We can confirm that Joel Taylor has passed away while on a cruise. The cause of the death has not yet been determined. We ask for your understanding during this difficult time and your respect for the family while they deal with the loss of their son. 

There is speculation that Taylor overdosed although no confirmation on the cause of his death. According to TMZ, Taylor was seen consuming a large amount of drugs and he passed out on the dance floor on Tuesday evening. He was removed from the dance floor and taken back to his room.

I believe adults should be free to use any and all drugs that they wish. I also believe that they do so at their own peril. If they die in doing so, they paid the price for their risky behaviour.

While I erred in not extending sympathy to the deceased's friends and family, I feel nothing for the deceased himself.

I know that is harsh, but that is reality.

"aboard the a gay Royal Caribbean cruise ship Harmony of the Seas as it was docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico."

What sloppy writing. How can a cruise ship be gay? Does it only "dock" at piers of the same sex? It was a gay cruise on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship...

My sympathy = zero.

Lie down with dogs, get up (or in this case, just stay lying down) with fleas.
