Sometimes I wonder if April 1st isn’t everyday in the world of celebrity gossip.
The Golden Compass actress Dakota Blue Richards has been labeled an “inconsiderate yob” after destroying her neighbor’s snowman. The 13-year-old was criticized after the incident occurred near her home in East Sussex, England this week. From the article,
“Abe Restato, a newsagent who helped build the sculptures, was baffled as to why anyone would deliberately destroy his hard work. He says, ‘We put our heart and soul into that snowman. Now I don’t even want her autograph. She went from cool to very uncool in a very short space of time’. And neighbour John Conrad adds, ‘It seems kids today can’t help being inconsiderate yobs even if they are film stars’.”
Yes, because kids today are a lot different than kids of past days. And how does being a film star mean you can’t be a kid? Who hasn’t seen a sandcastle or snowman and wanted to jump into it. They are generally calling cards to kids of all ages to “come and get me”.
I understand that this might have been a bit more of a work of art than your average snowman. But it’s still a snowman. In a neighborhood with families and kids.
It was only a matter of time. Sorry, Frosty.
