Sometimes I wonder what sort of qualification you need to be a “publicist.” At the very least, you would think that it would help to be familiar with the basics of The Streisand Effect, and making sure that you don’t make something worse. Apparently, that’s not the case for the publicist that Beyonce hired to try to get “unflattering” images taken of her at the Super Bowl disappeared. It all started with Buzzfeed doing what Buzzfeed does — pulling together a silly collection of images. In this case, The 33 Fiercest Moments From Beyonce’s Halftime Show. That apparently resulted in a quick phone call from someone working as a publicist complaining that some of those photos were “unflattering,” which was then followed up by an email… which Buzzfeed chose to post publicly as: The “Unflattering” Photos Beyonce’s Publicist 

 

  1. She’ll catch her death going out like that.
