Ike Turner Obit Headline Winners

Who had the most tasteless headline for their Ike Turner obit?

The LAT doesn’t let the dead get off easy, with it’s headline: Rock Pioneer was known for abusing wife, Tina Turner. But still, that’s pretty straightforward and tame.

The NYT, apparently, didn’t want to speak ill of the dead: Ike Turner, Musician and Songwriter in Duo With Tina Turner, Dies at 76

The Melbourne Herald-Sun has a good one: Rock’s villain Ike Turner departs in shadow of infamy.

But the winner has to be the New York Post with: Ike “Beats” Tina to Death.

Congratulations, Post. Your award will be presented to you at a special ceremony. In hell.
