The shocking release of Kate Middleton topless photos, taken from a distance while she was at a private villa in France, has sparked debate over the ethics of celebrity media coverage. Most people tend to sympathize with the Duchess of Cambridge here.
Donald Trump, however, is not most people.
In a series of Tweets, the blowhard opined that Middleton herself is to blame for the nude photos - she didn't have to strip down outdoors, after all!
“Kate Middleton is great, but shouldn’t be sunbathing in the nude, she has only herself to blame," writes Trump. "Who wouldn’t take Kate’s picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!”
Somehow we're guessing the British royal family disagrees.
The irate royals are exploring legal options to stop the spread of the Kate Middleton pics, and have already won an injunction against French gossip magazine Closer.
However, at least two other tabloids have run the pics - both in other nations not bound by the ruling - and that's just print media. The Internet is a different beast.
What do you think of Trump's statement? Is he for real? We know he likes to weigh in on whatever's trending, but does he have a valid point? Comment/vote below ...
