In the few days since Sylvester Stallone’s son Sage Moonblood tragically died at thirty-six, there have been thousands of articles written speculating about what may have killed him. Initial reports claimed a pill bottle was found near the deceased’s body, and that’s led many to assume his death was an overdose. The coroner has decided not to issue an official cause of death until the toxicology reports come back; so, for the next six weeks, it’s likely the theories and shocking stories about Sage’s personal life will continue.

In response, Sly, calling Sage’s loss “agonizing”, reached out to TMZ and asked all the speculation be stopped immediately. The actor wants the family to be able to mourn in peace, and obviously, all the troubling commentaries about Sage’s behavior haven’t made that task easy on anyone.

When a celebrity dies due to mysterious circumstances, it’s a given the public will pour into the deceased’s personal life looking for answers. I’m not saying it’s right, but it’s happened for centuries and will continue to happen. What makes Sage’s case unusual, however, is that he wasn’t really a celebrity in his own right. He appeared in Rocky V as a child, but if his father wasn’t Sly, the media wouldn’t be writing endless stories about what may or may not have been in his medicine cabinet.

I get where Stallone is coming from, but I’m still not sure it’s exactly fair to ask the media to stop wondering why his son died. What do you think? Should we all stop sticking our noses in the family’s business? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
