Shameless! Vicki Gunvalson is feeling the heat after she attempted to cash in on the death of Luke Perry!
The Real Housewives of Orange County OG used the 90120 star’s death as a way to promote her Coto Insurance company.
“I know most of you have heard about the unfortunate passing of Luke Perry at the young age of 52,” Vicki wrote on Facebook while sharing a Forbes article about the actor’s death.“Luke was responsible in his estate planning and because of that, he relieved his family of a lot of the burdens that would happen if he didn’t have it in place the way he did. It makes you realize how important Planning is and how NOT to procrastinate taking care of a trust, health directives and securing life insurance for those you leave behind. So sad.”
However, the post didn’t go over well with fans who quickly accused the reality TV star of trying to cash in on Perry’s death.
“Really? Capitalizing off of another person’s death to get business…SO UNBELIEVABLY TACKY,” one follower wrote.
Another user echoed similar sentiments.
“I was a fan, but not anymore. TACKY of you to advertise your insurance company with the unfortunate passing of a celebrity. We all know, or should know, to plan for our futures. Shame on you!”
Then another follower took a personal swipe at Vicki, who found out about her mom’s passing while filming an episode of RHOC.
“How would you like it if somebody posted this when your Mom died Vicki? Like that’s what’s important when family is grieving over the loss of a loved one. Besides, whether he was prepared financially or not is none of anybody’s business to be putting on social media or to be using to promote your own business. Sick, Vicki….money hungry and heartless. Get yourself together, seriously. May Luke Perry rest peacefully and his family find strength during this time of great loss.”
Vicki was further vilified by other comments on the post.
“This is literally disgusting…take this post down. It was already said that he wrote a will and left everything to his children. Stop being ridiculous.”
“Really? Using the death of a star to promote your insurance business? Super poor taste,” and “Wow lady you should be ashamed of yourself, really how disrespectful are you.”
Talk about disgusting! Vicki should feel ashamed of herself.
