The death of Little Jake on General Hospital is making its way into the pop culture zeitgeist. The New York Post ran a full-fledged article about the reaction from outraged GH fans online. Here's a couple of the quotes they pulled from message boards:
"Hey! Isn't ABC a Disney Network? Aren't they supposed to be about 'family?' " wrote carolegenni. "Great job killing off kids and destroying families on General Hospital!"
"I am very disappointed that the Disney Corporation has financed a soap opera . . . which portrays children who are victims of violence," write ays786.
Okay...must be a slow news week? I bet ABC Daytime is loving all this free publicity; too bad it had to come at the expense of royally hacking off so many loyal fans. Good, bad or ugly the story arc has people talking. I just wonder if it will all be worth it in the long run?
