One thing I learnt from West Wing, is that when you are in a public position, someone will always take offence at pretty much anything you do.
So Shabana Azmi recently celebrated her birthday, and her sweet husband got her a cake in the design of a slum.
Personally I couldn’t care less what someone puts on their birthday cake, and I don’t see why anyone else should either, and, considering her body of social work (slum ‘upliftment’), I guess there is some relevance.
But seriously, did nobody involved in buying this cake stop to picture in their mind a group of super rich celebrities standing around a model of a slum and gleefully carving it up among themselves to eat? That was bound to attract negative media attention….
Beyond that, it’s just a bit yuck…. Would you like a slice of the sewerage filled creek, or the garbage covered ground?
