This tweet sums it up...

The SECOND saddest thing about what’s happened to Caroline Flack is the fact that we won’t learn one single thing from it.

 

Not the public, not the press, not the online community, none of us.

 

We’ll shake our heads, blame each other, then decide who we’re going to do it to next.

What was all this bad press she was getting? Was it because of the assault she carried out or has it been going on for a while. 
 

I’ve no clue who’s she is

My Mrs actually twatted me over the head with an alarm clock once when I was in bed, we're still married after 24 years btw.

Must have been a wake up call for you both 😁

My ex missus threw a bedside lamp at me once when I told her I was off out in the piss.

It just came at me at about 100mph and I had no time to react. Then, suddenly, it stopped dead in mid air right in front of me. It was like those bullets in the matrix.

turned out it was still plugged into the wall.

i was divorced shortly after.

Did she get convicted for it and do 24 years behind bars? 😂

Anybody who takes their own life is a sad end to any life 

Not sure the blame can be pinned on the media without not knowing what was going on in her head

Isn't this all connected though? Very superficial, window dressing type stuff. Today's headlines and tomorrow's chip papers.

I get what casino is saying; all about social media likes, being "in" in the press. Its all here today and gone tomorrow- a superficial existence. A circle or maybe downward spiral.

Sometimes think these folk need to just walk the dog, have a bonfire, put some old clothes on and go to a match or slop about a bit.

Forget about keyboard cunts, in fact leave them to it. Just do normal shit.

Not been following it but Did the press harass her ?  If not and they just reported the assault can’t see how they are to blame never watched love island sounds a load of bollocks

Suicide is tragic. The never knowing and longing to be able to help if you couldve and if you only knew what was going on in that persons head, But all you are left with is what ifs and if only and even then would you of been able to help. 

its the most awful thing ever and helpless thing I hope she’s found peace. 

we don’t know the circumstances and what was going on before the media storm. The press she received wouldn’t of helped her situation at all. 
 

it’s a horrible thing for all involved and will be forever. 
 

Hug the ones you love.

my initial feeling is I don't think it's connected

plenty of other people involved in love island, x factor and come dancing have not killed themselves - and plenty have come under scrutiny at some point

i sort of get it with the contestants (that topped themselves) on love island who probably wanted fame who did themselves in because their whole reason for going on there in the first place is to try and get noticed and make it, but, that might not even be why they did it

but I don't accept it for established media personalities, which she was

the press didn't get her all those gigs

and I doubt they killed her

this article seems to report what had gone on:

https://news.sky.com/story/caroline-flack-boyfriend-lewis-burton-sent-i-love-you-valentines-message-before-her-death-11935269

After being charged with assault in December, Flack had been banned from having any contact with Burton ahead of a trial, which was due to take place in March.

Flack, 40, also posted on Instagram on Friday, sharing photos of her French bulldog, Ruby, after largely staying away from social media in the wake of the assault charge.

easy to blame the press and social media but i imagine she had a lot going on in her head leading up to and following the arrest that probably drove her to do what she did

It amazes me how hard people find it to keep their opinions to themselves after tragic events like this. Weird.

Imagine any kind of social media platform; this one included, where nobody gave an opinion on anything.

I know what you mean, but it just feels a bit different when it involves someone who took their own life less than 24 hours ago. Each to their own I suppose.

It amazes me that you are able to make any thread into a contrarian at work 'cheese show'. 

Were not talking about anyone we actually know here. No opinions stated so far have been too left field. 

I suggest we all have a 24 hour moratorium on commenting on any current news just in case we offend cheese.
