Question: when did TMZ become a legitimate news source?
Early this morning, the site best known for sex tapes and whatever deep dirt they have on Justin Bieber told us that someone forgot to cancel Joan Rivers’ pending Instagram iPhone promotion after she passed on to a better place.
Here’s the image, which a super-sleuth at TMZ managed to capture moments before it disappeared forever:
We’d like to point out the very sloppy copywriting on this paid placement: no way Rivers would have droned on about “achievement in design” for five whole sentences without making fun of “the most arrogant company in the world.“
We do, however, feel like Rivers (who could teach a few lessons to PR pros, by the way) would have appreciated TMZ’s sense of humor:
“Steve Jobs could not be reached for comment.”
Of course, they still went with the “Promotes iPhone 6 Feet Under” headline. Touche.
