How to shame a business like a celebrity — à la Sia

There must be better things to do in life

From SheKnows Canada
Well, Sia is not looking so graceful and mature right now. The singer took to Twitter to enlist her fans in writing bad reviews for a local dry cleaner, which ruined her clothes.

This is really not helping the widely spread presumption that celebrities are spoiled and out of touch with normality (or, sometimes, reality). The Australian singer, Sia Furler, has recently been slapped with a rather unpleasant experience at a dry cleaner in New York City, which left some of her most cherished items in ruins. While most of us can definitely relate to the experience, the 38-year-old singer was not about to turn her head the other way, like we — normies — usually do.

Instead, Sia sent her livid typing hands straight to Twitter (and her half a million followers) to unleash her seething thoughts about this pompous dry cleaner that durst tarnish her garments and enlisted her fans to suggest possible mischief that can be rained upon them in revenge…

Obviously, one tweeter concocted a plan deemed worthy of the crime by Sia, which was to write scathing reviews for the local business on Yelp in retaliation to their susceptibility to human error, and the singer gladly encouraged her fans to do so.

Most of the new negative reviews submitted to the Yelp page of the Metropolitan Garment Cleaning were from users living outside of New York (thereby, not actual customers) and included a vast variety of complaints. One user submitted a photo of burning sheets, another claimed to have caught AIDS at the establishment and one even bluntly stated that he or she was "murdered here." Most of the reviews have since been removed, and what's more, many users have stood up for the dry cleaner by submitting stellar reviews to outweigh the ones written by Sia's followers. High fives for positivity.

We understand the frustration of having one's clothes wrecked at the dry cleaner's, but they're just clothes. Using one's celebrity status to destroy a business and someone's livelihood is a completely different bird. There's room for mistakes in life, people. Come on.

What do you think of this? Would you do the same if you could?
