Avril Lavigne‘s bodyguards instruct fans that have ponied up $400 to get their picture taken with the Hello Kitty singer, not to look at, touch or hug her. In other words: Hand over the $400 and get lost.
In the words of Sting, “Don’t stand, don’t stand so, don’t stand so close to me.”
Not surprisingly, these photos of Lavigne and her fans have become something of a viral sensation. The images are getting passed around all over Twitter, which is sure to bring Avril even more negative press. In fact, people are already condemning the singer for putting together such an awkward meet and greet session.
“Whoever Avril Lavigne’s publicist is should be fired. With ‘Hello Kitty’ and then this meet and greet it’s just making her look awful,” one person tweeted.
Another individual wrote, “Apparently Brazilian fans weren’t allowed to touch Avril Lavigne at a meet and greet. What’s most shocking is the news that she has fans.” source
