WHEN NOT TO USE TWITTER

January 6th, 2010 · No Comments · Social Commentary

Like, when your friend or lover, fiance – whatever – someone you care about DIES????

What are you doing on Twitter??? Saw this recently with a couple of celebrity deaths but this is the worst/dumbest/self-serving one of all.

ugh

VIPERS Tweet about death

“In bed crying, looking at baby pictures of Casey, Nicky and I. I feel so upset. I feel like I’ve lost a sister. My heart is broken. Miss her,” Paris Hilton posted to Twitter.

Nicky Hilton concurred, posting, “Rest in pace Casey Johnson. I love and miss you so much. You are my best friend, my sister…I am broken without you.”

Uhhh… yeah….

Johnson is survived by her daughter Ava-Monroe. She adopted the girl from Kazakhstan in 2007. Ava has been living with Casey’s mother, Sale, for the past several months, according to a family spokesman.

The year before adopting Ava, Johnson told an interviewer she had recently come back from a trip to poverty-stricken Cambodia with a new outlook on life.

She allowed the reporter, from Vanity Fair, to visit her two-story Spanish-style mansion in Los Angeles. That included a room-sized closet with dozens of pairs of designer shoes, but she admitted that amid all the luxury she felt like she had so much more than she would ever need. Still, she said, growing up rich “has its good side.”

More recently, after ending a tumultuous relationship with a boyfriend, Johnson began dating women and was recently romantically linked to the flamboyant bisexual reality TV star Tila Tequila.

Tequila’s publicist said the two were engaged. On her Twitter page, Tequila wrote late Monday, “Everyone please pray 4 my Wifey Casey Johnson. She has passed away. Thank u for all ur love and support but I will be offline to be w family.”
