Default Has Jon lost the Elvis fan vote?

Too bad Elvis didn't take his own advice about dealing with adversity. And legend has it that when a high-level Hollywood entertainment executive was informed of Elvis' death, he responded:

I donít think whoever responded gets what he meant by ďfat Elvis.Ē At the end of his life, Elvis was manipulated into touring when he was not well. He was influenced by people who took advantage of him by making him think he could take uppers to do his job and downers to sleep. Elvis was a people pleaser and it wound up killing him. He was not happy or anywhere near healthy when he died. His health, family, and career all ended in a depressing mess, even as the King of Rock n Roll. Jon is taking lessons on what not to do by seeing how one of his idols died.

Is it worth vilifying Jon now for something he's said for probably a few decades?

Apparently, the stan feels that Jon vilified Elvis simply by suggesting that he ended up fat and unhappy. Learning from (and teaching about) the mistakes of others -- especially those who you look up to -- is the opposite of "insulting" them. P.S. The use of the word "stan" was not a typo.
