Colloquial hyperbole involving death, destruction ("slayed, killed, destroyed, murdered) or irreversible cessation that doesn't involve actual irreversible cessation is now trite...

But because it is exactly that: trite.
And particularly so in headlines in text media.
(some of which its purveyors actually contend is journalism)
