In the days following the loss of Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, the band has released an official statement.
In response to the band’s statement, fans have continued to reach out and show affection for the late singer.
Linkin Park was scheduled to go on tour with Blink-182 this summer. However, after the tragedy of Chester’s passing, Blink-182 has announced they are canceling the shows.
In the hours after Chester Bennington’s death was announced, someone gained control of his wife Talinda’s Twitter account.
The tweets made false accusations and offensive statements about Chester.
Fans urged whoever was behind the hack to stop.
In the wake of a tragedy like this, it’s unfortunate that online trolls would victimize the grieving.
