Question: What's the #1 thing to remember about about celebs?
Answer: They are people too! (Not deities that is.)
Notoriously outspoken Aussie rapper, Iggy Azalea, is feuding with pizza chain Papa John's after one of its staff members neglected to recall this fact. Apparently, Iggy (real name: Amethyst Amelia Kelly) ordered a cheese-laden pie for delivery . . . and then began receiving unsolicited text messages and calls like:
Turns out that the Papa John's employee gave out Iggy's number to a devoted fan-boy "relative"—i.e. his brother—who felt the need to violate Iggy's cellular device to plead for virtual contact.
. . . and because we live in a dystopian society where feuds are waged publicly in the gladiatorial arena known as Twitter, Iggy took to the micro-blog to lambaste the pizza-hawkers.
Papa John's eventually offered a decidedly weak apology:
Needless to say, this doesn't feel like a sufficient or appropriate reaction. Having employees offer up someone's personal number—especially a company which not only has access to your physical address but your credit card information—is a gross violation of privacy. And totally illegal.
Not to mention scary as hell—who wants some maybe-psychotic superfan showing up on their doorstep?
So having someone's mother scold them is probably not the finest recourse Papa John's could have taken.
Perhaps DiGiorno put it best:
.@IGGYAZALEA delivery. smh
