Katy Hall. Katy Hall. I am (almost) starting to feel sorry for you. Well, not really, but it sounds good to say that. You will remember the young Ms. Hall from her recent HuffPost piece “Katy Hall: Stay Off My Beach.” Ok, truth be told, that was IW’s take on Katy’s article, but it certainly described the tone of Ms. Hall’s entitled reaction to outsiders (i.e., Kate Gosselin and her kids) visiting upper crust Bald Head Island where the landed gentry, such as the Hall family, have a second (third, fourth?) home.
I had just about forgotten the name Katy Hall. That was until my morning radio DJ read a rather funny response (note: mild profanity is contained in the link) musician John Mayer wrote in reaction to a story the Huffington Post published this week that alleged Mayer and Jennifer Aniston were once again a couple. Let’s just say the HuffPost story had a LOT of holes in it and Mayer was none too pleased to be the victim of their shoddy journalism. Who do you think the writer of the HuffPost piece was? Why our very own Katy Hall!!! And remember, she is also the Entertainment Editor, so she must have approved her own piece! You can read the original item here, if you are so inclined. It’s funny just to spot how many “Updates” Katy has had to post to the piece since yesterday.
I am the first to admit that John Mayer can be a jerk. He would probably agree with that statement. He is also a pretty funny, however:
“Huffington Post, this is reporting? How do you pay your writers now, in Silly Bandz? Do you meet your sources in a malt shoppe? This is equal parts fabricated, cobbled together and misleading.”
And how about this. Pretty spot on, in my opinion:
“The reason I’m calling you out instead of all the other magazines that make stories up out of thin air is that In Touch and Star Magazine aren’t concurrently writing pieces about Pat Tillman or WikiLeaks. Those other rags know who they are, and even if they’re obnoxious, I’d rather have to live with them because they (and the rest of the world) know where they stand, which doesn’t make them one tenth as dangerous as you are.”
So there you have it. The latest installment of the “Katy Hall Sucks at Her Job Chronicles.” I will be retiring from the Sport of making fun of Katy Hall after this article (see that’s why we puts this in Sports). It’s just too easy.
