If Princess Diana Hadn’t Died, She Might Have Joined Facebook. Really?
Here it is:
This coming Friday would have been Diana’s 50th birthday, so that’s how old she’s supposed to look.
They also imagined what Diana’s Facebook page might look like if she were still with us.
I kid you not:
Her friends include J.K. Rowling, Bono, Chelsea Clinton and one of her posts reads, quote, “Sitting with Beckhams front-row at Burberry. Love the shoes!”
There’s also a notification that Diana has become friends with Camilla Parker Bowles…and Prince Charles “liked” it. (???)
“Newsweek” Editor Tina Brown wrote the cover story, in which she predicts that Diana would have moved to New York, stayed young-looking with Botox and had 10 million Twitter followers.
As for the cover, Brown says, quote, “We wanted to bring the memory of Diana alive in a vivid image that transcends time and reflects my piece.”
People everywhere are saying that this is in poor taste. I say it’s just dumb.
What do you think?
