To the Digital Death Celebrities: Stay Dead

Pretention never dies.

Follow Up of the Day: Looks like Kim Kardashian and her Digital Death compatriots aren’t doing so well. With less than an hour to go on the East Coast before World AIDS Day becomes International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, the shameful ploy to demand cash from fans in exchange for fatuous tweets appears to have bombed in a rather spectacular fashion.

The most notable thing to emerge from this experiment is how, in the span of 24 hours, with millions upon millions of followers among them, these celebs were only able to collect about as much money as one of them makes in a minute.

Hey famous people, here’s an idea: Instead of using your limelight to shuck cash off common Internet folk, maybe you pull out your gilded checkbooks and donate the million dollars out of those fortunes happenstance so graciously awarded you.

Oh, and don’t you dare come back online before that insensitive coffin fills up. You owe those poor kids that much.
