Browsing Facebook the other day I came across a pretty popular status that read:
“Dear little Caylee Anthony, last night on ET, they mentioned that your mommy (Casey Anthony) is going to make a lot of money off a book (her story) and a movie. Caylee, we the public promise you, “WE” will not buy either one. If you promise this to Caylee, then COPY and PASTE this…I DID! Let’s boycott this so she wont get rich from the murder of her BABY GIRL!!!!!! Please spread like wildfire. R.I.P CAYLEE ANTHONY ♥ Every friend on my facebook please make this promise…♥.”
Intrigued about this I decided to do a little research. To my disgust I learned that currently publishers are in a bidding war for Casey Anthony’s book as they feel “everyone wants to read her story”. To make matters worse the bids are in the $8 million dollar range!
Not only does this woman get off free and easy despite obvious neglect of her little girl but now she gets to make money off it too??
For those of you not familiar with the story I will give you a quick overview. Casey Anthony is a 22 year old woman whose daughter was reported missing in December 2008, her daughter’s name was Caylee. Caylee’s remains were later found in the woods. Casey was tried for first degree murder but was acquited of the charges because the prosecution failed to produce the necesary evidence and tried for the death penalty- a VERY hard sentence to get when there is not enough evidence to back things up.
Casey had a very good lawyer and she was painted as a habitual liar. There were so many holes in her story that the jury would have a hard time convicting her. This proved to be the case and she was let go despite the feeling all around the country that she was guilty of killing her daughter or at the very least was a neglectful mother which led to the death of her daughter.
Bloggers I know you like to read- we all do! But please I am begging you- DON’T BUY THIS BOOK! We all need to banned together to stop her from making money off her daughter’s death. This is not right! Please support this cause!
Even if you don’t agree please let me know what you think about this book and if you will be buying it!
