This irritates the fuck out of me as well:
Elmer Grandin, an actor who died in 1933 after a career on Broadway and in silent movies, appeared at a Thanksgiving weekend party in Patchogue, N.Y., wearing a Darth Vader mask and glasses, thanks to three Long Island teens who had cracked open his family crypt and dressed him up along with the skulls of two of his relatives. Police described the three teenagers as "Goths." We already figured that out.
Yes, no point in just calling the kids generic fuckwits when you can slur an entire subculture, eh...
