Could Casey Anthony be a foreign hit?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26879points) July 7th, 2011

If the press here in the US boycotts or gives Casey Anthony the cold shoulder, could she go overseas to places like Japan that are crazy for all things American, or Yankee crazy and be a big hit, and make a ton of money?

Are you suggesting she’s going to try to cash in on the experience with a book or speaking tour or something?

@FutureMemory If the foreigners will lap it up, why would she not try Also gives her a forum to proclaim her innocence over and over and get paid to do it.

I don’t think she’d have much luck. It seems to me that those countries that have an obsession with American culture (such as the Japanese, like you pointed out) are enamored with our innocuous cultural trends, such as music or clothing. Far cry from being fascinated with our murderers.

Not really. Most of us haven’t heard of her unless we know someone from the U.S. or frequent U.S. based websites. Seriously, she’s nobody to the rest of us.

She’ll make a fortune. She already has backing. Didn’t you notice the manicure, perfect hair and makeup? I give it 6 months, and she will be on the cover of half of the trash magazines in the supermarket. (You know, the ones that men scoff at and women buy.)
There are a ton of stupid guys out there who are thinking right now “Dude she’s totally hot. I’d marry her.”
I’ll bet she already has a publicist, and manager for speaking and interview requests.

I will make a further prediction. Five months from now, she will wrap her new car around a tree after a night of partying.

I’m hoping that she’ll end up like Tonya Harding. Living in a trailer somewhere.

No, I don’t think so. But she could go overseas and be anonymous.
