The death of Halyna Hutchins

Halyna Hutchin's manner of death is noted in the Trivia section of her IMDb profile. I could see noting it in her biography, but categorizing it as trivia seems a grotesque editorial mistake.

Hi JMM -

As the information is factual, we will allow the circumstances of death to be listed under the Trivia section on the Bio page.

Currently, there is only an auto-generated Bio on Ms. Hutchins' IMDb page (this auto-generated Bio cannot be edited), if you wish to add to/replace the information within the Mini-Bio, you are welcome to submit a new Bio to the page including the circumstances of death.

Let us know if you have further questions!

Hi, Michelle.

The point is not whether the information is factual, but whether it is trivia. 

Here are dictionary definitions of trivia I found giving the primary meaning of the word trivia:

Merriam Webster: unimportant matters
Oxford Learner's Dictionary: unimportant matters, details or information
Cambridge Dictionary: details or information that are not important

I don't agree that her death should be viewed as such. I am sorry IMDb does.

Thank you.
