Who Can I Fleece Now? Leave David Bowie alone. 

I’m getting a little sick of people cashing in on David Bowie. There have been a few inventive and credible theatrical events but the most irritating thing has been the over-saturation of the market with products demanding to be purchased. Much of it is complete toot and most of it is not how Bowie himself would wish to be remembered. I don’t want a colour changing mug or a badly-printed, poor-quality canvas. Am I the only one who thinks that cashing in on the life, career and legacy of Bowie is immoral and perhaps verging on illegal? I was stupid enough to be drawn in to make a purchase which has, after many months, failed to arrive and begin to wonder if this is how my card details were obtained and a fraud was committed on my account. But that’s besides the point. Don’t profit from the death of a man who gave us so much whilst alive…Oh, and don’t even get me started on Kanye West.
