According to Bossip.com murder sells….weight loss, not so much. It seems that writers at the website should have chosen their wording a little bit better when they published a headline that read:
“Publishers Would Rather Try To Make Money from the Hudson Family Murders than J.Hud’s Slimmy Trimmy-Dom.”
Immediately after, a very upset Jennifer Hudson posted on Twitter:
“Everyday I wake up I’m constantly reminded how cruel n heartless the world is.”
A rep for the site claimed Hudson had misunderstood the headline, which apparently was just trying to bring attention to the fact that murder sells more than diets when it comes to marketable stories. To prove his point, the rep went on to say:
“Hudson has been shopping a book about her weight loss for four years, and while publishers are interested, they’re not convinced it’s worth the $1 million she’s reportedly asking for, without her talking about her family.”
The comments have proved incredibly hurting for the actress whose mother and 7-year-old nephew were brutally murdered in 2008.
Although many publishing companies and shows have approached Hudson for exclusives on the tragedy, Hudson has kept mum, not ever commenting about the murders at length with any outlet. Instead, she has been focused on her career and health goals, as well as on her dream to publish a book about her dramatic weight loss transformation.
Hudson tweets included a demand “Bossip, you owe me an apology” and a well deserved “F*ck u!
The controversy comes at the heels of Hudson‘s own apology to her fans, due to the cancellation of the promotional tour for her album “I remember me” which was previously announced for this Summer and then postponed due to “scheduling conflicts”.
The singer posted a heartfelt tweet saying:
“Hey guys! I just want to apologize to all who were looking forward to seeing me on tour this summer. Due to my upcoming projects, the tour has to be rescheduled. I would never cancel a chance to meet my fans! I love all of u n cant wait to see u!”
That’s the way it’s done, Bossip!
