"Briton's African Gap Year Memoir Sparks Angry Twitter Response"
--Maeve Shearlaw (5 July 2016)
As a privileged 18 year old from the UK, Louise LItton spent her gap year in Zambia.
She recently has written a memoir about her experiences. Her book has
been fiercely denounced by Zambians (both black and white) for being
extremely factually inaccurate and promoting racist stereotypes of Africa.
At best, it seems that Louise Litton wrote a very implausible novel loosely based
upon her some of experiences, which she seems eager to use for self-promotion.
Her critics have accused her of outright lying and shamelessly fabricating incidents.
(If so, she would seem well-qualified to write at RHP.)
Now, as a 'grown woman' (her words), Louise Litton is an aspiring actress and
film producer in Hollywood. She may hope that someone buys the film rights to her book."

I wondered how much fame and fortune Louise Linton could lie her way to.
Presumably on account of her shameless disingenuous self-promotion,
Louise Linton has moved up in the world, having recently married (24 June 2017)
Steven Mnuchin (who's 18 years older), the wealthy US Secretary of the
Treasury (formerly at Goldman Sachs).
As a Trumpian 'trophy wife', Louise Linton already has made the news for her arrogant
sense of entitlement, looking down upon 'lesser' people.
"Mnuchin’s Wife Mocks Oregon Woman Over Lifestyle and Wealth"
"The wife of the Treasury secretary on Monday night took a page from
President Trump’s social media playbook for punching down.
Louise Linton, the [designer] labels-loving wife of Steven Mnuchin, replied
condescendingly to an Instagram poster about her lifestyle and belittled
the woman, Jenni Miller, a mother of three from Portland, Ore., for having
less money than she does."
"Ms. Miller could not understand why Ms. Linton highlighted her brand
labels on a trip to Kentucky, a state with a high poverty rate."
"Louise Linton and the ‘self-sacrifice’ of a mega-rich Trump administration spouse"
"Is everyone connected to Trump contractually obliged to match exactly
his degree of graceless piggery? It would seem so."
respond? On her own Instagram she wrote
“According to my 20-second Google search, [Linton is] an aspiring Penthouse
model who married an old rich guy in a wedding officiated by a homophobe
and attended by other couples of similar age and beauty gaps.
She says she’s a nice person. I doubt it. There weren’t any Nazi sympathizers
at my wedding. #byelouise.”
Louise Linton has posed for 'Maxim' (men's magazine) rather than 'Penthouse'.
"In 2016, Linton drew wide criticism for her self-published book about her experiences
in Zambia, titled In Congo's Shadow, co-authored by Wendy Holden.
After many readers objected to her false portrayal of Zambia, Linton
withdrew her book from sale . The Zambian High Commission in
London and others have criticised the book for its inaccuracies and
promotion of the false narrative of "the white saviour'."
In her only notable role ('trophy wife' ) as an actress, Louise Linton
presumably must hope that her looks will last (or did she get a good prenup?).
