After Paris Hilton’s appearance caused a paparazzi frenzy at last year’s Oktoberfest, Munich’s locals did not want to see the celebrity heiress at this year’s fest.
As first reported on trendhunter.com, the event organizers were accused of being sellouts because Hilton showed up in 2007 dressed up in a ‘tacky’ Bavarian dress to advertise a brand of canned wines. The chief of tourism, Gabriele Weishaeup, announced that celebrity-related promotions ‘are completely prohibited by the new festival rules.’
Hilton was nowhere to be seen at the 2008 Oktoberfest. Here is a video glimpse of the media circus that surrounded her showing at the event last year.
