Google, enough with the ‘birthdays’ of dead people!
Google changes its landing page often, in order to celebrate special events such as Christmas, New Years but also, the passing of XXX years since the birth of famous people.
However, we’ve had it with the ‘birthday’ part, Google!
A birthday celebration ends with the death of a person, one does not celebrate their 54th birthday when they died in 1990 for Christ’s sake!
Dead people don’t age any more.
Today’s Google page is dedicated to Keith Haring – without a doubt, a great artist of the pop art movement – but Haring’s last birthday was his 31st.
Celebrating a dead person’s birthday is also insulting to their friends and family who want to preserve their memory “frozen” in time.
Overall, a very tacky move by Google.
