Not only did a bunch of scraggly hipsters show up to mourn, but they brought some spectacular signs, candles, post-it notes to place on the glass of the store, and even a dude with a soulful expression and a guitar.
Yesterday the not-so-shocking news broke that Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries after a mere 72 days of wedded bliss. This tragedy spurred a bunch of jobless people to converge upon the New York outpost of Kardashian’s boutique Dash and hold an impromptu vigil.
It wasn’t completely clear whether the outpouring of emotion was genuine, ironic, or a bit of both.
Odds are these teary ‘fans’ are already in a marketer’s pitch for another Kardashian kollaboration, branded tissues for when the divorce proceedings inevitably become a plotline on the family’s show.
You know what is sad crazy Craiglist people?! Gathering to mourn the loss of a pathetic marriage that was glorified on television. How about gathering to support gay marriage? How about the couples that have been together for years and don’t have the right to get married? Yes, gay marriage is legal in New York but I won’t stop complaining until it is legal in every state in this great country of ours. I bet Kim is going to lose a lot of gays fans after this crap. Sorry, I get a little heated when I talk about this stuff.
I hope the vigil goes well for you crazy people! I am sad that their marriage has to end…but COME ON!
Leave it to Kim Kardashian’s hoard of Dash dolls to collectively mourn the dissolution of their queen bee’s marriage with a candlelight vigil.
