Celine Dion needs to learn how to take a joke. The Canadian singer has redefined “diva” by threatening legal action against the administrator of the ‘Ridiculous Pictures of Celine Dion” tumblr. As advertised, the site specialized in unflattering and funny photos of Dion, of which there are admittedly many to choose from. Apparently the singer stumbled onto the blog (while Google-ing herself?) and her lawyers sent the editor a cease and desist notice resulting in the site’s closure.
The humble blogger signed off with an entry entitled “Céline Dion vs. Yourself.” “Céline Dion found our blog, and she didn’t like it,” they wrote. “We just got a letter from Céline’s lawyers [saying that] that the blog has to be shut down. Though this blog is well within the realm of ‘fair use’, I don’t have the money or time to get a lawyer to respond. The dream is over. Thanks for following and being a Céline superfan. I’ll always remember u, I’ll never let go.”
This aggression will not stand! We don’t know about you, but we feel like spearheading a legal defense fund for the tumblr. It is our constitutional right to post absurd faces of Oscar winning chanteuses! Until the Ridiculous Pictures of Celine Dion tumblr is revived, we will post a ridiculous photo of Celine every HOUR (note to Celine’s lawyers: we won’t do this). Until this wrong is righted, no blog is safe. Flood the web with hilarious Celine faces! We must keep the dream alive! Bloggers of the world, unite!
