Dreyfus Controversy Not What It Seems – Fooled Again

"Admit it.  It's a cool autograph."

“Admit it. It’s a cool autograph.”

Sure she’s hot for a 53 year old, but what makes her even “hotter” is she’s worth $3 billion dollars!  You read that correctly. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, of “Seinfeld” fame, is one of the richest celebrities…hell she’s one of the richest people in America!  The comic-actress comes from a very rich family…as in the top 1% of the top 1%.  In my book that qualifies her for “smokin’ hot” status.

She now stars in the HBO comedy “Veep” and to give the show a little publicity she posed for a naked picture with a fake Constitution tattoo on her back.  The one signed by John Hancock.

Politically conservative blogs and history buffs went crazy on social media with corrections and tweets.

If you were paying attention to your American history lessons in the 3rd grade you know the recognizable autograph of Hancock was on the Declaration of Independence. Hancock refused to sign the Constitution because it didn’t include a bill of rights and he felt it gave to much power to a centralized government.

So how can a mistake like this happen?  It wasn’t a mistake. We live in a world of social media and nothing spreads publicity on social media like outrage from bloggers.

First, Dreyfus plays a bumbling Vice President on “Veep.”  The mistake is a subtle joke about the show’s main character Selina Meyer.

Second, on its own would that Rolling Stone cover get any talk or buzz today?  No.  How many times have you seen a naked actress?  By now, I hope plenty of times.  If not, please step away from the video games.

Third, make a small error, see if you can outrage people and provoke them into providing free publicity for your magazine through their social media accounts.  Genius.

Fourth, what happens this week in New York City (Brooklyn actually)?  The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s co-founder is Jann Wenner, the publisher of (wait for it) Rolling Stone Magazine.

As a Rolling Stone Magazine spokesperson explained, the Declaration of Independence is on her front and they couldn’t fit in all the signatures.

Stand down.
