The Daily Telegraph Disrespects Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Death By Calling Him A “Junkie”

From Screen Crave.

Given the tragedy that was the news of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death this morning, you’d think that major publications would walk a respectful line. Though, it’s evident that the Daily Telegraph feels justified in being disrespectful, headlining their front page with the chilling words, “KIDS GRIEVE FOR JUNKIE ACTOR DAD”. While the world media published carefully-worded stories regarding the late husband and father’s passing, the Tele chose to mock PSH’s admitted years of/struggle with sobriety and the label in which they chose to do so with was disgraceful and appalling.

For those in doubt, the Google cache does not lie…


They of course did not hesitate in exploiting his death either; their website is draped in PSH stories already, with the first four alone based on him.

It is well-known that the Daily Telegraph is good for well, lining bird cages only, but it’s doubtful that anyone would think they’d so blatantly disrespect the tragic death of a father.

It seems now that the Tele has responded to feedback from the public and have since changed the headline to, “Revealed: Seymour Hoffman’s last hours” (note their sudden lack of caps). Unfortunately for the Tele, the internet does not forget and their disrespect has been shared by many.

Rest in peace Philip Seymour Hoffman. Kindest and deepest condolences to his family.
