Ah, I didn't get the joke. Not the first time and probably won't be the last.

What's newsworthy about the other people? The celebs are the hooks - that's why I clicked on the stories. That's why everyone clicked on the stories. The rest of the people are certainly in trouble too - who cares if they didn't get the press coverage?

What’s newsworthy about them? They’re the shame of the nation! Isn’t that enough? I think the fact that the heirs to the Hot Pocket fortune, who don’t really work, were involved in this COULD BE a story. But it’s not.

What's a bigger deal - a convenience store robber shooting the clerk or Tom Cruise shooting the clerk? Which story are you more likely to read?

As for your Hot Pockets example, I see plenty of mention of that - just a quick Google search turned up stories on Fox News, USA Today and NPR.

Oh it was reported. But then 99% of the coverage was about the actresses. And I’m sure all the others are stoked.

The guy who tweeted seems to wish we could do better. Lock up the real criminals. But I don’t think that’s what we want. We just want schaudenfreud upon names we recognize.

...just like 99% of the coverage would be about Tom Cruise shooting someone.

Yeah his demeanor says it all. He doesn't give a shit. This was a photo op and the only thing rattling around his head is "how long before we can leave?"

How fucked up is it that Twitter feels the need to hide that video because it might be upsetting.
