Blogger Who Wrote 'Reasons I'm Glad Paul Walker is Dead', On Suicide Watch
Why on earth would anyone write 'Top 5 reasons i'm glad Paul Walker is dead?'
A blogger who penned an article titled 5 Reasons I'm Glad Paul Walker is Dead is apparently on suicide watch after receiving death threats and threatening messages online. On Tuesday (December 3, 2013), a writer going by the name of Adora Bull wrote the piece on the website Modern Women Digest.

Just days after Walker and his friend had been killed in a horrific car crash in Los Angeles, Bull wrote, "This year, Christmas has arrived early as B list celebrity actor Paul Walker was reported dead on December 1st, the victim of a high speed car crash north of Los Angeles. This has left many people devastated, a large majority of them being tasteless Fast & Furious fans. While I could sit here and bore you with more details surrounding his death, I'd rather move on from that and present a list of reasons as to why this is a blessing in disguise for the world as a whole."
She proceeded to list the reasons that she was glad at Walker's death, including the fact that there would be no more Fast & Furious movies (not strictly true). She also suggested that there hadn't been a "good" celebrity death since Cory Monteith and that "his death has been a good distraction from the soldiers who died this week."
Her fourth and fifth points were that "Vin Diesel will finally be forced to expand his career" and that Paul Walker's death "proves that rich douchebags die young too."
Strangely, the website added a disclaimer to the bottom of Ms Bull's piece, that read, "Adora Bull's views do not reflect those of the fine editorial staff at Modern Woman Digest. While we may not necessarily agree with Adora Bull's stance on certain subjects we do feel she has the right to express her opinions. Modern Woman Digest sends Paul Walker's family, friends and fans all the best during these troubling times."

The post received 5,000 Facebook likes, however, Bull - who describes herself as an "alternative model and national spokeswoman for Goths For Christ" - received a flurry of negative comments.
It appears as though the outcry was too much for Bull who "has been taken into police protection and moved to a secure location pending the official investigation multiple death threats aimed at the author," according to an article on Modern Women Digest.
"Police currently have her under suicide watch, as Ms. Bull has been witnessed threatening her own life after the recent influx of hate mail surrounding her and her journalism career," wrote staffer Jane Agni, "We at MWD Headquarters are still unsure as to where they have taken Ms. Bull, but have been assured by the local police Chief that she is in good hands and in a safe location.
"There has been no recent news as to how Ms. Bull is holding up, but our thoughts and prayers are with her during this trying time, and wish her all the best in luck. You will always have a home here at Modern Women Digest when it is safe for you to return back to your job. Your fans are counting on you to pull through this. God Bless you, Ms. Bull."
Paul Walker - star of the Fast and Furious movies - died on Saturday when his friend Roger Rogas's Poirsche Carrera GT smashed into a tree and burst into flames. A huge charity man, the actor has been receiving tributes from across the globe. Paul Walker's daughter posted a heart-breaking message on Facebook.
