Katy Perry Mistakenly Tweets That 100 UNICEF Workers Died On MH17 Malaysian Airlines Fligh
Entertainment Wise ^ | 7-21-14 | Rebecca Merriman

KATY PERRY @katyperry So INCREDIBLY sad to hear that there were 100 volunters for UNICEF on flight #MN17 Sending our prayers to all of the families affected :(

UNCIEF have assured the public that no employees or volunteers for the world organisation were onboard the MH17, Malaysian Airlines flight that was shot down over Ukraine last week after Katy Perry, an ambassador for the company, tweeted that 100 volunteers had died in the accident.

** snip **

With 54 million followers, more than any other Twitter user, Perry's tweet obviously caused confusion and for many, probably panic. It's unclear where she even got the information from and seems pretty unbelievable that she'd even write something like that before even verifying it's content.

Perhaps stars, especially those who have millions of followers and therefore widespread influence, should stay out of politics and current affairs altogether.

“It’s unclear where she even got the information from and seems pretty unbelievable that she’d even write something like that before even verifying it’s content.”

She made it up because it sounded good and well, because the ‘President’ does it, too.

He never opens his trap without fabricating something... posturing and trying to fake like he has command of a subject... We all know he doesn’t command diddley!

I’ve always heard unicef is one of the most corrupt charities in the world.

How does someone who is supposed to be a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF get their facts so incredibly wrong?

Why do you suppose being a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF requires anything in the line of intelligence?

I imagine that a lot of that money goes into the pockets of third world dictators. But that’s okay - it’s “for the children”.

Did you suppose UNICEF only chooses the best and brightest as Goodwill Ambassadors? That their qualifications can only be met by the highest and snootiest of the Upper Class twits?

"I inherited millions from mum"

"I married money"

"I'm a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF"

"Quite impressive old chap"

I’m betting she saw it on facebook, which is full of hoax information all the time.

Examples:

Pot cures cancer, AMA concealing the ‘facts’.
Monsanto is killing people with GMOs.
Fracing is ruining our water supplies.

she’s an airhead

she’s an airhead
thousands in trust - cusp Aquarius - get serious
she’s an airhead
tinted contacts don’t change the fact that black is black
she’s an airhead
and while I’m impressed with the length of those legs
she’s not an intellectual giant....

It wasn't a mistake. She tweeted that on purpose.

Probably a lot of overlap with her followers and people who voted for Obama-twice.

Yep I remember trick or treat for UNICEF. It stands for United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund.

Even if she was guilty, she’s been granted a lifetime BJ Clinton post-POTUS pardon.
