$1,000 For A Selfie With Stallone!

Wow.  What the fuck.  Anyone want to get a picture with Sylvester Stallone?   Well you’d better cough up over $1,000!  According to Fox News, Stallone is hanging out with fans, as long as they bring their cheque books!

Sylvester Stallone fans hit out after being charged a whopping $1,081 to get a selfie with the Rocky legend.

The A-lister, 72, is to visit Manchester, London and Birmingham to share “untold stories” and promote his final Rambo film Last Blood.”

The black-tie dinner, called “An Evening with Sylvester Stallone” which takes place across three dates in August and September, will see a live stage interview, a three-course dinner, film prop models and an auction selling signed memorabilia.

The cheapest packages start at $160 a ticket but go up to $1,081 for the “premium photo experience” which allows film buffs to get a selfie with the man himself.

Of course, long term readers of this site should not be surprised.  In fact, the price seems to have gone down.  Here is an article I put up just last year:  Wanna Meet Sylvester Stallone?  That’ll Be $6,000.

This of course reminds us of the time Stallone attended an event which charged $2,500 to have photos taken with him… in the toilets.

What a greedy bastard!

Worse, some fans got screwed out of their money.  The last entry I have on the site for that reads thus:

In an update to this story, it appears that fans who paid $2,500/£1,500 have not been refunded.  Those seeking information about refunds are being ignored by the organiser,

So some didn’t even get what they paid to see.  They may have gotten a refund since then.  According to Google, Sylvester Stallone’s net worth is $400 million.

Now we know why he’s showing up for turds like Escape Plan 3.  Pathological greed appears to be a real problem for Sylvester Stallone.

Does Stallone see any of this money? If not, surely he’s aware of the extortion at play by now? Why does he keep facilitating this?
