You have to be some kind of stupid to think that's not a memorial for Rypien.


you have to be some kind of desparate to think that it is.........take a look at the pic Avelanch posted.........it's pretty much completely faded..........it was a couple of kids writing something about Rypien on a pillar a year ago. The statue of RN is a memorial.......this is not. There is nothing disrespectful beyond the defacing of public property, which applies to those who wrote about Rypien as well.

I urge you to contact the Canucks and try and get an official memorial for RR if you feel that strongly about him. I'm sure his fans, friends and family woulf appreciate greatly

Source?

And for the people saying how they don't get how it's disrespectful? Like really? It's a public memorial. Yeah it's not official, yeah all of the Rypien messages are themselves Graffiti but seriously? You don't get the concept of sentimental value? Like if someone went and defaced the wall that everyone wrote on apologizing after the riots, would you be ok with that?


no, it's not

It has now been posted by 99.3 and The Province on facebook. WOW, are some of the comments just brutal. The tweets I saw on The Province article are just disgusting! Wishing her to hang herself so this kid could deface her grave, looking at his twitter page though, you can see he is a real loser. But likely one who would punch her in the face if he saw her, or worse.

Once again "Canuck fans" have taken this to a whole new level. Congratulations! :picard:


Once again the actions of a few canuck fans do not equal the entire fan base so you can stop along with everyone else that just loves to point at the few canuck fans that do idiotic things like this and group us all together

Im sure the girl didn't realize what or where she was writing. After hearing news of a girl taking her life today becuase of being bullied, don't think people need to rant on this girl or threaten her over the internet. Life is too short to get angry over small things.

I can't believe people are still mad at her about this, there were alot of other Justin Bieber writings on there from others, she was just the only one who was "foolish" enough to write her name.

and to be perfectly honest, as much as I miss and love RYP. there really isn't anything left of the memorial anymore, if it still looked like it did in 2011 then I can understand this a little more but it is going too far overboard.

Love the sensationalist headline.

It was just one fan of JB.

Not worthy of JB bashing.  I don't even listen to JB, but this mindless bashing of an artist is retarded. Blame the music industry.


When I first posted this topic, what I had heard was Justin Bieber FANS had vandalized the memorial. If you look at my profile, you'll notice I live on Vancouver Island. I have not seen the writing in real life, only pictures. I was told the news by a relative, who called me from the concert, which they also went to. I have nothing against Justin Bieber, or his fans (though some of them are very dumb, like this girl.)

As for the girl herself, people need to calm down. She's like 16. Even if we weren't that dumb at that age (or won't be, as many people on the board are younger) she's still just a kid. It was a dumb move. No doubt about it. But death threats are not the solution. I wish I could grab her by her hair and make her scrub the writing off, but that could even be considered assualt. If she cleans it and apologizes, I've got no problem.

EDIT: Also, is there a way to change the title? Or do I have to leave it as it is?

A faded concrete pillar was not Rick Rypiens legacy however his foundation against mental depression is. Can anyone explain how this cyber bullying contributes to Rypien's Legacy? Words are dangerous

Another reason to hate on Bieber, his fans disgusts me.


Ridiculous statement. Bieber has nothing to do with. It's like fans rioting because their team lost, it isn't the teams fault and it isn't Bieber's fault.

That's fine, but others do take it personally, and it doesn't make it right. People can tend to be a lot more vicious on the internet. We can just hope thats where it stops in this case. It's almost a guarantee she didn't do it maliciously, but most of the threats were. Let's just hope she doesn't end up another Amanda Todd.

I don't think she meant any insult or disrespect. She's just a kid. Sometimes kids do stupid things. Besides, you better believe she regrets it now.

Pretty sad all around.

I mean c'mon. I hate "the Biebs" like most people who aren't teenage girls do, but this is stupid. It was a nice touch to write on a Skytrain Pillar thoughts and memories of Rick Rypien, but surely people didn't think it would be permanant? Over time the writing will fade, some random kid could spray it, it wasn't something that was going to last in the long run.

If it was a proper memorial or statue it would be a little more concerning. It was a case of a bunch of girls who probably have no clue or interest about hockey deciding to add to the one pillar that had writing on it already.

What she did was bad, but bullying her into depression is probably the last thing Rick Rypien would've wanted.

Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

Plain and simple she should have apologized and volunteered to fix her mistake. She hasn't to this point and has done nothing but hide from the problem. You don't run from your mistakes, you sack the frack up and face it head on. Hopefully people will let it be and she will come to realize that she should rectify her mistake, as well as any others that did as she did.

Stawns, it doesn't matter what you believe about the validity of the pillar as a memorial to the late Rypien to be. All that matters is that I significant amount of people have been offended by her and other "Belieber's" actions. Of course the death threats, wishing her to die, etc. is too far past the line, but I don't exactly see a crapload of people here condoning that crap - anyone who does is just as immature as she is. This isn't that difficult a situation for her to diffuse if she just grew the frack up and took responsibility for her actions, no matter how inconsequential you believe them to be.
