Julia Allison's Gift Card Fire Sale: A Twitter Nation Responds
Julia Allison, worst shillblogger on the planet, spent yesterday trying to sell gift cards and store credits for “cash” or paypal money.
And now, speaking of gift cards, it turns out I have $575 in Sephora gift cards, which I would love to get rid of for $525 cash (or paypal). I also have $442.01 in an Armani Exchange credit, which I’d love to give away for $410. Anyone game? Email me!
Instead of a stampede of fans begging to be allowed to own a real live gift card once used by Julia Allison, ole Jabs got a stunning influx of twitter criticism. A few choice responses include:
Who does the PR for Armani Exchange? Let’s tell them that after getting paid to promote them you are selling their gift cards. about 5 hours ago from web
so the card was given to you for free. You’re making a 100% profit, and we all KNOW you got it for free. It’s a little rude. about 8 hours ago from web
One girl called her out on the fact that Julia is basically selling the free fruits of one of her shills:
What about the Armani Exchange credit that’s clearly from your sponsorship deal with them? Jesus woman. Think before you type. about 12 hours ago from web
Of course Julia never does ANYTHING wrong, and doesn’t understand why you’re so upset!
– I’m confused … Yes, of course it’s from that. But what about it? I got a shirt. Now I don’t have any use for it anymore. ?? about 10 hours ago from web
Seriously if anyone opts to use Julia Allison as a spokesperson or shiller after this then I concede defeat on EVER understanding how blog shilling works. She is so tacky, trashy, and disrespectful to the companies who deign to associate with her that I just don’t get how she ever manages to rope these dopes into deals.
Let’s all hope that this little episode will essentially end her career of ‘lifecasting for shill’.
UPDATE: (From JP) Let’s revisit her shill, shall we?
