The Perils of showing up drunk in the digital age

I love Liam Neeson and as a fellow Irish Man I don’t doubt he likes a few beers.  This morning when I logged into Facebook there were several posts of Liam drunk on an Irish television show. He was coherent and made sense but he was clearly inebriated.  Now this morning thanks to the viral web it is all over that he showed up drunk.  This talented actor now has a PR nightmare on his hands and I am sure it will blow over eventually but now thanks to You Tube the digital record of what was probably a one off slip up for this very professional actor will stay around forever.  Web sites such as are all carrying the story and the YouTube video has already had 9500 views.

Note to celebrities don’t show up drunk in public your PR agent will not be able to make it disappear off the web.
