The particular type of sympathy that is felt when a celebrity or celebrity wanna be is in seemingly tragic circumstances while at the same time has large amounts of hype about them being generated in media coverage.
I would like to feel sympathetic towards all who claim to have been Tiger Woods' lover, but I feel more hypathetic because of how popular the media has made them.

Couchgoer 2: I don't know man, I'm feelin more hypathetic. Just look at all of the coverage they get.
