Pamela Anderson criticized for using child as fashion accessory
Pamela Anderson was simply following the hot, new trend of exploiting children when she used a nine-year-old girl to hold her dress at the Hollywood Style Awards. But it appears some child advocacy groups don’t appreciate fashion. Page Six reports:
One guest told Page Six, “People were genuinely shocked. She didn’t even have her own seat and had to sit at Pamela’s feet, where people nearly stepped on her to get to the stage. The girl looked uncomfortable and kept tugging on her dress to get her attention, but Pamela waved her away.
“Pamela was telling people it was her daughter,” the attendee said. “And, after she presented David LaChapelle with an award onstage, she shouted ‘daughter’ in front of the whole auditorium, and slapped her leg like she was calling a puppy. The girl rushed up to grab her train.”
Adelaide is the daughter of makeup artist to the stars Sharon Gault, who was believed to be at the event.
A spokesman for the Child Labor Coalition said, “I would want to speak to the child to ask her if it is something she willingly did. Nine is very young, and an awards ceremony is a long time for a child to be out holding a dress.” Anderson’s agent, Chris Smith, didn’t get back to us.
Ha ha! Child Labor Coalition thinks this kid survived. That’s precious.
