Because “if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” is the hillbilly second cousin of “if it wasn’t tweeted, the thought is deleted” or “if it’s not in a insta story, the bitch isn’t really sorry” (read in a Canadian accent to rhyme “story” with “sorry“), Jennie Garth is getting shit from people for not joining some of her 90210 cast mates in posting photos of Luke Perry with kind words on social media following his death on March 4. And because this is Kelly Taylor and Dylan McKay we are talking about, mourning “Team Brenda” fans are taking this opportunity to tell Jennie what a who-re she is, which has her clapping back.
Jennie’s Instagram page was radio silent, as was Tori Spelling’s, following Luke’s passing, with sad fans clearly hanging on to see how she would weigh in on Luke’s death. Jennie’s page was left without comment until yesterday, when she posted a photo of her three daughters with ex-husband Peter Facinelli for International Women’s Day. That’s all the comment haters needed to attack Jennie for not posting anything about Luke… despite the fact that she had already issued a sweet statement about him right after his passing.
Jennie snapped back in the comments section. via Us Weekly:
“Hey everyone … I chose to post a pic of my girls today. Because they are my life. Because today is a day to celebrate all women. It took a lot for me to want to celebrate anything. I thought about it and I know that’s the way my dear friend would have wanted it.”
She continued: “His kids were his life. And anyone who knew him knows that and knows he didn’t give a fuck about social media. So please don’t assume or judge or make rude comments. That’s really uncool. Sincerely, Jennie.”
Not since the fresh days of the Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie “feuding” over failed housing developer William Bradley Pitt has the word “uncool” packed such a punch. It is such a Kelly Taylor move to drop some insight bombs that Luke would have hated the social media attention and therefore her lack of an online tribute is actually a tribute. Fuck, Kelly Taylor. Well played, Kelly Taylor. Kelly’s haters got off easy, because it could’ve been worse for them. She could’ve gotten with their boyfriend during summer break or snitched on them for smoking pot.
