Harry Styles Attends Funeral For Matt Irwin, Celebrity Photographer
Irwin died last week at the age of 36, but the cause of death has yet to be disclosed. The British photographer has taken pictures of such celebrities as Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, Reese Witherspoon, Nicki Minaj, Kesha and Lady Gaga, but he became particularly friendly with the members of One Direction. Following Irwin’s death, fans of the boy band tweeted so many condolences that #RIPMattIrwin became a trending topic.
On Tuesday, #RIPMattIrwin began trending once again after his sister, Carys Bray, posted a photo of Styles at the funeral. The image features the first clear look at Style’s new short haircut, resulting in many fans commenting about the singer’s hair and retweeting the photo. But many other fans felt it was inappropriate that Styles’ new hairdo was overshadowing Irwin’s memorial service, and believed his locks shouldn’t be the main focus, considering the circumstances in which the picture was taken. Irwin’s sister later took down the photo and made her account private. Gossip Cop will not be reposting the image out of respect for the family’s privacy.
