Mike Shinoda writes to Linkin Park fans

Mike Shinoda writes to Linkin Park fans
A week after the suicide of Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, the other famous face from the band has written a letter to the fans. He thanks them for their support, and for respecting privacy, and directs them to help if they need it. There’s also a bit about merch, but this isn’t the time for cynicism.
“One week. Feels like forever. I’m here for a couple updates. I know these links aren’t clickable. Just type them out in your browser; they're easy to remember. 1.) If you need a (local) place to celebrate Chester, look to tiny.cc/lpmemorial and all the amazing fan sites I’ve previously mentioned. 2.) If you’re having suicidal thoughts, go to chester.linkinpark.com 3.) If you’re going to buy merch in honor of Chester, consider who the purchase benefits. Don’t give money to scumbag bootleggers and opportunists. Linkin Park official merchandise is at store.linkinpark.com 4.) If you want to donate in honor of Chester, do it at musicforrelief.org 5.) Brad, Joe, Rob, Dave, and I love you all very much. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this extremely difficult time.”
It’s unclear how true reports of fans copycat killing themselves are at this point, but if you are in a bad way follow Mike’s link to find hotline numbers.
