That is shitty, shitty newsfilter rubber-necking of the worst kind. I would love it if we could simply delete bad obits like this. If the post had been about anything other than someone's death, surely it wouldn't have stayed up?
I understand that there may have been a dearth of good links about a second-line Jackass star, but surely then the correct course of action is not to post at all, rather than post rubbish like this? At very least they could have put a few of his videos or something in there. It looks like voyeuristic tutting as-is. Was poster even a fan? (not a fan myself, but surely, obits on mefi are really as a form of tribute)
