A famous person’s death is sad, we’re not debating that. Someone dying of a drug overdose at 38 is sad. Someone dying at 38 is sad. So no need to be hyperbolic. Corey Haim was an actor and maybe a teen star, but there’s no way he was an “icon.” Nope. Michael Jackson was an icon. Elvis was an icon. Icons get put on postage stamps. Corey Haim was an actor.
