Blake Lively’s Trolling Turned Marketing Masterstroke Amidst Kate Middleton’s Photo Controversy

In a clever blend of humor and promotion, actress Blake Lively recently took a playful jab at the royal family, specifically targeting Kate Middleton’s recent photo controversy, while simultaneously promoting her own brand.

The 36-year-old star, known for her role in Gossip Girl, seized the opportunity to troll the royal after news agencies pulled Middleton’s Mother’s Day U.K. photo on March 10, citing manipulation concerns.

Lively took to her Instagram account to share a photo of herself with a comically photoshopped image of her head on a disfigured woman’s body, lounging by a pool with one of her Betty Buzz drinks in hand. Alongside the image, she cheekily wrote, “I’m so excited to share this new photo I just took today. Now you know why I’ve been MIA,” poking fun at Kate’s recent absence from the public eye.

The Betty Buzz account joined in on the fun, playfully commenting, “Haters will say it’s photoshop.”

Not content with just trolling, Lively also revealed that she’s been working on two mocktails and four new products for her beverage company, further intertwining the promotion with her comedic antics.

Fans were quick to praise Lively’s marketing prowess, hailing her as a “mastermind” for cleverly capitalizing on the buzz surrounding Kate Middleton’s private recovery from abdominal surgery, which escalated following the royal’s admission of editing her family portrait.

In a statement posted by Kensington Palace on March 11, Middleton expressed regret, stating, “Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing. I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused. I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother’s Day.”

Lively’s lighthearted approach not only garnered attention for her brand but also added a touch of levity to a situation that had been fraught with controversy. With her sharp wit and savvy marketing tactics, she once again proves herself to be a force to be reckoned with in both Hollywood and the business world.
