Yeah, first I heard of this story was a news report on T.V.
They were just about to go to commercial and mentioned the plane crash as a “tease” to keep viewers through the commercial break, “details to follow” kinda thing.
Paraphrased, they said: “Deaths in a plane crash in South Carolina including celebrities among the injured.”
I immediately changed the channel. Wasn’t until I opened this Thread that I learned the details. Really really low class.
If it was a minor crash that only resulted in a few injuries, and two celebrities were among the injured, and they “teased” the story with something like “When we return: two celebrities among the injured in a plane crash”, it still would have been tacky but I would concede that in a minor crash there would be human interest to be mined from the celebrity presence.
But mentioning that there were actual deaths as a lead up the the big story that celebrities were injured???
