    Did they know each other? were there ANY signs? Why do people use Guns? I’ll never understand & maybe I don’t want to know…Blessings to her Family & to the killer’s
    family too…sad sad sad

  • Ino Crazy

    It’s totally normal for Americans to own a gun. As far as I know, they didn’t knew each other. I read somewhere that the killer wasn’t from Orlando so he went there just to do this to her and then he shot himself. I don’t know why he did that but he got away way to easily. He deserved to rot in jail for the rest of his life but he chose to easy way…

  • VanityInsecurity

    So that is what evil looks like.. #RIPChristina

  • Annette Verdugo

    Obvious Donald Trump supporter is obvious.

  • HomeyTheClown

    Thanks for your ignorant pearls of wisdom………..

  • dalovelee

    Stalkers are like cancers who appear out of nowhere. You can’t predict who is going to obsess on anyone and take it to this tragic extreme.

  • dalovelee

    He’s a stalker and crazy stalkers are unpredictable.

  • hiway280z

    You just showed your total ignorance and inability to understand what an article is about by posting such a stupid statement.

  • https://disqus.com/home/channel/lefthandnewsandpolitics/ sheltomlee

    Another mental patient with easy access to firearms.

  • Susan Knechtl

    you must be stupid ignorant liberal

  • Ulysses Joyce

    How in the world do you know he is a supporter of trump?What because he is a white cis gender male?

    Some girl lost her life ,can we keep the political and gender political garbage out.

  • Molly Malloy

    Stalking is a major problem in today’s world of social media and celebrity worship.

  • j k

    Wait what?

  • j k

    Sorry in advance if this sounds rude but what is the reason for them to make a funding page? To pay for what?

  • Molly Malloy

    I agree with you. As Michael Jackson said, you need to look in the mirror. May God forgive Christina’s killer.

  • Anna

    “May God forgive Christina for straying from the path of the Lord and permit her into heaven.”
    Holy shit, stfu.

  • Molly Malloy

    To pay for various debts and funeral expenses. She already paid to fund the rest of her tour, i.e. renting theaters, which obviously will no longer happen. It’s unfair to burden her parents.

  • Carmex

    EH? How the hell do you know Christina had a drug habit? What are you even talking about? The funding page is so the parents can only focus on the tough grief they are going through right now, and not needing to worry about financial worries.

  • Missskitttin

    Anna, you need to dust your reading comprehension skills. Read again. You will realize that you insulted the poster for no reason whatsoever….

  • Von

    He wanted to kill her, stabbing her would have been just as easy.
    I’ve lived in Scotland, stabbing deaths and crime just as prevalent as gun crime in U.S. per capital.

  • Missskitttin

    Who said anything about drugs??? Wow…

  • Missskitttin

    Your use (misuse) of Grammar is abhorrent.

  • Von

    Liberals are such nasty offensive people, they’ll use any situation to try to score a cheap political shot.

    To use this poor girls murder to make some stupid partisan slam that doesn’t even make sense.
    When the real problem is mental illness

  • dalovelee

    it is a serious problem for celebrities. People criticized Bieber for not wanting to sign autographs. Hell nooo he shouldn’t. In fact every celebrity should end that practice. They don’t know who is a sicko and who is a genuine fan. So they have all these random unknown to them people coming up close to them and crap like this happens. No one needs a celebs autograph.

  • Von

    Maybe you should leave your mothers basement and experience the real world if you think not using the correct grammar on some silly gossip site post is “abhorrent”

    What is “abhorrent” is a person using a brutal death to make a cheap partisan insult.

  • Von

    That’s why most celebrities have armed bodyguards.

  • Carmex

    The person edited her comment.

  • IDoNotTeach

    But why would they be burdened more than any other grieving parents? In fact, because she didn’t die of illness, there are no hospital bills to deal with. Her parents are upper middle class NJ suburbanites. The families of inner city victims need the money, not the Grimmie family.

  • IDoNotTeach

    I converted my dad. He first said that this is the price for using sex appeal to make a living. I had to point out that she had no sex appeal and relied on talent. After I showed him her videos, he agreed that she had no sex appeal. He also wanted to buy tix to her next Christian concert. A new fan!

