It’s the most brilliant thing you’ll see on the internet today – Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis responding to a tabloid cover claiming in giant, bold, yellow letters “IT’S OVER” between them. And not only is it over, Mila is taking the kids!
So here’s what the tabloid would’ve looked like if they weren’t fabricating stories:

We do love that Mila and Ashton can laugh about this (for now). But at CelebrityKind, we believe it shouldn’t be happening. As actor Dax Shepard once said, “the power lies with the consumer.”
So here’s what you can do to stop the sh** show that’s become celebrity journalism:
THINK TWICE about the publications you throw your money at. The more you buy, the more of this rubbish they will write.
THINK TWICE about what you click on. Same deal. The more you click, the more they’ll write.
LOOK FOR the publications the celebrities themselves support. Quite often they’ll do interviews and post the link on social media. These are the ones you want to read, not the ones where an unnamed mystery source is telling us that Jennifer Anniston is pregnant for the 748th time this year.
WHY WE NEED TO CARE: Because in this age of Insta fame and social media, literally anyone can become a celebrity overnight whether we want to or not – a boy throwing an egg at a politician, a teenager suddenly thrown into the spotlight because her famous father’s passed away – no one is immune from being “the story.”
