The honeymoon is over for celebs and social media

The honeymoon is officially over for celebrities and social media.

Just ask Sarah Jessica Parker.

On Feb. 6, the former “Sex and the City” actress commented on co-star Kim Cattrall’s Instagram post that her brother had turned up dead after going missing for several days in Canada.

“Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx,” Parker wrote.

Grieving on social-media platforms often comes across as yucky and self-promotional even between friends. But Parker and Cattrall have a burdensome history of off-screen sparring that made SJP’s apparently innocent comment seem disingenuous.

In return, Cattrall replied with another Instagram post that wasn’t so sweet.

“I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time, @sarahjessicaparker,” she wrote. The caption below the message piled on: “I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”


The international media had a field day with the feud, and the story landed on The Post’s front page with the headline “Stilettos at Dawn.”

So much drama — all from just 94 characters and a click.
