M.I.A. Tweets New York Times Reporter’s Number

When a journalist does a profile piece about a subject, sometimes they end up looking good and other times, well, not so much. Apparently, M.I.A. thinks all reporters have to be nice to her. She proved today that if she isn’t pleased with the story, she’ll retaliate in a ridiculously childish way. Upset by a New York Times Magazine cover story by Lynn Hirschberg, M.I.A. Tweeted the reporter’s phone number. Her Tweet made it look like the number was hers and said, “Call me if you wanna talk to me about the NYT Truth issue…” Hirschberg handled the situation much better than the obnoxious rapper, whose video for “Born Free” we still aren’t feeling. She said, “It’s a fairly unethical thing to do, but I don’t think it’s surprising,” she said.”She’s a provocateur, and provocateurs want to be provocative.” Surprisingly, Hirschberg won’t be changing her digits.
