Vandalising celebrity Wikipedia pages

Tonight on Good News Week the comedian Amanda Keller discussed the vandalism of her Wikipedia page, describing the addition of such “facts” as:

  • She went broke making ATMs for midgets.
  • She worked on a short-running TV show “Shower Time With Uncle Bert”.

A few minutes after the segment on Good News Week went to air, people were helpful enough to add the “facts” into the page, at least until the page was locked. Will the wonders of Wikipedia ever cease?
