MediaTakeOut has just learned a valuable lesson in humility that should last all of about 52 seconds.
Earlier this week, the website, which has an undying love for the employment of speculation and hyperbole in their stories, reported that Christina Aguilera may have physically abused her son after a picture surfaced showing the child with a black eye.
The allegation made Christina’s camp furious with them threatening legal action. RumorFix has obtained a letter sent to MediaTakeOut slamming them for their brand of shady journalism.
“Our office represents Christina Aguilera and we have reviewed your post where you implied that our client may have been guilty of child abuse because her son had bruises under his eyes. We understand the cult of personality that exists but there are limits that any decent person should respect. Christina is a wonderful mother and was not present in the park when Max fell and hurt himself. To imply that she had something to do with this incident, without any investigation on your part whatsoever, is reckless and unconscionable.
We reserve all our client’s legal and equitable remedies for this reputable disparagement of our client’s character. As set forth above, HAVE YOU NO SHAME!!!!!!!!”
MediaTakeOut has since retracted their bogus report, now claiming:
“Christina’s peeps (aka lawyers) reached out to us. They assure us that the boy’s injury was caused by a playground accident.”
And there you go. Christina isn’t an abusive mother and MediaTakeOut is full of it.
