KOOL Question of the Day

 

**Voting is Completely Anonymous**

A tweet from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences about Robin Wiliams' death has proven popular, but not with one suicide-prevention group.  The tweet shows the genie from the 1992 “Aladdin” with the message, “Genie, you’re free,” which is a line from the film. The item was retweeted more than 320,000 times and received a staggering 69 million impressions.

However, officials with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention worry about the subliminal message, telling the Washington Post “Suicide should never be presented as an option,” before adding, “(it) presents suicide in too celebratory a light.”


The "KOOL Question of the Day" is:

 "Do you think the tweet sends the wrong message about suicide?"

    Yes

    No
