Jessica Simpson appeared on a US TV shopping network recently, apparently drunk, and who could blame her?
Ah, The Daily Mail could, obviously.
Simpson ‘vexed an entire army of loyal Home Shopping Network viewers’, according to the Mail, who went into moral outrage mode rather then discuss the issues behind why someone might ‘appear to be drunk’ on TV.
The singer/actress/designer, 35, was on the channel to promote her range of clothes and accessories.
Commenters were quick to criticise Simpson for her drunk demeanour, with one left in confused wonderment, as the singer’s ‘fashion line has some really cute & stylish pieces but she was very awkward & disconnected as a guest. Was something wrong? Where did she keep disappearing to?’
Another complained that she ‘lacks grace, poise, confidence, and knowledge of her products’, thus ruining the poor viewer’s Thursday night home shopping experience.
Here’s the video:
Whatever the reasons behind her drunk appearance, ridiculing her isn’t going to help anything.
