Mariah Carey fans have proven to be a force to be reckoned with in a viral campaign to get the soundtrack to her 2001 album Glitter reevaluated.
The notoriously bad 2001 film of the same name was such a colossal flop that it resulted in the album performing badly in sales, eventually leading to Carey disowning it all together.
Her fans feel that it isn’t that bad and after a viral campaign succeeded in increasing its sales by an incredible 10,000 per cent resulting in it reaching number one in the iTunes charts.
That’s great news for the 48-year-old singer but she might be less pleased to hear about the unfortunate hashtag attached to the campaign.
On paper, #JusticeForGlitter probably sounds OK to a large amount of her fanbase but in the UK, ‘Justice For Glitter’ reads as something much more problematic.

I would suggest you rethink using #JusticeForGlitter in the UK. 😬

I just hiccup-laughed hot chocolate out of my nose in the office. The hashtag no one in the UK needed. https://t.co/WITRnAaL9y
