When stan­ning be­comes hurt­ful and dan­ger­ous

J-14 - - Real Life -

When the world found out Mac Miller passed away due to an ap­par­ent drug over­dose, fans and celebri­ties ev­ery­where joined to­gether to share touch­ing tributes. This in­cluded Mac’s for­mer girl­friend, Ari­ana Grande. “I can’t be­lieve you aren’t here any­more,” she shared. “The kind­est, sweet­est soul with demons he never de­served. I hope you’re okay now. Rest.” But among all the love came hurt­ful com­ments to­ward Ari­ana, with some Mac fans go­ing so far as to blame Ari­ana for his death. The hate got so harsh that Ari­ana dis­abled com­ments and even­tu­ally took a break from so­cial me­dia.

In times like these, it’s im­por­tant to stop and think be­fore you post. Re­mem­ber that we all have feel­ings and tear­ing some­one down will only do more harm than good.
