New York’s DJ Megatron fatally shot – Where Transformers fans and rap lovers collide

Transformers Fans and Rap lovers were saddened today to learn of the untimely death of Corey “DJ Megatron” McGriff.

From CNN:

A popular television and radio DJ was shot to death in Staten Island early Sunday morning, according to New York City police.

Corey McGriff, known to fans as DJ Megatron, died of a gunshot wound to the torso shortly after 2 a.m. The incident is still under investigation and no arrests have been made, police said.

Unfortunately for both sides of the coin, we have lost someone with a commonality that combines two unlikely worlds.  This is most evident by the comments currently posted on the CNN article.

This shit was bound to happen

As expected, Transformers fans or at least those that seem knowledgeable enough to make a clever quip or two has descended upon the news story and have been ransacking.  The results are, of course upsetting those that feel a major loss for the late DJ Megatron.  While I do not condone the merry-making of this tragic loss, the comment thread is worth a look.

DJ Starscream from Slipknot now knows what to expect after his own passing.

Boing Boing has posted a rather humorous photo of Optimus Prime parked outside of Toy Fair 2011 with a NYC parking ticket attached to him!!!!

These are the kinds of fun-haters that you have to deal with in NYC.  I also wonder who has to pay this.
