Worst PR Flack Opening Line Award Goes to: XO Publicity
Usually I keep email correspondences private, but the following message I just received from one publicist at XO Publicity was so crass I had to share it.
"I know your [sic] still upset Jennifer about Chris Brown hitting Rihanna however I was hoping you might attack my red shiny package with [band name removed]'s upcoming release '[album name removed]. And I mean attack it, hit it hard... just like if it was Rihanna and you were Chris Brown (I know bad joke)'"
