Random House’s Facebook page has also been blitzed by angry users promising an extensive boycott of the publisher if it signs any deals to publish a memoir by Casey Anthony (a spokesperson for one Random House imprint said no such deals are being pursued there.)
We reported earlier about a similar protest lodged at Simon & Schuster’s Facebook page, forcing that publisher to issue a statement that it would not be publishing any such book.
Random House seems to have escaped the worst of the drubbing Simon & Schuster got and has not yet reached the point where it feels it needs to release a statement (indeed, its publicists have ignored the angry missives, instead blithely posting about “Five Crazy Harry Potter Bento Boxes” and wishing everyone a “Happy George RR Martin Dance With Dragons Day.”)
Meanwhile, posts like this one line the wall:
ANY COMPANY trying too make blood money off off Caylee Marie Anthony WILL be BOYCOTTED!! I am disgusted !! People leave your feelings here so they know we will NOT support them. 8 million dollars for Casey the baby killer that got off?? Thats the rumor.
And this one:
a baby killer should not profit from the death of her daughter. WHAT ABOUT CAYLEE?????? everyone has forgotten there is a dead child in all of this!