  • A Third World America

    Another liberal defective who needed to be flushed from society. But sure, blame the gun, of course.

  • A Third World America

    Nope. A liberal defective who felt “entitled” to her love.

    A Trump supporter would have justly assassinated a politician instead.

  • A Third World America

    America wants God out of the classroom and public life. This is the result.

  • A Third World America

    I’m convinced he was obsessed with her and she probably didn’t return his communications so he decided to kill her for it.

  • https://disqus.com/home/channel/lefthandnewsandpolitics/ sheltomlee

    You’re trying to convince people that it’s just as easy to kill with a blade than it is with a multi-round clip on a semi automatic gun? Really? That makes sense to you does it?

    Yeah because that’s why all these mass killers are toting 30 knives instead of 30 rd magazines for guns, right genius?

    This is why we can’t have an honest conversation about anything in this rotten, Godforsaken country. People like you take intractable, extremist positions on EVERYTHING and frame issues so ridiculously it wards people off from even wanting to talk or deal with you.

    “stabbing deaths and crime just as prevalent as gun crime in U.S. per capital.”

    I think you mean “per capita” dumbass. And no, you’re wrong. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/jun/24/blog-posting/social-media-post-says-uk-has-far-higher-violent-c/

    ” How the hell do you know Christina had a drug habit?”
    She said NOTHING about a drug habit. Might need to adjust your glasses a touch there. She was referring to all the things that go into when someone passes away. Any debts she may have had in life. Not fair to place them all on the heads of her family at this time. So its to help them by making the financial burden of her death easier on them and they can concentrate upon their grief.

  • 😼HH😼

    DUMBEST POST TODAY..thank you for that. Their daughter is murdered and you are worried about their financial standing in life?

  • 😼HH😼

    ok..BAD GUN…BAAAAD GUN. STOP Killing people Gun. Are you stupid?

    Actually, it’s one of the most intelligent posts because it relied on logic, not emotions. Someone asked a question and s/he replied OBJECTIVELY. Read the ENTIRE thread again. IDoNotTeach’s reply was neither insulting or accusatory. Rather than insulting him/her, try answering the question posed. Why is it not a VALID question? How are the Grimmie’s more burdened than any other victim’s parents? Why shouldn’t those people, especially poorer ones, get donations too? Or are you saying we shouldn’t be skeptical consumers, like the original poster who asked the question was? As for the daughter being murdered, are YOU really deluded enough to think that the parents are reading these posts on JustJared??? Do yourself a favor and lay off the insults like “DUMBEST” because it just makes you look childish. THINK ABOUT IT.

  • disqus_ZQe7rsmVSv

    Really?

  • disqus_ZQe7rsmVSv

    Sounds like PR betrayed her whereabouts to a hitman.

  • disqus_ZQe7rsmVSv

    Just as I refuse to listen to an out of control hothead like you.

  • Farty Fartsalot

    I suppose I’d feel like shooting someone if I was 27 & had hair like that…

  • Anna

    The person edited it. I literally copied and pasted their sentence word for word. Now fuck off. Reading comprehension skills my ass, as if you weren’t aware that they edited it. Who the fuck are you fooling? And if you are that dense that you would think I pulled brainwashed shit like that out of my ass, then you have no right trying to insult anyone. Fuck off’with ya.

  • lorna rosy

    Even with bodyguards, you can never be 100% safe. Lisa stone was a 90s small star on her way to becoming a big star when she was raped and killed by lee summers. Lee summers stated he loved her and that is why he raped and killed her. :/

  • MIT SCIENCE EXPLORATION LABS

    It’s far easier for the untrained to kill with knives and most mass killers from serial killers to spree killers to store and bank robbers to home invaders kill much, much more people with knives than they ever will with guns. It is called a magazine, not a clip. Guns take an awful lot more focused professional training to make work than knives. MOST murders are committed using blunt-force objects. You’ll find this is all correct and America will never, ever disarm, Stalin.

    Nobody is saying disarm everyone. That’s where you people on the far right go off the rails and intentionally frame the issue as all or nothing, when in reality the NRA is introducing laws to ease gun restrictions and kill CDC research. We can have responsible gun ownership, AND a much lower rate of gun homicides.
