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 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.”

      You are a doucebag. Personal details don’t need to be released. That was the whole point of the article

        Then why doesn’t his family sue? I don’t think it’s right to keep secrets from fans. Actually had fans believing he had some sort of disease and he really killed himself. Maybe due to the lies that originally came out after his death, maybe his manager didnt seek to give him help he needed.

    It’s offensive to say committed suicide? Did he not make the COMMITMENT to kill himself? I feel like the term “die by suicide” sounds more like an accident and I don’t think he accidentally slit his wrists.

      Thats the world we live in now, everything offends someone!
      I have had multiple friends commit suicide, and saying “died by” instead of “committed” doesn’t lessen the blow a bit!!

        I’m offended that you’re saying everything offends someone. It’s offensive to assume that I may be offended. I am offended that you’re offended by others for feeling offended about anything.

    TMZ said Chris Cornell had fresh track marks so they can go fuck themselves. These sites have always been sleazy tabloid gossip.
