Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s daughter, Caroline, was caught shoplifting yesterday afternoon on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The 20-year-old was arrested and taken to a police station after being found with about $100 worth of cosmetics and $300 cash in her purse.
Sure, this is definitely a newsworthy tidbit–why on earth did Caroline Giuliani feel the need to shoplift? We’re pretty sure she could’ve afforded to actually purchase those items. But it seems the New York media went absolutely crazy about this–almost rivaling the coverage of Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.
Caroline Guiliani definitely isn’t the first celebrity to commit a crime like this (we’re looking at you,Winona Ryder). So why exactly are people going so crazy over it? And how much of an effect will Caroline’s little mishap have on former Mayor Giuliani’s image?
