Please Donít Crash My Wedding, Even If You Are Famous
Yahoo! Celebrity ^ | 1 hour ago | By HowAboutWe

Posted on 06/02/2014 1:07:03 PM PDT by F15Eagle

Tennis player Serena Williams gate crashed a normal schmo's beach wedding in Malibu this weekend, and to show that she cared (sort of) she posted a pic of her and the seemingly surprised bride and groom on her Instagram. Serena remarked on the occasion with "Wedding Crasher!! Congrats!" under the photo, meaning she knew she did something wrong and that she's congratulating herself for doing it. Well, okay, she's really congratulating the couple, but wearing pants or maybe not crashing their big day would've been better. Preferred even.

Why do famous people think this is okay to do? Fine, I admit that it was pretty neat when Bill Murray showed up at a bachelor party or when Taylor Swift crashed that bridal shower, and apparently it was just so darn gracious of the Ghostbusters actor to make a funny speech and for the pop star to bring the bride a KitchenAid Mixer. But you know what? Those aren't gifts. They don't make up for the attention you took away from me. That's underhanded thievery and good PR at my expense. You, Celebrities, are stealing my thunder for personal viral marketing. You don't get to enjoy your own secret wedding and use mine for publicity. You can't have my wedding cake and your wedding cake and eat it too.

“Why do famous people think this is okay to do?”

Because they think the world revolves around them. They are like Obama and think that their mere presence adds to the occasion.

The bride is smiling, but LOOK CAREFULLY:

Is she really happy? No.

She’s being a good sport and PUTTING UP WITH IT.

She’s waiting for her wedding to stop being hijacked.

LOL - you are probably correct.

Just the low-class of this is astounding. Crashing aside, she couldn’t have even dressed ... modestly?

It’s just unbelievable.

If you have your wedding in a wide open place there’s probably going to be crashers. And really, you DO have the ability to say no if some celebrity starts getting in further than you want.

I think you just got the new “hit” of the season.

Maybe that’s what’s happening.

And by “hit” I mean, any trash they can make a “show” about.


George: What did you do today?

Executive: I got up and I came to work.

George: There’s a show! That’s a show!

I saw the Bill Murray clip and it really wasn't all that funny.

Nothing really memorable was said by him, and the bachelors were so drunk out of their minds and so happy to see Bill that he could have just farted and they would have declared it a success.

Tacky is in the eye of the beholder. At a wedding? No, that's no good.

First one into the bathroom on an ice cold morning to get a seat warmed up? Yep, she's qualified.

Serena and both Obamas have done more to set back race relations than any trio in history.

Mean hateful people, help to prejudice others against Blacks in general.

“I had never heard of this stuff before.”

In our modern culture with no standards, anything goes. It has reached the point I am no longer surprised by any antics of celebrities, politicians, or the masses. As we have transitioned from a republic to a democracy, and potentially in the future will transition to a dictatorship, our society seems destined to lower itself in every field of endeavor to the lowest common denominator.

I find it ironic our elitist leaders in academia, journalism, politics, business, entertainment, and sports consider themselves morally and intellectually superior to the average citizen, yet they are the people who have facilitated the descent into the abyss of a depraved culture.

They don’t even have the intellect to see what destruction they are wreaking upon society. Nor the consequences of same.

But I’d be willing to wager a few of them here and there do. Including some in elected offices.

The whole notion of an ‘elite’ or ‘ruling’ class is un-American anyhow. But this is what you get when you make an entire generation think they’re 50 times smarter than they really are.

I heard someone comment today, a female naturally, that you do NOT ever attend a wedding wearing something that upstages the bride. After all, it's her day.

I'm a male but see her point and think what Serena did was trashy.

Well, in defense of Serena, it WAS on a BEACH after all.

We have weddings on the beaches here practically every day. It’s the people in the wedding party who look strange wearing tuxes and such while everyone else is wearing beach clothes.............

It sounds like they were having their wedding on a public (or semi-public) beach where she was sunbathing and she walked over to talk to them and have her picture taken.

That's not the sort of thing one should do, but when I heard the story I thought she was sneaking into somebody's wedding wearing a leopard-print bathing suit, and it sounded more bizarre than it was.

The couple doesn't look too upset in the photos. Strange behavior on the tennis star's part, but not completely crazy.

White 'privilege' is in fact our requirements that we realize that there are unacceptable behaviors.

As an actual genetic and reared WASP, I have an expectation of cultural rules. What fork to use, whether to let the door slam on a Feminist, your name in the paper three times, (Birth, wedding, death.)

If this buttwipe Murrey had crashed my party, or in fact any social occasion, I would have quietly taken him aside, kneed him in the groin so that he would better recall the learning experience, and shoved him out the door.

(I admit that his asshole persona has NEVER amused me, dating back to SNL. I've always used his presence as an indicator of something I can afford to ignore.)

Really if you’re having your wedding on a beach in Malibu you’re almost asking for a celebrity crash. It is kind of odd behavior for Serena, but it’s also become typical. Somewhere in this TMZ world it became expected that when a celeb stumbles on a wedding in a public place they make an appearance. And there’s probably people out there that would get upset if they didn’t (”I’m sure I saw whoever near the wedding but they didn’t come in”).

Taylor Swift crashed that bridal shower,

To be fair, Swift didn't crash a bridal shower. She was invited by the bride herself, a fan who probably figured there was no way in a million years that Swift would actually attend but sent an invite anyways.

And guess what? Swift showed up.

Let’s put a little perspective into this picture...

It seems that our Serena competed in the French Open last week and was run out of the tournament by an unknown by the score of 6-2, 6-2. After the match, she stated that she was going home to work 5 times as hard to elevate her game in the future.

She gate crashes a wedding instead.
