Swedish DJ Avicci recently died by suicide at 28. His family confirmed the cause of death in a statement.
“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.”
TMZ recently reported details on how he died by suicide with graphic details, and late Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots singer Chester Bennington’s widow Talinda and Mike Shinoda’s wife Anne aren’t happy.
Shinoda’s wife tweeted, “If you want to be respectful of the person who has passed and their family and friends, step in front of your curiosity. Your click on that page is your vote. Your click tells them that you want more articles like these. Your click pays them for violating privacy & grieving space.”
Talinda Bennington retweeted Anna Shinoda’s message and added her own thoughts, also encouraging people to not read TMZ’s article.
“Please, please, DO NOT click on the TMZ article or any other about the private details of Avicii’s passing. This is how WE can stop #filthytmz,” Talinda Bennington tweeted.
She later wrote about a Heavy.com article about her tweets, “Thank you for the article. I would like to politely ask you to change your verbiage a bit though. It is shaming and stigmatizing to say ‘committed suicide.’ Deepest gratuity if you could write ‘Died by suicide’. Thank you @heavysan.”
