Earlier this month, it was Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, building a community garden in Oak Cliff, looking seriously at Dallas police officers, and pressing flesh at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. If you were, say, a socially awkward billionaire whose pop culture reputation has been established as “ruthless Jesse Eisenberg,” it was a savvy public relations move, particularly if you’re looking to make a future leap from technocratic overlord to political leader of the free world: Look at this soft milky man-child, petting a baby longhorn. This is a man you could have a beer with, and vote for. This is a man who will design an algorithm that lowers taxes and defeats ISIS.
Of course, Zuckerberg’s main business in Dallas was testifying in a courtroom over a lawsuit involving the Oculus Rift virtual reality technology. To be fair, it’s not the kind of thing I would post about on Facebook, either.
Now, it’s comedian and daytime TV personality Steve Harvey, popping in at Bishop Arts District cigar shops while in town to testify in a lawsuit over old video footage shot at a Dallas club:
Celebs. They’re just like us: Photographed everywhere they go, quiet about their court dates, and wont to enjoy the amenities of life in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.
