Am I the Only One Who Thinks This is Stupid?

Real celebrities like Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake and reality stars, Kim Kardashian,  are making a digital sacrifice and will be abandoning Twitter and Facebook until $1 million has been raised for World Aids Day and Keep a Child Alive.

To really show these celebs don't play, they have been shot in ads showing them dead in coffins.

What happened to the good ol' fashioned tel-a-thon?
My twitter feed is personally not affected by seeing a lack of tweets from Kim 'fame-whore' Kardashian.

You're taking a break from your VERIFIED accounts anyways! It's not like you guys are giving up half your paychecks for the cause or a small percentage of your income!

I know participants like: Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga and Serena Williams among many others are sincere. I think it's more of the Kardashian presence that bothers me, because at least a few the aforementioned celebrities have gone out of the country to help the cause and seen it firsthand.

Kim Kardashian hasn't really done much in terms of philanthropy. However, I'm pretty sure she's dying without having access to social networking. We all saw how stir-crazy she went without her cell phone.

Swizz Beatz..lookin' like an idiot.

To add to this tomfoolery, the celeb-participants even broadcasted a Last Tweet & Testament.

I'm not trying to hate on the actual cause, and so far fans have donated close to $200,000. So, it is working.
What irritates me is, do these celebs really think they're the sh!t that we really miss not seeing their updates on our Facebook wall or Twitter feed?

I really don't.

The hot-mess celebs who have the fun tweets aren't even participating!
