I’m making this post because I see so many people blindly idolizing Jack Kilmer and he hasn’t done anything to deserve the amount of respect or fans that he has. Jack Kilmer took a picture “reenacting” basically mocking the death of River Phoenix. If you don’t know who River is he was an AMAZING actor, musician, and environmental/ animal rights activist. He also looks a bit like Jack Kilmer so people are always comparing them. On October 31st, 1993, River overdosed and died having seizures outside the viper room in West Hollywood. In the picture you can see Jack Kilmer laying on the ground playing dead outside the viper room. That’s not a coincidence. Jack Kilmer is seriously trash and beyond disrespectful. That was a really shitty thing to do and it wasn’t even remotely funny. I can’t believe someone who works in the same industry that admires River so much can do a shitty thing like this and people can still respect him. This picture is also his Instagram icon for crying out loud!!!! The next time you want to compare River Phoenix to Jack Kilmer and say they look so much alike or “Jack is the modern day River Phoenix” PLEASE DON’T. He doesn’t deserve to be compared to River and he obviously doesn’t even respect him.
