After news surfaced that Marine Sgt. Scott Moore had procured himself a date with movie star Mila Kunis, you knew that he wouldn’t be the last person stationed overseas to try to use the power of social media to pressure a Hollywood celebrity to “do it for the troops.”
Jennifer (last name unintelligible here) wants Justin Timberlake to know that she’s a Captain in the U.S. Army stationed at Camp Victory and she would like him to join her for her birthday on September 6th in Iraq.
Points to Captain Jennifer for calling out Justin, who pretty much put Mila on the spot over the weekend and made it impossible to say no to Sgt. Moore’s invitation.
And now we’ve got Corporal Kelsey De Santis calling out Justin for pressuring Mila and challenging him to be her date for the Marine Corps Ball in Washington this November.
Of course, news is coming out from Access Hollywood Live’s Billy Bush that Mila’s making a bunch of movies right now and she’ll be too busy to hook up for the dance, so sorry about everyone thinking you were the man there for a couple of days and now you’re not. Plus the magazine we saw in the checkout line down at the supermarket says that Justin just got back together with Jessica Biel. No way is she going to let him out of her sight anytime soon.
We don’t want to discourage anyone from chasing their dreams but, when it comes to show biz romance, it’s definitely gotta be buyer beware.
UPDATE: So it looks like our caution was misplaced. Justin Timberlake announced this weekend that he’s going to attend the Marine Corps Ball as Kelsey’s date. Our condolences to Jennifer, who did ask first. Maybe next time you flash your full name up on the screen so the celebrity publicists can actually track you down without much effort.
