Twitter outrage is never far away and it is often as misguided as it is hysterical. Take this story…

Ever since she left The Apprentice, Luisa Zissman has barely been out of the spotlight – and she only finished runner up! Every day the tabloids are filled with shots of her in a bikini, in the bath with a mate or spilling out of a nightclub (or dress). But today she’s in the news for a more controversial reason.

For 26-year-old Luisa posted a photo online of her three-year-old daughter – holding a glass of champagne. And some of her 127,000-plus Twitter followers have slammed her for it. Luisa, 26, captioned the snap of smiling Dixie: “Cheers! Merry Xmas #posingwithmummyschampagne”.

But the mum-of-one – who launched a baking firm after being runner-up on Lord Sugar’s show – was slammed by some of her 127,334 followers.

For goodness sake – have these “followers” nothing better to be doing???? The child wasn’t DRINKING the champagne so this faux outrage is stupid. Yet Zissman deleted the image, clearly feeling the pressure that a Twitterstorm can bring. It seems to me that if people are looking for offence, they could perhaps find something a BIT more substantive than a silly pic taken in the spirit of the season.

  1. I/we love The Apprentice, greatly respect Sir Alan’s achievements (if you’re a budding entrepreneur his autobiography is worth a read),
    but we didn’t take to this girl at all.
    Shallow and rather devious.

    It is said that there is no such thing as bad publicity
    (attributed to Phineas T. Barnum),
    and the modern trend is to take whatever opportunities you can to be noticed, regardless of their savouriness, and make money or capital from them.

  2. An ‘autobiography’ – and you believed every word of it?

    I bloody did!
    and Ernest,
    You’re Fired!

  3. They used to be called ‘spivs’, – and he received an ‘Honour’ a few years ago, – I wonder what he got that for?

  4. He’s a Labour man and in one sense I can understand why.
    Although I am instinctively a Conservative
    (so I believe in getting the poor out of ‘poverty’ and into paid work rather than in receipt of handouts, however saintly .. 😉 )

    I have absolutely no time for the snobbery, name dropping, old boy’s network, and glitz and glamour that goes with the Establishment.
    I think Alan took the honour as of right and because it would have appeared churlish not to do so.
