And then there's this.
Someone has created a Twitter account called "Hipster Anne Frank" and modeled it after the thousands of inane, though successful, Twitter accounts by celebrities who are famous for being famous.
So far, whoever made the account is refusing to answer any DMs or direct tweets, so it doesn't seem that person is willing to defend their right to parody such an iconic figure. But, if this joke goes over big, expect a flood of inappropriate Twitter parodies to follow.
There have been Twitter accounts in the name of famous historical figures, most notably those of Jesus and even Hitler. The former is played straight, the latter... well it didn't last long.
But this appears to be the first time that such a revered historical person, an innocent victim of the Nazi Holocaust, and an inspiration for millions around the world for decades, has been lampooned so breezily.
Tweets take on the tone of a Kim Kardashian-type culture vulture, sharing thoughts about "skinny jeans, lofts, and book advances." The account has been up for a mere five days now. Can it last?
What do you think?
