#PippaTip: Pippa Middleton doesn’t take kindly to Twitter mocking

Pippa Middleton does not like being mocked on Twitter.

@pippatips, a popular Twitter account spoofing Kate Middleton’s sister and her book of incredibly mundane and predictable lifestyle and party tips called Celebrate, is being targeted by Pippa’s legal team. They want it shut down, even though the account clearly states in its bio that it is a parody.

The creator of the account, which has more than 50,000 followers, even published a book called When One Is Expecting: A Posh Person’s Guide To Pregnancy and Parenting. The Independent reported that the book’s publisher has been asked to shut the Twitter account down.

The tweets are funny, but portray the Duchess of Cambridge’s li’l sis as a real dummy. For example:
