Disrespecting the deceased
Woah.png
One of the main reasons why the internet is almost never a good place
Nickname: Dead Disrespecters
Type: Toxic Move
Status: Very Active

Warning: You are not allowed to add any redeeming qualities to this article, such as there are some dead people worthy enough to disrespect, as doing so encourages discrimination. While it's true that there were dead people who did have flaws, that will still count as discrimination regardless; anyone who persists will be dealt with. And if someone made a redeeming qualities, you might get a susspension, worse, get banned.

Disrespecting the deceased refers to an act where instead of letting a person who died rest in peace, some people decide to poke fun at them and their corpses, defame and slander them, treat them as evil, and even celebrate their deaths all because they hate them. This act is notorious for being a very toxic move.

Examples

  1. Many K-pop fans celebrated the death of the Dolan Twins' father in response to a comment Grayson made about K-Pop idols fainting on-stage.
    • Speaking of which, they also celebrated the death of Stan Lee, and the tragic arson of Kyoto Animation where 35 people died in a fire.
    • Some K-pop haters celebrated the deaths of Sulli and Goo Hara.
  2. A user from TheTopTens called NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva made a list of 10 Celebrities Who Deserved To Die in 2018 and celebrated the death of the celebrities he hates such as Stephen Hawking, Stephen Hillenburg, Stan Lee, XXXTentacion, Avicii, etc. Even celebrated the Manchester Concert Bombing which killed twenty-three people. Another 3 users named Dcfnaf, WWEWBMortalKombatFan and iliekpiez also made fun of XXXTentaction's death.
  3. The fans of Logan Paul forgave him after the infamous Suicide Forest incident. However, they only showed sympathy for Logan instead of the dead person who committed suicide in the forest.
  4. An internet troll named #PS5MasterRace had made a video making fun of a Nintendo fan named Chris Taylor who had died of cancer. It received extremely negative feedback from viewers and was even considered to be even worse than Logan Paul's Suicide Forest video. It got so bad, that his old account got terminated as a whole.
    • Not only he disrespected Chris Taylor's death, but on his Sony Soldier account, he made fun of Satoru Iwata's death when he died from bile duct cancer back in July 2015. Also, he made a suicide joke about Etika's death.
  5. Most of the Thomas the Tank Engine fans from the Thomas community use the "Awdry is rolling in his grave" phrase over the stupidest things from the franchise they don't like. The biggest example goes to how they reacted about how "Big World! Big Adventures!" and Season 22 were announced. Showing evidence they are complete hypocrites that claim to respect Awdry's legacy, yet they say he is "rolling in his grave" over the things about the Thomas franchise they don't like.
  6. The hatedom of Linkin Park is known to constantly demonize Chester Bennington as if he was some kind of Satanist. Just because he committed suicide doesn't mean he was a Satanist! Try to call them out and you're gonna have a bad time. Even if your not a fan of Linkin Park and try to defend Chester in any way, they will still attack you.
  7. After 15 year old Amanda Todd committed suicide due to being constantly bullied since she was blackmailed into her showing her breasts on a webcam, people created memes about her that lasted until late 2016.
  8. Michael Jackson haters almost drove Paris Jackson to suicide just for being Michael Jackson's daughter and demonizing her. They often try to ruin his legacy and reputation with the slanderous Leaving Neverland documentary and for money. (Like what Michael Jackson said, leave him alone!)
  9. Some of those who use cancer insults might make fun of people's family member for dying of cancer.
  10. Conspiracy theorists think that whenever a celebrity dies, it's the fault of the Illuminati and say that they've been blood sacrificed.
  11. Some Anti-Christians celebrate the deaths of Christians. Also even worse, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama made a tweet calling Christians "Eastern Worshippers" while they commented that on a tweet of the Sri Lanka Church Bombings.
  12. CNN was widely criticized by the Anime Community for disrespecting the dead staff of Kyoto Animation and cannot put out its agenda as they implied that KyoAni shows are aimed for men which is not true and ignoring the fact that there were female staff who died there too! (35 people lost their lives and CNN and other MSM have to spin a narrative that means absolutely nothing. People died regardless of their gender. This is a tragic event, and it should be reported with dignity and without bias.)
  13. The haters of Cameron Boyce were happy that he died of seizures (for example, as shown in the infobox). Some misused the hashtag "#ripcameronboyce", thus showing their hypocrisy. Also there is a challenge that made fun of Cameron Boyce.
  14. The fans of Joker insulted the families of the victims of the Aurora, Colorado Dark Knight Rises shooting for refusing to show the film. They even went as far as to insult both the surviving and deceased victims of the shooting.
  15. Whenever someone dies and it makes the news (like recently Kobe Bryant) there are people out there who can’t help but make an insensitive joke about the person that died “must’ve had something on....(Hillary/Trump/Obama etc.)”.
    • Even worse that a journalist named Felicia Sonmez from Washington Post disrespected Kobe Bryant's death after she posted a disturbing tweet that sparked outrage.
  16. Some China haters disrespected the Chinese who died from the coronavirus by making offensive memes of the coronavirus.
  17. Rabid Anti-Communists celebrated the event where the plane which carries The Red Army Choir crashed which killed Valery Khalilov and 63 other members.
  18. A few haters of The Emperor's New Groove celebrated the death of Eartha Kitt (the voice of Yzma, the main villain of the film).
  19. Some SpongeBob SquarePants haters celebrated Stephen Hillenburg's death, ever since he died from ALS. Even fans disrespected it by not paying their respects to him. When some fans signed a petition to have the song “Sweet Victory” (which played at the end of the episode “Band Geeks”) to be played at halftime in Super Bowl LIII. After months of teasing, the actual halftime show finally came, and during Maroon 5's performance of some of their various songs, a 10-second clip of Squidward introducing “a true musical genius who needs no introduction”, then the opening horns played, but instead a performance of “Sicko Mode” by Travis Scott played.
  20. Some Batman haters disrespected the deaths of Bob Kane and Bill Finger all because they started the Batman franchise.
  21. Some people does not care about the tragic events of 9/11 and disrespect it by stating themselves that they will forget about it.
    • Believe it or not, there are other people who celebrate 9/11, which is also disrespectful due to the fact that almost 3,000 people died there.
  22. A really biased user on TheTopTens named Gamecubesarecool193 was glad over DisneyAnime1234's death, and other users even defend him by calling him a "joke user". Joke or not, you still shouldn't be glad over an innocent user's death.
  23. The RWBY fandom is known for disrespecting the late Monty Oum without realizing that RWBY wouldn't exist without this man.
  24. Some other people in the Art community are known for disrespecting Qing Han also known as Qinni, a very talented DeviantArt artist who passed away after a battle of cancer. However, they even stole and trace her art just to make profit, posting hate comments and misusing a popular hashtag known as #galaxiesforqinni on some unrelated stuff.
  25. There have been people on the internet saying they don’t care about Chadwick Boseman’s death for political reasons because apparently he’s another “elite Hollywood liberal”. In fact, even the haters of Chadwick Boseman celebrated his death over colon cancer.
  26. In September 2020, when a man named Ronnie McNutt committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a shotgun on a Facebook Livestream, a lot of trolls started to spread the suicide video like wildfire on sites like Twitter, TikTok, Instagram and Facebook. A lot of users unfortunately saw the the moment of the video where he kills himself after hanging up his phone and were traumatized, scarred or even caused them to go into panic attacks. Not to mention that children could possibly saw the video and were probably traumatized thanks to these heartless idiots.
  27. After Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, both the left-wing and the right-wing disrespected her death: the left-wing acted like it was the end of the world, and the right-wing disrespected her legacy with bashing opinions on abortion.
  28. Some conspiracy theorists believe that certain people, such as JFK Jr, are still alive. This makes no since because JFK Jr. (along with his wife and sister-in-law) has been dead for more than 2 decades and that his body was already identified after being discovered from the plane wreckage located in the Atlantic Ocean.
  29. Although many members in the #IStandWithVic community paying respects to Brad Venable, even though he supported KickVic, some members were mocking his death only because he supported the KickVic movement.
  30. Some fans of the NFL team the Cleveland Browns are actually happy that Art Modell died in 2012 because of him infamously moving the team to Baltimore (Now known as the Baltimore Ravens) and because of this the Browns re-expanded into the league in 1999.
  31. Cannon Hinnant, a 5-year-old white boy who was murdered by Darius Sessoms, a black man, was mocked by radical Black Lives Matter supporters.
    • To add salt in the wound, the mainstream media (with the exception of Fox News, who even criticized other MSM news outlets for refusing to report the story) never reported the tragedy of the child's death. Not only is this considered dead disrespecting, it's also a big example that the news in general has really gone down the gutter.
  32. Speaking of the radical Black Lives Matter, during the 2020 riots, they disrespected the deaths of heroes by tearing down many statues like George Washington and Winston Churchill.
    • They even damaged the World War II memorials for the soldiers who died to keep the world safe.
  33. A lot of Social Justice Warriors, particularly on Twitter were celebrating Rush Limbaugh's death, and even stooped as low as to use "cancer" as an insult on him, to make fun of how he had cancer. Sure, he was a jerk at times, but that doesn't eliminate the fact that celebrating his death is a wrong thing to do.
    • Cristela Alonzo, a comedian from Netflix's Cristela Alonzo: Lower Classy and voice actor of Cruz Ramirez from Pixar's Cars 3 even disrespected Rush Limbaugh's death with the tweet "Happy Rush Limbaugh Is Dead Day! I didn't even get the chance to put my tree up!", and the tweet "I hope hell is him having to listen to every episode of his show." She also doubled down stating that she was not sorry and instead later, she focused on saying she needed help through the winter storm during the recent frozen wind turbines and power outage crisis from her home state of Texas. Therefore, this makes her a hypocrite since she denies all of her wrongdoings she made earlier on the same day.
  34. Although not really from an individual, 2K Sports had the idea to put Kobe Bryant for the cover art in NBA 2K21, but in a Deluxe Version (or known as the Mamba Forever Edition) that's more expensive than the Standard one. This is not only just disrespectful, but it's literally profiting off from a dead person. And coming from a company that's owned by Take-Two Interactive, it's no surprise they would do it for the money.
  35. A small YouTuber called Flzzzy uploaded a video of his friend disrespecting an entire graveyard for clout.
  36. Memetastic is another example disrespected the dead, as when one of his Discord moderators took a break because one of the moderator's friend's committed suicide, Memetastic thought it was a good idea to mock his suicide.
  37. Onision on June 11, 2016 wrote very controversial comments on his Twitter account about Christina Grimmie's death. He typed "Christina gets shot and you all prayed for her. 1. If your god cared she would not have been shot. 2. You prayed, she still died. Wake Up" Onision has faced severe backlash on what he wrote on Twitter. Onision has apologized, stating that he didn't intend to hurt people's feelings.
  38. Both Social Justice Warriors and the Alt-Right/Centrist Obsessive Anti-SJWs will disrespect a notable figure's (celebrities, politicians, etc) death out of political spite, all because they are either liberals, conservatives, Democrats, Republicans, LGBT, straight, white, race minorities, feminists or anti-feminists. Which is not a relevant reason to dislike them. To add insult to injury, they usually wish death or destruction of their careers.
  39. On Dr. Seuss' birthday this year, Cancel Culture and Left-Wing SJWs disrespected his death by calling 6 of his books 'offensive' for very unknown reasons. To make matters worse, the company stopped publishing those 6 books because of the outrage mob.
  40. When Jacksepticeye announced that his father passed away on January 27, 2021, many trolls (including Gacha) made hateful memes and videos about Jack's father.
  41. Some of the DC haters celebrated the death of Zack Snyder's daughter, Autumn.
  42. Many Twitter users have made unfunny and cruel jokes about the death of Prince Phillip.
  43. When Markiplier announced that his niece (Miranda Cracraft) passed away on June 24, 2018, on an unknown date, countless automated bot accounts have posted memes about this that can be found in the Newest First comment section of the video. They also reply to the regular comments on the video. The bots also appear on this video.
    • Some of these bot accounts have also done the same exact thing to Peter from Crazy Caboose Creations (who was only 16 years old and lost his life from a failed heart surgery (had cerebral hypoxia to his brain) on April 18th, 2021), and DanTDM's pug named Peggy (who passed away on September 16, 2017).
      • What's more problematic is that YouTube has not terminated these bot accounts, which means they will continue to spam disrespectful comments and memes.
  44. When George Floyd died, a few channels that are called George Floyd Gaming mocked his death by using his face in their videos, and making money off of their videos. They also attacked, raided, and hacked people who told the truth about them.
  45. When American rapper DMX passed away at the age of 50 from a fatal heart attack, a troll user on YouTube known as Jeremy Gears (sometimes called Jerry Gears due to alt accounts) made a few videos mocking the death of him.
    • This troll user did the same thing mocking the death of Markiplier's niece and even Jacksepticeye's father. Both of these videos have been critically panned.

Why It Sucks

  1. It is emotionally traumatizing to the dead person's family, as well as anyone who were friends with the dead person, and could drive any of the aforementioned people to suicide.
  2. They'll attack anyone who rightfully calls them out for their behavior. They'll scream "MUH FREE SPEECH", "CENsoRsHiP", wrongfully call them "butthurt" and call them out for being sensitive.
    • If you're not careful with them, some of them might even try to doxx you.
  3. They try way too hard to be edgy.
  4. They use dark humor (or sometimes, "fReE sPeeCH") as an excuse to justify their despicable actions or so they can get cheap laughs from other people.
  5. They don't just disrespect dead celebrities or dead people in general, they also disrespect dead animals (e.g. cat and dog haters celebrate whenever cats/dogs get killed/eaten by wild animals).
  6. They also like beating dead horses about people who passed away a long time ago (i.e. Amy Winehouse).
  7. They will literally refer to you as "politically correct/PC police" if you call them out on disrespecting dead people.
  8. They are almost everywhere on the internet.
  9. Thanks to their behavior, they managed to bring chaos to a lot of communities.
  10. They even go as low as to use the "turning in someone's grave" idiom term to show enormous anger, disfavor, or regret for something that happens after one has died. This has been really noticeable how people kept on saying that as an excuse to express their detesting rage against something they are upset with a franchise for.
    • Clearly, it's considered rude and really disrespectful because it's a sign of showing no care about the deaths or cremations of famous and popular people who are no longer living, from politicians, to comedians, to actors, to cartoonists, to music artists, to even writers. It is not limited to:
      • George Carlin
      • Chuck Jones
      • Walt Disney
      • Charles M. Schultz
      • Bob Clampett
      • Stephen Hillenburg
      • Robin Williams
      • Amy Winehouse
      • Brittany Murphy
      • William Hanna and Joseph Barbera
      • Mel Blanc
      • Tex Avery
      • Dr. Seuss
      • Thomas Jefferson
      • Michael Jackson
      • George Washington
      • Jim Henson
      • Wilbert Vere Awdry
      • Abraham Lincoln
      • Kurt Cobain
      • Martin Luther King Jr.
  11. This move can make anyone extremely heartless as they would not care about the deceased person nor their good qualities.
  12. Like we warned you above, it's still an unacceptable move when used on people that did have flaws, because any sort of disrespect to the deceased counts as discrimination.
  13. Some of them are trolls who can be sockpuppets and therefore spam tons of comments to disrespect the deceased.

Just wait until the news makes an actual statement in the future that one of these people, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden has passed away, especially if it's Joe Biden who died. Imagine how the Anti-SJWs and conservatives are gonna react to that one by one. Sure I despise those 4 politicians, but they don't deserve to be treated badly when they die. That's not any better when the far-left group, Black Lives Matter disrespected Cannon Hinnant's death just because he was white.

Example number 33 makes me throw up. Just because Rush Limbaugh was a conservative and a controversial person does not mean he deserves to be treated like that.

What's even worse is that Cristela Alonzo, the voice actor of Cruz from Cars 3 was one of the many people who celebrated the death of that man. She needs to be on the Celebtards list.

At this point it is justifiable to say that moral guardians are disrespecting the dead such as they blame entertainment industry for shootings, for example when the Colombian School shooting happened they blamed a random musician, that just make me so sick, not only are they avoiding responsibility and blaming innocent people, but what they did was also very disrespectful to the victims and the families that actually care for their family members
