Why Do Hot People Die Young?

Print page

It seems like when you read the paper, good looking people seem to die young more than ugly people.

See this story:

It is terrible. Paul Walker died in a car accident and gets huge news coverage. 115 people die every day in vehicle accidents.

It is probably that the news media just covers the deaths of good looking people more than ugly people. Because people are infatuated with good looking people, which makes their shows more popular.

So, it really isn’t that hot people die young more than other poeple, it’s just that it sells more newspapers.

I’m wondering how we can prevent this from happening.

  1. This is a good current event but it really doesn’t give me much information on some things. I agree with you when you say why do famous people always have to have so much fame even when they die and other people that aren’t famous don’t even come up in the newspapers nor news?

  2. I agree that the media pays more attention to celebrities and their life, and when someone famous dies, they just forgot about all the innocent people that die every single day.
