“We just found out that there are paparazzi outside the restaurant we were eating in. So…why not take this opportunity to bring attention to organizations that need and deserve it? www.wwo.org, www.gildasclubnyc.org. Have a great day!”
I know they mean well but this is kind of wince-inducing in the way only young idealistic people manage to be good-hearted but wrong. If the message is “don’t pay attention to us” then don’t call attention to yourself. If you care about a cause, you can use your celebrity to do more for it than make a cardboard sign smaller than the ones most homeless people have.
