Occasionally in life one can end up being the beneficiary of unintended consequences.
About a week ago I noticed a significant increase in readership from the Far East so LM put on my Sherlock Holmes hat and interrogated my analytics/stats to establish what was going on.
This typically cheeky post which was intended to contrast Paris Hilton's dress sense with that of Mezghan Hussainy, appears to have been the main interest and focus point. A rumour seems to have spread initially in Singapore then Malaysia and Indonesia before like wildfire spreading to North America and Europe that Paris Hilton had reverted to Islam.
LM has no problem with literally thousands of new readers every day or for that matter Paris Hilton becoming a Muslim however, given they appear to be under a misapprehension about Paris Hilton I posted this article in the genuine belief it would clarify the situation and bring closure.
While perhaps the picture was a bit cheeky and possibly inadvertently contributed to the confusion I now find that what can only be described as the online equivalent of mass hysteria appears to have broken out with thousands more arriving on this blog in the belief that Paris Hilton has reverted to Islam.
Can LM for the last occasion try and make clear that Ms Hilton is not a Muslim, she has not reverted to Islam, does not wear a Hijab, her new name is not "Tahira" and she will not be opening a new Islamic school in Hollywood. However, should anyone out there be in a position to get a statement from her PR guys I'd be extremely grateful.
