Simon Cowell’s Former Longtime Publicist Sentenced To 8 Years In Prison For Sex Crimes! Find Out What He Did HERE!

simon cowell publicist max clifford sentenced jail sexual assault oj simpson

This is just an awful, horrible story.

Max Clifford is a renowned celebrity publicist, you might have heard of him.

Maybe it's because he represents (or at least represented until very recently) music and TV icon Simon Cowell. Or maybe it's because the 71-year-old Brit was recently convicted of eight counts of indecent assault against a multitude of young women.

Ugh. Absolutely disgusting. It doesn't matter how good he is at PR because this is one of those super icky stories that just cannot be spun.

A British judge has just sentenced him to spend at least eight years in prison for his horrible, reprehensible actions. Though the crimes were all committed over 30 years ago, the judge didn't let that stop him from throwing the book at Max.

Here's an excerpt from the judge's ruling:

PR Executive Fired After "Hateful" Tweets On AIDS & Africa Go Viral! See Her Apology HERE!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTwitter

justine sacco tweet

This is being coined as the extremely insensitive tweet heard round the world!

Justine Sacco, a *former* director of communications at Diller's IAC, was fired after tweeting the following before boarding a flight from London to Africa on December 20th:

“Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!”

As soon as her phone was turned off, Twitter lost its shizzz—spreading the tweet virally and sparking hashtags like #HasJustineLandedYet.

In the midst of the public and media-driven firestorm, IAC issued a statement condemning Justine's words and firing her on the spot:

"The offensive comment does not reflect the views and values of IAC. We take this issue very seriously, and we have parted ways with the employee in question. There is no excuse for the hateful statements that have been made and we condemn them unequivocally. We hope, however, that time and action, and the forgiving human spirit, will not result in the wholesale condemnation of an individual who we have otherwise known to be a decent person at core."

Justine has issued an apology since the incident that you can ch-ch-check it out….AFTER THE JUMP!!!

wal mart decides to cut ties with paula deen

Paula Deen is losing business partners faster than you can say "Pass the butter, y'all!!"

Wal-Mart has become the latest company to cut their ties with the celebrity chef in the wake of her PR nightmare after she admitted to using the N-word!

The super-sized retail chain released a statement on their move, saying:

"We are ending our relationship with Paula Deen Enterprises and we will not place new orders beyond those already committed."

Ouch! Sounds like she'll have to find a new place to sell her butter!

Wal-Mart joins the Food Network and and Ceasars Casino as the latest company to make the wise decision to give the Paula the axe, and they probably wont be the last!

Looks like she picked the perfect time to hire Olivia Pope!

Paula Deen Hires Olivia Pope To Help With Her PR Scandal!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFoodPaula Deen

paula deen hires olivia pope to help with pr nightmare

To say Paula Deen has been in the middle of a PR nightmare after admitting to using the N-word would be a bit of an understatement!

The butter-loving chef was already tossed from the Food Network and recently had her deal with Ceasars Casino terminated, prompting her to make a teary-eyed appearance on the Today show!

So Paula decided to hire an extra hand to help with her damaged image and went for the best: Kerry Washington!

Ok, ok. So she actually hired PR "fixer" Olivia Pope, who inspired Kerry's character in the show Scandal and has worked with high-profile figures like Monica Lewinsky and Michael Vick!

Although we're not sure if ANYONE can really help with Paula's image at this point, it's probably not a bad idea for her to recruit all of the help she can get!
