I can’t even, Daily Mail. I really can’t.

Funny, though, that if you Google “fit of anger” and hit news, the majority of the stories are about men.  Daily Mail, please just fuck off.

A really excellent post about the hateful creature that is Liz Jones.  There aren’t many that I reserve this much hate for, but she is definitely one of them.

Liz Jones. Where do you start? For the uninitiated, she’s a Daily Mail columnist with a somewhat inflated opinion of herself. Her ideas about life are as simplistic as a 1970s comedian, “men can’t do this”, “why do shop workers never…” and numerous digs at the poor.

She – or her character in the paper – aspires to spending hundreds of pounds on name brand tat, living it up like a billionaire, without having the financial head to stop spending. Back in 2009, she estimated her personal debt at £150,000. That doesn’t stop her from sneering at people that don’t earn six figures working for a newspaper.

There’s also an article about her trip to Somalia, which you can read here.

[TRIGGER WARNING - POSSIBLE ASSAULT?]

This is genuinely awful.

It’s the kind of awkward situation where she could have done with a  Tardis to take her away.

Miss Gillan, 23, who plays the Time Lord’s assistant Amy Pond, was seen ‘whimpering’ in the nude by guests at 7am before security arrived, wrapped her in a sheet and escorted her to her room. 

Doctor Who star Karen Gillan was found naked in a New York hotel corridor after a night of riotous partying.

Her appearance prompted guests to nickname her ‘Lady Godiva’.

She and co-stars including Matt Smith, who plays the Doctor, had been put up at The Ace, one of Manhattan’s trendiest hotels, during a promotional trip.

After fulfilling their duties, the cast and crew enjoyed ‘one long party’, according to fellow guests. One permanent male guest told the Daily Mail he heard someone trying to open his door at 7am. 

The resident, who later identified the stranger as Miss Gillan, said: ‘I went to the peephole and looked out. I saw a man at the lift who was looking back at someone who was attempting to open my door… the next thing I saw was a woman giving this person at my door two towels before getting into the lift and leaving. 

‘Then I saw this young woman, completely naked, trying to wrap two towels around her and not having much luck. 

‘She then started to whimper and knock on my door. Seeing that she wasn’t  getting anywhere, she lay down with the towels covering her.’

Security then arrived, noticed her room key and wrapped her up and took her back to her suite. The resident added: ‘I never saw Lady Godiva again.’

Suzanne Leonara, another resident, said: ‘This girl looked as though she hadn’t been to bed. Everyone who saw her thought she was completely zonked out.’

Whatever happened in New York failed to dull Miss Gillan’s appetite for a party. Last week she was pictured at notorious London nightclub The Box.

The U.S. trip, organised by BBC Worldwide, the Corporation’s commercial arm, took place in April. 

Last night a BBC Worldwide spokesman said: ‘We’re unaware of this alleged incident.’ Miss Gillan’s spokesman declined to comment.

Regardless of whether or not this was Karen Gillan, this sounds like a pretty horrible incident.

Why the fuck didn’t anyone help her? The person who sold this story to the Daily Mail should be fucking ashamed.  From the look of this several people saw her, so why didn’t anyone try and help her out rather than just waiting for security to show up?

This is sickening and makes me so sad.  Whoever it was, I hope they’re okay.
