People are furious after The Mail’s headline about Terry Wogan and David Bowie

There’s one overriding feeling.

After the incredibly sad news of Terry Wogan’s passing was announced on Sunday, there have been some fitting tributes paid to the gifted broadcaster from the likes of Gay Byrne, Chris O’Dowd and many, many more.

Thousands of people have been quick to show their love, appreciation and respect for Wogan following the news of his death as the world has seen another great pass away, an incredibly sad feeling that’s becoming too familiar in 2016.

David Bowie is still very much in the minds of music fans also and The Daily Mail really should have paid closer attention to this headline that’s spread across the front page of today’s paper.

The overriding consensus is that they’ve somehow turned these sad deaths into an extremely morbid and poorly judged competition for ratings and popularity.

Here’s the headline along with some of the online comments.
