'Idol' loser found fame in failure
LOS ANGELES, -- A botched "American Idol" audition has turn-
ed William Hung into an anti-celebrity with Web sites, fan
club and a Top 10 radio hit in his honor. Hung, who was rude-
ly dismissed by the "American Idol" judges during his Chinese-
inflected performance of "She Bang" by Ricky Martin, is the
latest in a surprising by-product of reality shows, the anti-
celebrity, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday. Ken Warwick,
the executive producer of "American Idol," who coined the
phrase, said the making of anti-celebrities is becoming fre-
quent. "Bless him, William will be inundated with offers,"
Warwick said. Indeed, three Web sites about Hung went up in
the days following the Jan. 27 airing of his audition, with
one generating 4 million hits in four days, causing a temp-
orary shut down of the site. Chicago's WKSC-FM has played a
remix of Hung's performance that has made it into the
station's Top 10 request list. The attention has bewildered
the 21-year-old University of California at Berkeley civil
engineering major. "There is fame and there is infamy," said
Hung, who moved to California from China when he was 11. "I
don't know if this is bad or good."
