Following our recent profile of infamous party promoter and Club Kid killer Michael Alig, who we’d like to mention has paid his debt to society, we took him out on the town — specifically to a Bastille Day luncheon hosted by esteemed Park Avenue philanthropist Jean Shafiroff at Le Cirque.
Over a month later, Pagesix took note with piece by Richard Johnson entitled: “Club Kid Killer sends shockwaves through society luncheon.”
“A publicity-seeking freelance writer who had recently profiled the ex-con party promoter brought Alig to the lunch as his ‘plus one.'” the Post reports. That’s us.
The contrast between Alig, a no-holds-barred party legend, with the buttoned up crowd was pretty hilarious. But others didn’t see the humor.
“Jean had no idea who [Alig] was. When someone finally told her, she was shocked and not happy about it,” someone from the luncheon, which was attended by Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, Sharon Bush, Michele Herbert and Margo Langenberg, told Johnson.
Shafiroff supposedly called Alig “a former killer and body chopper.”
“He may be reformed and a nice guy, but I do not want him coming after me,” she said.
That doesn’t sound exactly the way Shariffof normally speaks, to us. In fact, when we reached out she clarified that “I thought Michael was polite and gracious.”
“I do believe in prison reform and wish him a very good life. As a Catholic, I know that God forgives the sins of others — and so should all of us,” she told LLNYC. ” I certainly would never judge this man and wish his a very good life moving forward.”
