He suffered a cardiac arrest and sustained a head injury, and was taken to the Royal Liverpool Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

    Wow that’s the most pathetic thing I have ever read. They wouldn’t have even said it like that because they’re selfish douches rolling in their money. And thoughts a prayers really? Yeah a thought is going to help heal the pain and prayers don’t do anything. They don’t care about some dude who was setting up their stage.

    So what do you expect them to do ? kill themselves or what , this was going to happen during a 1D gig or any other gig , when Miley’s tour bus’s driver died she did the same , they can’t do anything except praying for him and his family and this is what we all should do instead of hating on people we will never know .

    Because you know them so well! I mean seriously how the hell do you know that they don’t care? They seem to care about a lot of people that do stuff for them! You really think they don’t care? Shows how little you actually know about these guys. They are pretty amazing people for celebs in all honesty. They do charity work without there publicist or anyone knowing, its just them being nice. So maybe you should grow up and stop posting on articles about them if you don’t like them.
