Dan Abrams On Heath Ledger’s Death

Jim Burroway

January 26th, 2008

Dan Abrams did a great round-up and discussion on the homophobic reactions to actor Heath Ledger’s death.

Among the internet posts Abrams highlighted was this one, which has since been deleted from Yahoo! Answers:

Do You think Heath Ledger died because God was mad that he played a homo in that movie Brokeback Mountain? You never know, he works in mysterious ways

The encouraging thing: all of the responses took the questioner to task for posing such a stupid question.
