2 (2011). People had plenty of opportunities to know who he was and enjoy his movies, and I only mentioned the movies that I knew anything about, there are plenty more.

Wow, fanboy too much?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and opinions are never right nor wrong. I did like the guy, someone else didn't, end of the story.
User avatar #51 to #21 - chrispoot (08/12/2014) [-]
Some people DESERVES to be praised. He deserved it. That's why everyone is grieving over his death, and frankly, I am too.
#66 to #51 - Rascal (08/12/2014) [-]
You're making it look like he was a god among men. And he was just a man.

You see, I said, I did like the guy. I liked his films. But forcing that opinion unto others is absurd. RW, in the very end, wasn't any more special than your average Joe who dies every day, and no one mourns them as much. He was just more famous.

It's a pity that this person died, as it's a pity that others die. So what if someone doesn't care? Are you guys that stupid that you approve of phrases like "You either like him or you're wrong."? It certainly seems like it.
User avatar #67 to #66 - chrispoot (08/12/2014) [-]
No, I am no making him look like a "God", I'm just giving him the respect he deserved, from my side that is. Firstly, he was a very talented actor, who could star within Drama and Comedy. Secondly, he was a good person, not some ******* who went around ******** everywhere, he was actually a decently good human being.
And the reason he is everywhere now is because he have a huge influence and impact in many people's childhood/life. Many grew up with him, and thus, have emotionally "connected" with him.

Yologdog explained it for me, so I'll refer you to his comments.

That is true, but Robin Williams actually was an amazing person.

It's a big event, so yeah... Praise is also given when they're alive usually as well.
