Following the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary that killed twenty children and six adults, X Factor guest star, Ke$ha’s song “Die Young” has been removed from radio playlists. Keep reading for more details.
According to Entertainment Weekly, “Die Young” was topping the charts at number three when the Sandy Hook massacre occurred. And afterward, it didn’t take long for the song to plummet to the bottom. Considering the senseless loss of life and the tender ages of the victims, it’s obvious nobody wants to hear a song about dying young.
On Friday, after what FBI profilers say was “considerable preparation,” 20-year-old Adam Lanza smashed his computers and killed his mother by shooting her in the head four times while she slept in her bed, according to The Lookout. And then he proceeded to Sandy Hook Elementary with a stockpile of weapons and ammunition where he shot and killed another twenty-six people that included twenty children and six adults.
Although Lanza destroyed his computers with a hammer and a screwdriver, the FBI’s Computer Analysis and Response Team are working around the clock and are hopeful they can find some information that would suggest why Lanza would carry out such a heinous crime, especially on young innocent children.
As the Sandy Hook community and the nation at large grieves for those who were lost on Friday, and try to cope and make sense of what has happened, the last thing we need to hear on the radio is song lyrics about dying young.
Our thoughts, prayers, and deepest condolences are with everyone affected by the Sandy Hook tragedy.
