Actor Olivia Wilde has slammed the US media for ignoring global problems and focusing on gossip about reality TV celebrities.
Wilde, 27, feels that today’s youth are not educated on current affairs because the tabloid bosses are concentrating on stars rather than on genuine issues, reported Daily star.
“I’d like to refocus everyone’s attention away from the Kardashians and onto Doctors Without Borders or aid workers. Let’s redefine scandal,” she said.
Scandal is not who so-and-so is dating; scandal is the fact that 1.2 million people are still living in tents in Haiti. If the average 15 year old was hearing about that instead of so-and-so’s plastic surgery, Id feel better about our future,” she added.
