Sad, But I can't take this Seriously.....

Wacka Flocka Flame Shot: Refused to Give Up His Chain
-About an hour ago, Atlanta gossip sites and Twitter were amass relaying the rumor (now fact) that So Icy Entertainment's artist, Wacka Flocka Flame, was shot at a gas station on Ol' National Highway this afternoon. Allegedly after Wacka refused the gunmen, they fired two shots and he is now recovering in the hospital and everyone is praying for his family.
Now. Please excuse my cynicism, but aren't we in the midst of (arguably-due to natural disaster) the worst global devastation EVER?!?! I'm referencing the mass graves in continuous construction, and unimaginable death toll over in Haiti.... I found it rather unsettling that the Twitterverse (in particular) was up-in-arms over a shooting that may have been avoided had "Wacka" simply given up his chain, a material investment that has no value in the grand scheme of... LIFE. Again, prayers for his family, but let's put it into perspective. Wacka raps/ sings about a "hard" lifestyle, filled with drugs and no less, robberies. Maybe he'll reconsider what he puts out into the universe next time (doubtful), maybe he'll recover and donate the daum chain to Haiti relief efforts (I'll hold my breath). I'm guessing little will change post his medical release, and he'll continue to "DOOOOOO IIIIIIIITTTTT. YEEEEEEAAAA" (but no).
That's all for now kids!!!!!!!
