What kind of sick society are we freakin’ living in? Jackonville’s Showbiz Promotions had created a doll (pictured above) in Caylee Anthony’s image, supposedly as a tribute to her. As you can imagine, that sparked a lot of outrage which has caused them to suspend production of the doll. Thank goodness! How disgusting that people try to profit off tragedy ! From the folks in the Bahamas who tried to extort $25 million from John Travolta ,to keep his dead son’s pictures out of the tabloids, to these creatures who made that Caylee doll, the parasites seem to feed off of tragedy. How gross! Here’s more from ABC News:
“A Florida manufacturer’s development of a doll resembling slain toddler Caylee Anthony has stirred controversy and added to the state’s growing reputation as an incubator for odd news stories.
The Caylee Sunshine Doll comes clad in a bright T-shirt that bears her name and plays “You Are My Sunshine” when her stomach is pushed. It was developed by Jackonville’s Showbiz Promotions, a company that, according to its Web site, specializes in gifts and items that are in the news.
But it is the company’s decision to create the doll, and not its attempt to pay tribute to the young girl, that is now dominating headlines, so much so that the company has halted production and suspended the doll’s launch.
“After reviewing the response to our media introduction of the Sunshine Caylee Doll and listening to the advice of the general public, we feel that it is best to suspend the launch of the Sunshine Caylee Doll,” Showbiz Promotions President Jaime Salcedo wrote in a statement released today. While we still feel it is important to raise awareness and raise money to help stop this type of crime from being committed, we feel we can be more effective using traditional methods,” wrote Salcedo.
On its Web site, the company said that “holding a Caylee Sunshine Doll can help us remember that all the children taken from this world prematurely are dancing, playing & singing their sunshine song forever!
“This is an example of another person trying to profit from the tragedy of Caylee’s death,” family lawyer Brad Conway told the Sentinel Monday. “[Salcedo] has never met my clients, spoken to my clients and has not gotten the authority of any type to do this.”
Showbiz Promotions had planned to sell the doll for $29.99.”(End of Excerpt) Read the article in it’s entirety here: (http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=6741655&page=1
