A grief hipster is someone who, upon the death of a celebrity/well known public figure, will profess "Well, I don't give a shit they died. And you know what? This obscure other person died and nobody but me cared!" to show that not only are you being a sheep for being upset a public figure died but that they found someone more obscure to mourn than you.
Grief Hipster: "You're upset Witney Houston died? Well did you know about {insert totally obscure soldier who died in the Iraq War's name}? He died the same day and you don't see millions of people upset about it! I'm better at grieving than you are because I knew he died and you didn't!"
