One of the stars of Glee has faced tragedy recently. Singer/Actress Charice Pempengco’s father was stabbed to death with an ice pick on Thursday. The story hit the news quickly after the incident, becoming a national news story, and a trending topic on many social media websites. Yes, it is a tragic and sad event that should never have happened, but is it worldwide newsworthy? Seems like this wouldn’t be a main story in the world had it not been for his estranged daughter being a singer/actress on a hit tv show known around the world.
