Internet outrage over Anne Heche being compared to intensive care nurse Nicole Linton because she’s ‘black and not a celebrity’
The contradictory online reactions of Anne Heche and Nicole Linton have angered several Twitter users.
Los Angeles Californian Anne Heche, an Emmy Award-winning actress, and Nicole Lorraine Linton, a nurse from Texas, were both in two horrific car crashes last week. Some Twitter users are unhappy with how others reacted to news of the former’s death following the car crash.
Anne Heche, 53, died on Friday August 12 following a devastating car accident the previous week.
“We have lost a shining example, a loving mother, a devoted friend and a good and joyful soul. Heche’s publicist told Page Six, “Anne will be sorely missed, but she lives on through her beautiful sons, her iconic work and her fiery activism. “She will continue to make a lasting impact through her lifelong courage. speak the truth and share his message of love and acceptance.”
Heche was officially declared brain dead, but doctors raced her heart so that One Legacy could determine if she was suitable for organ donation, according to information provided at the outlet by Heche’s team. Friday. Heche fell unconscious on August 5 after crashing into a house in Los Angeles in her blue Mini Cooper. According to the actress’ publicist, she suffered “severe anoxic brain damage” and was “not expected to live” on August 11. Heche was still in critical condition and fell into a coma shortly after the accident.
After obtaining a warrant to test Heche’s blood, the Los Angeles Police Department could have proven that she was under the influence of cocaine at the time of the accident. The actress tested positive for fentanyl in her blood, according to law enforcement. However, they issued a warning that Heche may have been given fentanyl at the hospital to help manage his pain after the crash. The actress was not intoxicated, despite a photo taken just before the accident showing a red-capped bottle in the cup holder of her car, according to TMZ.
On August 10, after the woman Heche drove to claimed she had been injured and needed medical attention as a result, the LAPD expanded its investigation into the DUI crime. Witnesses said the actress entered the carport of a nearby apartment complex before reversing and fleeing. She hit another car, LAPD Western Traffic Division investigators said, before driving a bulldozer into the burning house. The ‘Men in Trees’ actor was seen being carried on a stretcher and suffering from serious back injuries in incident photos, while aerial photographs showed flames billowing from the house and numerous fire engines encircling it.
That same week, a multiple-car tragedy in Los Angeles was allegedly caused by a Texas nurse. Following the August 4 tragedy, Nicole Lorraine Linton was charged with six counts of murder and five counts of manslaughter while driving a vehicle. Linton allegedly ran a red light shortly after 1:30 p.m. while traveling up to 90 miles per hour, the prosecution alleges. She is accused of hitting at least six vehicles.
At the time of the accident, Asherey Ryan, 23, her boyfriend, Reynold Lester, 24, and her 11-month-old son, Alonzo, were all pregnant. The identities of the other two women who died in a different car have not been made public. Five other people were treated and released after being slightly injured. The six alleged murders were prompted by the deaths of four adults, an infant under the age of 11 and an unborn child. The five vehicular manslaughter charges against Ryan do not involve the death of his unborn child. Linton faces a life sentence if convicted on all counts, according to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón.
Linton did not appear to be impaired by drugs or alcohol, but investigators argue she should have been aware of the risks of reckless driving given her driving history. Prosecutors will have to demonstrate, in Gascón’s words, that Linton acted with “implied malice” and knew that excessive speed on city streets could harm lives. The Times reports that 13 previous crashes involving Linton were discovered by the California Highway Patrol. Authorities are still trying to piece together what happened. Her lawyer acknowledged that she had mental health issues. Police are also trying to determine if she had taken any prescription medication prior to the event.
Fans react to contrasting reactions to the two crashes
Everyone expressed their interest in the events and their opinions following the two accidents that made headlines last week. However, many Twitter users expressed their displeasure at the disparate online reactions the two received as soon as the actress’ death was reported. One individual on Twitter pointed to the inconsistency in expressions of sympathy for the actress following her passing and said, “It’s absolutely crazy how differently people have reacted to the car crashes caused by Nicole Clinton and Anne Heche. By the way, none of them deserve an ounce of sympathy, but the way you respond to these rich and well-known (and yt) people is so weird. Hech was lucky enough to avoid to hurt someone else, but she and Linton both deserve the same treatment, according to another Twitter user “Nicole Linton is better than Anne Heche. These two women were both driving recklessly and dangerously. Fortunately, Anne Heche avoided killing anyone. No fucking excuse exists for either. Throw the book at them both! Another poster slammed people for talking about their grief for Heche while criticizing Linton in a related incident “Many people are expressing their grief over the disappearance of Anne Heche while bashing Nicole Linton. In case you missed it, they were both driving erratically and at high speeds. One tragically took the lives of many innocent people, while the other took only his own.
It’s just insane how differently people reacted to the car crashes caused by Nicole Clinton and Anne Heche. By the way, none of them deserve a shred of sympathy, but the way you respond to these rich and well-known people (and yt) is so weird.

Another commenter noted that Linton had tested negative for all chemicals, unlike Heche, and remarked, “It’s interesting to observe how Nicole L. Linton’s accident and Anne Heche’s accident were received. One’s test results were generally decent. “Nicole Linton wasn’t drunk but she killed 6 people, Anne Heche was drunk but only hurt herself, idk there’s just something troubling me that I can’t describe until ‘now,’ read another tweet about the incident.
It is interesting to observe how the accident of Nicole L. Linton and that of Anne Heche were received. One’s test results were clean overall.

While Anne Heche was drunk but only injured herself, Nicole Linton was sober when she killed six people. I don’t know what’s bothering me, but I haven’t been able to put my finger on it yet.

Some people also believe that racial response differences are related to people’s occupations. The tweet read: “5 people were killed after Nicole Linton drove through an intersection drunk. Immediately detained, but she is black and not a famous person. Twitter users want to see it publicly performed. In response to Anne Heche? Oh poor thing, I feel awful for her (but not for the victim of her attempted murder). One Twitter user said Heche wouldn’t have experienced the same level of liking if she wasn’t a well-known person, saying, “How many people have such empathy for others who aren’t famous, c It’s something I often ponder. Do you have the same sympathy for nurse Nicole Linton, who killed three people in California last week? If Anne Heche were not known, she would be demonized by everyone. Another person remarked in response to the ‘anti-darkness’ replies, “The reaction on Twitter to Anne Heche against Nicole Linton is fascinating to watch. People try to kill Nicole, while those who don’t understand substance abuse issues and Anne’s mental health are reprimanded for their lack of sympathy.Anti-black prejudice exists.

I often wonder how many individuals have such empathy for others who are not famous. Do you have the same sympathy for nurse Nicole Linton, who killed three people in California last week? If Anne Heche were not known, she would be demonized by everyone. 💁🏾♀️

The reaction on Twitter to Anne Heche vs. Nicole Linton is fascinating to watch.
People try to kill Nicole, while those who don’t understand Anne’s addiction and mental health issues are chastised for their lack of sympathy.
