Thanks to my good friends over at SUMOskinny.com, I came across this article about the late Whitey Houston. A
commendable disgusting tabloid posted a photo of her laying peacefully in a coffin on the cover. Which tabloid you may ask? Oh, none other than The National Enquirer (that, I may add, already annoys me because isn’t “inquire” spelled with an “i”?) I didn’t think they could stoop any lower…but they did. Whitney Houston’s untimely death, while controversial, is still sad for many people. Not only were her loyal fans crushed by this loss, but she had numerous friends and family members who were left distraught over her death.
Last week, Ms. Houston was laid to rest in her home state of New Jersey. Her wake and funeral were both private affairs, limited to solely friends and family. So who was the low-life to not only take a picture of her in the coffin (who DOES that?), but to most likely sell it to the press? To me that is not only an invasion of privacy, but something that goes way beyond your normal weirdo. Don’t get me wrong, her death is something that can’t be treated as “normal” since she is a public figure, but she should be allowed that one ounce of privacy she had left during her last few moments on Earth.
You can check out the picture by easily Googling it at this point, but I feel that it’s inappropriate for us to post it here. I’ve held back from doing a Whitney Houston post due to the mere fact that there are still so many questions with so few answers. In honor of Ms. Houston, I will leave you with my favorite song.
