Say What? Donald Blames Kate for Topless Pics
Looks like Donald "Mr. Sensitive" Trump has done it yet again – offended people with his mouth. Following Kate Middleton's recent topless photo scandal the Trumpster admonished the princess for taking it all (okay half off) outside. Silly princess, privacy is for plebeians!
"Kate Middleton is great–but she shouldn’t be sunbathing in the nude–only herself to blame," tweeted Trump. The Apprentice's head honcho also added fuel to the fire by writing, "Who wouldn’t take Kate’s picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!"
Uh-oh! Mr. Trump, you aren’t going to make friends with those kinds of incendiary statements. Most people think Kate Middleton is swell and don’t like it when cranky old men chastise pretty, pretty princesses for taking their clothes off in supposed privacy and subsequently have their privacy horribly invaded, resulting in semi-nude photos being splashed all over the tabloids. I mean yes, out of curiosity, we’ll look at said photos but we won’t like it! So get with the program, Trump!
A little background info for all y'all who have been under a rock for the past week: The scandal-making photos are of Kate sunbathing topless with William at a private villa in southern France. The pics show Kate slipping off her teeny bikini top, relaxing on a lounge chair and at one point pulling down the back of her bikini bottoms. Subsequently, France's Closer magazine published 14 photos of Kate last Friday. Other publications have also printed the topless photos – much to the dismay of Buckingham Palace and citizens everywhere.
On Tuesday, a French court opened a criminal investigation into charges that both photographers and Closer magazine breached William and Kate’s privacy when they published topless photos of her. In addition, the court ordered Closer to turn in all of the digital copies of the topless photographs within 24 hours and blocked any future publication of the “brutal display” of the royal couple. Kate and William have also launched a civil suit in France against Closer. British publications, including Closer’s British edition, have promised not to publish the photos.
I am not sure if there will be justice for all but it certainly looks like the French courts are taking the intrusion seriously. Too bad Mr. Trump isn’t. Princess or not – a lady should be free to take her top off when she has believes she is in complete privacy and not expect to see her tatas flashed around the Internet. I bet Trump would feel the same way too if nudey pics of him were all over the web – good thing for all of us no one wants to take photos of that.
