Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga Quit Twitter for Charity

Posted by PZ on November 29th, 2010

Kim Kardashian is staging her own death – digital death that is. Kim, along with some other stars are hoping to raise awareness of AIDs by quitting twitter and facebook for World AIDS Day, which is on Wednesday. Kim will join her sister Khloe, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys in the ‘digital death’ – and she is also the face of the campaign which shows Kim is a coffin with a bright red slogan stating ‘Kim Kardashian is Dead’.

The celebrities who are involved have vowed not to be active on either twitter or facebook until $1 million has been raised for the charity ‘Keep a Child Alive’, which is a charity that Alicia Keys works closely with. Many celebrities are taking part in the sudden twitter silencing including Jennifer Hudson, Ryan Seacrest, Elijah Wood, Serena Williams and Keys’s husband, Swizz Beatz. The money raised will support families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.

The co-founder of ‘Keep a Child Alive’ stated:

“We’re trying to sort of make the remark: Why do we care so much about the death of one celebrity as opposed to millions and millions of people dying in the place that we’re all from? It’s about love and respect and human dignity.”
