Justin Timberlake doppelganger and Napster cofounder Sean Parker has just about had enough with the backlash to his lavish wedding. In addition to fielding “death threats” from “eco terrorists” on his Facebook page, The Guardian reports that passersby have begun literally spitting on Mr. Parker and his bride.

“We are being spat upon by complete strangers while walking together on the street, cursed at by a waiter in a restaurant who had read bogus media reports about our wedding, and told by complete strangers that we should get our divorce papers ready since our marriage clearly isn’t going to last,” Mr. Parker told The Guardian.

Folks, please stop spitting on Mr. Parker, mostly because it lends legitimacy to his victim complex, and it’s much more fun to mock tech royalty than it is to feel bad for them.
