Celebrities try to blackmail us into donating money

Here’s another bizarre publicity stunt set to draw attention to a good cause – Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, and Justin Timberlake are going to cease all Twitter and Facebook activity starting Wednesday, as a “digital death” gimmick to promote World AIDS Day.

The plan is that they will not return to their online lives until a million dollars has been raised for Keep a Child Alive.  The campaign features images of the stars posing as dead people in coffins, in a cheesy attempt to lend a visual element to the digital death theme.  I might be more inclined to donate if they promised to stop doing these cheap stunts, or if donating would keep them off the internet for longer intervals.

  1. That’s cool but also scary. Aren’t they get frighten being put inside a coffin? Horrible.
