Because it makes them think of something sad and depressing. It
reminds them of tragedies in their own lives and forces them to
relive them.

Instead of logging on and having fun, they are faced with a very
depressing thing.

It is selfish to put one's own need to show how "caring" and
"empathetic" they are above the needs of the players to have an
environment to login and enjoy.
