fans “irate” after Jessica flees Wal-Mart.

fans “irate” after Jessica flees Wal-Mart.
Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica star Jessica Simpson had to flee a Mass. Wal-Mart after thousands of people showed up to get her autograph. Among the problems Jessica caused: Traffic was backed up and some fans hid inside the Wal-Mart, which closed early for her appearance. According to The Boston Globe, “after arriving late, she left the store after a half-hour when Danvers police said the thousands waiting for a glimpse of Simpson posed a threat to public safety.” Jessica’s fans were not happy. One of them, a 33-year-old woman named Linda Dipietrantonio who needs to seriously examine her priorities, said, “I’m completely irate. I spent five hours outside WalMart with my two children and I’m eight months pregnant. We just purchased the new CD, and she got up and left all of her fans in the freezing cold because she was scared.”
