Carl Cox dj set goes badly wrong

Carl Cox's Caracas set on Sunday night came to a quick, bloody end when a gunman opened fire, killing four and injuring a further nine.

Cox has issued a statement:

"I am deeply shocked and still stunned by the events of this Saturday. My condolences go out to victims that were caught up in this horrific act. I am informed that it was gang-related, and feel so sad that anybody would act in such a manner when the event was full of 7000 people having fun."

Is it just us, or does the size of the audience being included make it sound less like a sympathy statement than a bit of a brag about Cox's popularity in Venezuela? After all, it's surely as terrible if a gunman opens fire in a room full of ten people as 10,000?

It's just you. Gotta let the sarcasm bleed out, however petty the excuse, eh?

No, you're wrong. Sarcasm would have been along the lines of "7000 people, perhaps; enjoying themselves, debatable". What that was was cynicism.

So, anonymous - exactly why would you mention the number of fee-paying punters to express sympathy for the deceased?
