After posting an ultra-creepy image of her daughter, Vivienne, wearing fatigues and an ammo belt yesterday — under the headline “a picture is worth a thousand posts” — O’Donnell got almost universally slammed. Here are just a few of the angry comments:
RO, I AGREE WITH U ON MOSTLY EVERYTHING. BUT SOMEHOW I FOUND THE PICTURE OF VIVI DISTURBING. I DONÃ¢â‚¬â„¢T EVEN LET MY CHILDREN PLAY WITH ANYTHING SIMILAR TO THAT. ITÃ¢â‚¬â„¢S JUST A COMMENT. BUT OH WELL!!!!!!
whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s with the new pic? itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rather disturbing!
Help me out hereÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.Why is that child in the header pic(your child I believe) wearing a bullet belt around her? Is there a political statement ur trying to make?
that picture is gross! I am distrubedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦leaving your site for a clearing of my mind as to what you are up to!
Are you kidding me with that pic of your daughter? Why would you do that?
Not sure of the Ã¢â‚¬Å“messageÃ¢â‚¬? you are trying to send with that pic of Viv, but I guarantee many are not going to get itÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Children with bullets, even fakeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦?? what are u thinking?</div></blockquote>
There were a few positive comments too, but nobody seemed quite sure what the message was supposed to be — a critique of child soldiers? A protest of the war in Iraq? A metaphor for the combative Elisabeth Hasselbeck?
O’Donnell since removed the photo, and rather than just lifting a copy here, I’ll point you to it over at TMZ. Any and all artistic interpretations are welcome.
UPDATE: As bizarre and disturbing as the photo of O’Donnell’s daughter is, somebody managed to top it with this photo of O’Donnell herself. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Many thanks to F.O.S. (Friend of Suburbarazzi) Amy Vernon for the tips.
