Breaking a story is not worth breaking a heart

As if it wasn’t bad enough that some over-eager random ghouls decided to broadcast the sad news about Mick before the family had even had the chance to release an official statement, DigVentures has now learned that the privacy of this fabulous man and his family is about to be further violated.

Because the family have maintained their right to remain private about the circumstance of Mick’s death, there are some within the press that are speculating that he took his own life.

It’s beyond rubbish, it’s beyond disrespectful, it’s incredibly painful for all who knew him and it should be stopped.

To everyone who may hear or see this anywhere – help Mick by not sharing the news, by NOT retweeting it or otherwise acknowledging it, unless it’s to post a comment letting the reporter know that they’re wrong, and they should retire back to whatever scum-sucking corner of the universe they crawled out of.
