You used to give me roses

Author: Helen

When P@ris Hilt0n was sentenced to 45 days’ jail, amid interjections from her mum which showed clearly the contempt she has for the justice system, her lawyer was heard to say:

…the sentence was “uncalled for, inappropriate and bordered on the ludicrous.”

“I think she’s singled out because of who she is,” Weitzman said.

The callous solipsism of privileged people in the US knows no bounds. There are other groups of people who, it’s been shown, really do get singled out because of who they are. But they’re not white celebrities.

While surfing the distasteful “celebrity” news sections for this item, I learned that Br1tney Spe@rs is planning to call her unborn sprog Jailynn, apparently. You just can’t write satire about these people.
 
 
Update: Time taken for some spambot to find this and trackback to its “blog”, “Parishiltonjailblog.com”: about twenty minutes.

Class-y.

    I read elsewhere that she turned up 15 minutes late to court too. Great tactical thinking, there.

    All part of the entitlement continuum. Her mum’s remarks show that they expected special treatment and were shocked, shocked!! when they didn’t.

    Hilt0n’s name munged now as it’s obviously enormous spambait – I should have thought.

    Women frequently get singled out for special “teach them a lesson” treatment by the courts. Paris Hilton is clearly an uppity woman who thought she would be treated the same way male celebs are.
