There are thousands and thousand of posts, phone calls and whatnot going up everywhere over this Paris Hilton release.
Forget about Paris for a second, observe the cultural phenomenon of a commonly incensed group of people. There is going to be rioting and/or some sort of hell to pay over this decision. People are mad as hell. I mean, the BBC is reporting they’ve taken like a thousand negative calls on this. The BBC for fuck’s sake!
The LA Times (already!) has 232 web pages of comments, right here. Almost all of them outraged and angry.by
we aint had us a good ri-ot hur in los angles fer a good while.
y’think all them rich white folk gonna come fuck wit us in toonerville or frogtown? better stock me up on somdat microbrew and somdat fo’five ammo… s’gonna be a looooong night.
how about some Paris Hilton porn in celebration of the fact that 93.96% of people in a BBC pole say, “lock her up!”
so if I have this correct..
some ego-centric self promoter (and demoter) is let off too lightly = culteral outrage, whereas the “leader” of the country can fuck shit up to the tune of governments toppled, international government relations forfeited, civil liberties trampled, thousands dead and it gets a few op-eds and sound bites while a nations worth of tv remotes switch in unison to catch the game scores.
so…who the fuck is Paris Hilton again??
..and why do we care??
