Rashida Jones Taking Heat For 'Tweet Shaming' Celebs

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Another celebrity has taken to Twitter to shame Hollywood's most scantily clad with some harsh words.

But as CBS 2's Emily Smith reported, some are now wondering whether "Parks And Recreation" star Rashida Jones did harm to her own reputation by doing so.

Jones fired off a series of celebrity-shaming tweets this week, complete with the hashtag "#stopactinglikewhores."

The 37-year-old actress didn't name names but New Yorkers had some ideas of their own about who Jones may have been implying.

"Well I don't know. Probably Kim Kardashian with her swimsuit picture recently, I would imagine," one woman guessed.

"OK, Miley Cyrus," another woman said.

Hollywood Life's Bonnie Fuller said there's no doubt Jones' recent tweets are directed at Cyrus' recent outrageous performance at the MTV VMAs, Kim Kardashian's post-baby selfie and Nikki Minaj in leopard print pasties, Smith reported.

Fuller said she doesn't think Jones is right to "tweet shame."

"Not everyone may agree with it but they get results," Fuller told Smith.

Jones followed up that first tweet with a bit of a clarification.

Experts said the eye-catching behavior seems to be working for the stars Jones may have been referring to.

"Miley Cyrus even herself called her own VMAs performance a strategic hot mess," Hollywood Life fashion director Katrina Mitzeliotis told Smith.

While Jones wrapped up her Twitter rant on a positive message, some of her own fans said it wasn't her place to judge.

"When women judge each other and call themselves whores, we're our own worst enemy," said one woman.

Jones' final tweet mentions men and why they don't strip down for attention. Experts noted men are rarely if ever shamed for doing essentially what the women in question have done.
