If she is correct then this is an important post and I doubt she would have written it if it were not true... Maybe Osmond will take heed.. how sad for that child if this is the case.. in the Eighties I saw devout Roman Catholic men dying of AIDS in the midst of desperation because their religion had already damned them to hell. All religions are intrinsicaly dangerous but the extreme tiers of the top 3 are the worst- Christian, Islam and Judaism alike.

@why is it wrong: "I do think it was done in poor taste because of how soon after the death... but other than that, I don't see what's so wrong with the post..."

Other than that?!? That's something rather huge to gloss over. Even if you believe the Osmonds could have prevented their son's death - which is pure, utter, unfair speculation - to publicly call them out for that days after their child dies is absolutely galling. What is gained by it??

Bravo to Roseanne for championing a cause better than his own mother.

Roseanne is NOT the official spokesperson for the Osmond family!!

Let's face it, if the Osmonds continue their devotion to the Mormon Church they are funding the death of many many gay men and women and should be shunned, avoided and kept off television. How could she possibly allow the church to work so hard against her own son and NOT turn away from it???

The Osmonds disgust me. Julianne Hough and her brother are also strong Mormons - were you aware of that? Lovely people to look at but gay people and their supporters refuse to support the Osmonds and the Houghs. Wouldn't you if they were helping to destroy your family?

The Bilson/Osmond family have to be at a great loss during this time. I do not think that a mother know how to grieve when it comes to losing a child.Michael was still very young,and whatever
way he died, he is now gone,but will forever remain in the hearts of those who truly loved and cared about him.THG gives me and my co-writers the opportunity to express our opinions on numerous topics,and as co-writers we may not always agree,but I have enough
faith in my own ability to think.This is Not the time for an outsider such as Roseanne to disperse such uncalled for information.You can not play it both ways, either you feel the loss that the family is enduring or you choose to be judgemental at the worst possible time.Everyone grieves differently in their own way,on their own terms,and if The Bilson/Osmond Family choose
to grieve in a quiet dignified manner,that is what we should respect.Again,I wish peace and comfort to the family during this very difficult time.

Actually the first thought I had was the kid was gay, couldn't deal with it, along with the lack of support and unacceptance from the family (hence the depression) and chose to end it.

Honestly, if he was gay, what was so wrong about the post? It could have been a preventable death if the family was a little bit more accepting.

I do think it was done in poor taste because of how soon after the death... but other than that, I don't see what's so wrong with the post. I am sure that the Osmond family is going through so much pain right now... but, if what Barr is saying is true, then they also have a lot of reflection to do in their own lives, knowing that they could have stopped his death from occurring if they were a bit more accepting.

I like Roseanne Barr. Yet, I don't think it was in good taste, and I don't think she should comment about things she doesn't have complete proof of. And probably not when a wound is so fresh. Ouch.
