Grief-shaming is the latest social media trend, after Facebook made it easy for users to change their profile pics to be tricoloured in sympathy with the 140 murdered victims of the Islamic State’s terrorist attacks in Paris.
I’ve lost a drawing of a dog I did for a painting, so I’ve been flicking through sketchbooks where I found this picture from the LAST horrific school shooting by an anonymous gun owning American.
