Amanda Knox Italian Magazine Cover Includes Knife Set

Italian celebrity magazine Oggi may have created the world’s most tasteless cross-promo ever when it included a package of four kitchen knives and a pizza-cutter with its latest issue — one that featured Amanda Knox on the cover.

Knox, as you’ll recall, was recently released from an Italian prison after her 2007 murder conviction for slashing her former roommate to death was overturned.

Prosecutors in the case have accused Oggi of being unfairly biased towards Knox during the court proceedings, saying the magazine was part of “the million-dollar PR machine that her family hired.”

One newsstand vendor said she was “shocked” by the knife giveaway, but added, “Having said that, we did sell out of all the ones we got.”
