Many of the world’s citizens are horrified at the achingly slow trickle of emergency aid being halted on its way to the hundreds of thousands of people left devastated in post-Cyclone Myanmar–a situation complicated by political roadblocks and lack of movement by local government. As helpless as many of us feel, it seems everybody is jumping at the chance to do something to help. The First Lady even felt compelled to speak out this week, criticizing the Burmese government for not properly warning the citizens of the oncoming disaster.*
Other public figures have stepped up to the plate to speak out and try to improve this dire situation, including influential and educated people like actors and reality TV stars.
For example: Kim Kardashian–noted academe and do-gooder–posted an informative piece on her blog yesterday:
The post originally included the PSA Kim and her two sisters (the big one and the midget) filmed pre-Cyclone for Fanista.com’s “Burma: It can’t Wait” campaign. She took the video down at 3pm today, saying that the piece was not yet cleared for distribution. Fortunately, somebody smarter than the Kardashians knew to pull the clip for YouTube:
All I can say is: WOW!
Now this is why it is so very important for celebutards to do their part when the world is in crisis!!
Thank Heaven for the Kardashians, despite their inability to pronounce words off of cue cards, despite their inability to seem any more engaged with existence than corpses on Lithium, despite their ability to really comprehend the vastness of Burma’s “political plight,” despite their rotund asses and pea brains! Thank Heaven for them!
*we do not have an official quote, but we have heard her paraphrased** as saying, “My husband Georgie told me just the other day: ‘Them there’s people aren’t black or nothin’, so we should care about their well bein’! We should tell ‘em when a storm’s a-comin’!'”
