Same goes for Alicia Keys, Ryan Seacrest, Lady Gaga, Serena Williams, Justin Timberlake and Elijah Wood – who all digitally died by stopping using Twitter and Facebook — to raise money for Alicia Keys’ “Keep a Child Alive” charity.
The premise was that until a certain amount of moolah was raised, these erstwhile celebs would remain six feet under.
And, sadly, no one really minded the quiet.
The world’s top celebrities are sacrificing their digital lives to give real life to millions of people affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India,” the campaign states. “That means no more Twitter or Facebook updates from any of them. No more knowing where they are, what they had for dinner, or what interesting things are happening in their lives. From here on out, they’re dead. Kaput. Finished.
The organizers promised that when fans donated $1,000,000, “everyone will be back online and tweeting in no time.” As of Thursday night, only just $180,000 had been donated – which mans the world is free from lame-o tweets by Kim Kardashian and her entourage of celebs.
However, with a $10 minimum donation, it seems that these superstars wont be tweeting their displeasure about what a flop this campaign was anytime soon.
