Jade Goody Facebook Troll Jailed For Mocking Mourn Porn With Necrophilia Gags

by | 29th, October 2010

COLM Coss, 36, is the Facebook Legend who posted offensive messages on Facebook sites dedicated to dead people like Jade Goody and John Paul Massey, a Liverpool boy mauled to death by a dog. Some posts claimed he’d had sex with the dead person’s remains. Her didn’t. His lies got him an invite to Manchester Magistrates Court. After short hearing he is sentenced to 8 weeks jail for sending “malicious communications”.

He “preyed on bereaved families” for his “own pleasure“.

The BBC tells us:

Unemployed Coss was only caught when he sent residents on his street photos of himself saying he was an internet “troll”. One of the residents passed the photos to police who interviewed him before he eventually admitted to posting abusive messages.

At an earlier hearing, Matthew Siddall, prosecuting, said:

“The defendant told police that he finds the comments amusing. He said it causes reaction.”

He’s right. People do react to such adolescent stupidity. And awful as it is – and horribly unfunny, natch. – isn’t a Facebook tribute site a mawkish public display of emotion that invites people who never knew the deceased to wallow in grief. It’s just mourn porn, isn’t it?
