We’ve got iPhones, PlayStation 3’s and Wi-Fi, yet we still throw rotten fruit at people to express our displeasure. The reasoning behind this is unknown, but when there is video footage of Kim Kardashian being pelted with flour I can happily live without any justifications. Here’s Kim and 4 other very one-sided celebrity food fights.
We live in a world that seems to be filled with equal parts poverty and reality TV. For every person rifling through a bin and stealing bread from Tesco’s, there is a billionaire’s daughter flogging her sex tape in order to kick start a successful ‘career’ of being paid to visit nightclubs clubs and advertising running shoes using her ample buttocks.
Unsurprisingly some people have not taken kindly to those whose occupation is to be stupid and attractive, leading one woman to make a statement by… err… throwing flour at Kim Kardashian. F*** the system, man!
Michael Jackson, John Landis and Macauley Culkin
If there is a stranger trio than these three then I have yet to see it, but it is made even stranger when you witness them engaging in a pie-based food fight led by an enthusiastic MJ. If you watch anything creepier than this video this weekend, then please inform us (or alert the authorities).
After his involvement with the phone hackings News International boss Rupert Murdoch probably deserves a lot more than just a delicious custard pie in his face, but that’s what the 80-year-old got as he was giving evidence to MP’s regarding his involvement with the scandal.
What was even more surprising than the pie incident, however, was Murdoch’s agile wife leaping to her husband’s aide and dealing with his attacker with all the speed of a character from Tenchu. We’re not a big fan of your husband but we certainly respect you, Mrs Murdoch (please don’t hurt us).
What’s more baffling than someone risking spending time in jail to throw food at a celebrity? Someone paying for a ticket to watch that celebrity, only to then throw food at them and end up in jail. What is even more baffling is that the food thrown at Biebz is so specific – a bag of Sour Patch Kids candy, tucked inside a t-shirt and then wrapped in Christmas paper. Maybe the assailant intended it as an early festive gift, but if that’s the case then they completely dismissed the first rule of pleasing a teen icon – DON’T MESS WITH THEIR HAIR.
Daphne & Celeste
Remember when Daphne & Celeste were popular? Wow, what was that all about? I’ve just wiki searched them and found that Melody Maker awarded their debut album four out of five stars – terrifying, isn’t it?
Thankfully their reign at the top of the chart was brought to a satisfying end thanks to a rowdy Reading crowd, who threw practically anything they could get their hands on at the duo, dousing their short-lived career in overpriced festival beer and burnt hamburgers.
My favourite part of this video is when the Daphne/Celeste claims that it was “exciting” to be hated that much, trying hard to find a smidgeon of joy in the memory of having bottles of urine thrown at her in front of a crowd of thousands of people.
