Major PR Firm Encourages Businesses To Profit Off Robin Williams’ Death

  • Today in tastelessness: Edelman, the largest PR firm in the world, published a blog post encouraging businesses and mental health agencies to capitalize on Robin Williams’ death with a “visible and aggressive” approach on their social media accounts and websites. The post claimed that Williams’ passing created a “carpe diem moment” for businesses (a pun on his film “Dead Poets Society”), and added that “there’s a very careful line they need to walk so as to not seem exploitive of a terrible situation but at the same time, it is a national teachable moment that shouldn’t be ignored.” Skeevy. [Business Insider]

Where Can I Get This Shirt With Kim Kardashian’s “Ugly Crying Face” On It?

Kim Kardashian

Burt Jenner, Kim Kardashian’s stepbrother, posted this absolute gem of a T-shirt on Instagram and now my soul is pretty much bleeding. Where, oh where, can I track down one of these shirts capturing the finest moments of Kim’s infamous “ugly crying face”? It looks a lot like the Clashist Dapper Ryan Gosling shirt that stole our hearts, but with a way more depressing undertone. Did Burt post this picture to dig up drama or is he just poking fun? I would normally find it super uncool for a dude to get this many laughs over pictures of a woman crying, but in the case of Kim I’m making an exception. After all, there’s no way she won’t find a way to profit off this, so it’s only fair that I get some giggles in over it. [The Gloss, E! Online] [Image via Instagram]
