There is a god

From New York Magazine:

“Last Saturday night, Perez Hilton tore himself away from drawing on photos with MS Paint to make an appearance at a Hot Topic at a Los Angeles mall to launch his new clothing line. You know, the one that includes blog flip-flops? We couldn’t believe such items would actually be made and put up for sale in a real store. But we assumed if a retailer like Hot Topic was investing in the product, people were bound to buy. But then no one showed up to the launch event. But then, this report emerged on Jossip from an employee of that very Hot Topic:

ONLY 7 people showed up.SEVEN.That’s it.Mario was BEYOND upset texting and DEMENDING the right water,food,ETC he was a rude royal pain in the ass and BEYOND crass… My manager was trying to get people to come in to meet Perez by handing out $5 gift cards NO ONE WANTED TO MEET HIM! …he left around 8:45PM without saying goodbye to anyone & looked like he had been crying like the little bitch he is. We sold a grand total of $6.45 of Perez Hilton items between 6PM – 9PM. My manager has already talked about discounting his ‘line’ !”

Perhaps if Hot Topic had asked itself, “Is this a person people want to look like, dress like, and be like?” it would have realized, like everyone who didn’t show up to this sad little party, the answer is a resounding “NO,” and this grand embarrassment would have never occurred.”
