  • The Media and stuff. Perth girl murdered in LA

    I know there are plenty of other similar and unsimilar examples, so I guess i am not trying to suggest this is new, or particularly exciting, but am I the only one that stuff like this riles?

    The headlines all refer to her as a porn star. Was her career choice related to her untimely demise? As best I can tell, it wasn't. What if a roof carpenter was killed by his sadistic missus. I dare say the headline wouldn't make mention of his career choice.

    I can understand for higher profile people where they have a media profile, but again, as far as I can tell she had no real media profile until this.

    So I do have a question:
    Is the media latching onto the fact she was a porn actress to sensationalise the death for better headlines, or, is this more about the fact that being a porn star/actor/actress is considered by mainstream society (or perceived) to be undesireable?

    This isn't the original story, but still illustrates the point:

    The death of a movie star is always headlines.
    Comes from us living our lives vicariously through others..







    (Yes it was on purpose).

            The West got to print a large photo of a hot looking girl with splendid chest on page three... They got to hang "pornstar" on the photo.

            I don't think that anything else happened there...

              (Redtube or youporn link, please, for "bad taste" prize of the day)

              :edit: FFS, she was about as much a "Perth girl" as russel crowe is an Aussie.

                  And I wasn't even trying to be ironic (or moronic) with that little gem either.

                  But appear to have succeeeeeeeded to some degree with the latter.

                  She's a girl and she's dead anyway.

                    Perth girl part is bullshit, she moved here from Singapore when she was 11yo then moved to LA when she was 13yo.
                    Hardly a resident

                      I agree I thought she was a Perth girl ie, was born and grew up here and moved to LA rather then effectively only visiting Perth while waiting for her connecting flight to LA

                        I thought the headline was in poor taste. Showed a massive lack of respect to the poor girl. Report it, sure. Just show a little tact.

                              God bless reporters and their *ahem* tact. Perth girl ... bahh humbag .. more like Perth tourist but seriously the poor girl is dead why cant the media learn to show a lil respect to the dead for crying out loud. Who cares if she was a porn star or a biomedical engineer. she was murdered by some evil bastard and has a family who is greiving. Reporters need to learn a little humanity. But its the same with anyone who sufers an untimely demise they always find the best way to make it scandaous or saucey regardless of whose reputation they soil.

                              RIP Felicia and may justice (or vigilantes whichever comes first) beat the living hell out of whoever did this.
