Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga And Others End Their (Digital) Lives For Charity

kim_dead_main

As if Leslie Nielsen’s passing wasn’t sad enough, today we also mourn the digital deaths of Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and a host of other celebs. These A-listers are quitting Twitter and Facebook to raise money and awareness for the Keep A Child Alive charity, which fights AIDS all over the globe. The stars plan to boycott the social networking sites starting on World AIDS day (December 1st), and vow to stay offline until $1 million has been raised for the organization.

This “digital life sacrifice” is the brainchild of none other than Alicia Keys, who serves as the global ambassador for Keep A Child Alive. The first posters for their provocative (and morbid) ad campaign have hit the streets, featuring Kim Kardashian lounging in a coffin. Other artists, including Usher, Swizz Beatz, Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Hudson and Elijah Wood, have filmed their “last tweet and testament” for promotional clips.
