As Bobbi Kristina remains in a hospital kept alive by a machine fans have openly shared their opinions on the 21-year-old’s condition and how she got here. Many have long said the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown has been on a downward spiral since the passing of her mother. Not only has Bobbi Kris made her issues public via social media platforms such as Twitter, the media has also taken every opportunity to cover her every move.
By now, many people are aware that Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive on Saturday face-down in a bathtub. She was rushed to the North Fulton Hospital where she was placed in a medically induced coma and later taken to Emory University Hospital. Reports state that doctors have done all they can do for this young woman and have left the charge to her family as to how long they want to keep her lifeless body breathing on a ventilator.
As she lays in this bleak condition, her family is holding on to hope that she will soon awaken. Many of the fans of Bobbi Kris, mostly because they loved her mother, are praying for a full recovery while others are wondering if the family should just let her go. One Comedian named Funky Dineva posed a question about Bobbi Kris’s state which upset some but made sense to many. This comedian is well-known as a Social Media Mastermind, celebrity host, lecturer, and performer. The question he posed in his blog is, “Is it best if she just goes on to glory?”
Funky Dineva did not just leave the question without interpretation. He explained his difficult question by saying:
I realize on the surface, it appears as if I am asking should she just die? However, if you dig a little deeper, you will find that my question genuinely comes from a place of compassion and love.
The comedian went on to express that he, like so many others, is praying for Bobbi Kris but cannot overlook the fact that she has been a tortured soul from the moment she was born. He said it is as if the poor girl did not ever have a real chance at life. Bobbi Kristina came out of the womb and entered the war zone of her two drug addicted parents.
After her mother’s untimely death the child, whether by choice or force, had no real support system. Bobbi Kristina had no real identity and no true sense of purpose. Due to her upbringing she was desensitized to the perils of alcohol and drugs and had integrated them into her life; just as she had witnessed with her parents.
Funky Dineva said it is no secret that she has experienced confusion and pain beyond measure without the proper coping mechanisms. He ended his statement by saying although his question may sound insensitive, it is quite the contrary. He is praying just as hard as the next person but not necessarily the same prayer. The social media mastermind said his prayer is simply that “…God’s will be done and Bobbi Kristina finds peace.”
Needless to say the fans have mixed feelings about Funky Dineva’s thinking. Many people said he is wrong for saying that because God can do anything. There are many people who were in that same vegetative state that have been healed and lived to tell their story. Others agreed with the comedian’s explanation and said those who opposed must have stopped at the question without going on to read his reasons.
Media reports seem to confirm that Bobbi Kris was depressed right before this unfortunate incident. She and her significant other, Nick Gordon, had gotten into a fight and he allegedly moved out of the home they shared together. This all took place as the anniversary of her mother’s death was forthcoming and it was more than the troubled woman could handle.
The news of her condition has been especially devastating to her father, but the entire family is grieving. Family members have been visiting Bobbi Kristina’s bedside to say their goodbyes. Reportedly, even with this bleak prognosis, the family has not given up hope. The doctor’s message to the family is sinking in that this could be the end, but they are still praying that God will intervene on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown.
