Journalist goes rogue and becomes instant Twitter star


An online journalist, working for the Toronto-based The Globe and Mail, lost patience with his/her employer’s constant celebrity coverage and unleashed an unedited harangue against the wealth and excess of Los Angeles’ elite -- and became a Twitter star.
       
The Canadian newspaper publishes a weekly spot called “Celebrity Photos of the Week” and the anonymous writer replaced the usual captions on what stars were wearing with an acerbic series of comments attacking celebrities for their lack of connection to the “real world”, their profuse self-interest and even their clothing.

The 29 images in the "Celebrity Photos of the Week", published on the newspaper’s website, combined photographs of Hollywood celebs at events with people holding signs at Occupy demonstrations across the United States.


This has earned the anon writer an instant Twitter fan base, as the gallery has been shared on Twitter more than 22,000 times.
