Jessica Alba Pays for Screwing with United Way

6/18/2009 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They're calling it a donation ... we're calling it payback -- either way, Jessica Alba just forked over a whole lotta cash to the United Way in the hopes of making everybody forget the night she vandalized the charity's billboard with shark posters.

Jessica Alba

Moments ago, a rep for the United Way of Central Oklahoma announced Alba made a donation of more than $500 -- but refused to identify the exact amount per Alba's wishes.

As you may recall, Alba went on a late night tear last week, defacing all sorts of objects with posters promoting great white shark awareness .... in Oklahoma ... where there is no ocean.

Wow. Big Whoop. Don't tell me that a big star like she is couldn't have afforded a little more dough! $500 is nothing for what she did.

hahahaha!    

Sounds like everyone made out for the better over this little ordeal ... the great white shark issue was in the news, the United Way got some face time and a donation, Jessica was in the news for something other than scowling at the paps and kids learned it is a crime to put up posters with glue no matter how good a cause you think you are standing up for... not seeing anything negative from this bit of drama. LOL

What about the stage center, a venue for the performing arts, where she completely plastered a prominent area of utilities? or the historic Bricktown area where she pasted posters on a bridge? This "actress" decided to practice her "activism" in an historc arts disctrict... I'm sure arts venues have lots of cash laying around to clean up her messes. She should have been charged like anyone else.

LMAO! Well please make way for this year's Miss Generosity! Give her a Wal-mart crown and a paper certificate detailing the whole "lotta cash" she donated.

They must really think highly of her. *rolls eyes*

It says MORE THAN $500! So she didn't give five hundred she gave more than that, they just won't specify the number.

Now it could be 550 dollars, or it could be 5,000. But I'm not sure why that many of you missed the words more than.

I live in Oklahoma City and you can't imagine the local furor this has caused. It really is a tempest in a teapot. However about them sharks . . . us Okies are all for it cause they make purty boots!

To be fair, a place without an ocean probably is the least aware of sharks. ;)

It may have said "more than $500", but that doesn't mean it was much more than that. She may have requested the amount be kept a secret, but she's a celebrity- she's vain enough that if she donated over $1000, she would want that out there. Then it would be "more than $1000".

who gives a shit    

Guess she stayed out of jail because she made a donation-if we defaced property I am sure we would be in jail, anyone see something wrong with this picture? And over $500, hope it was $5 or $10 thousand at the very least. She can afford it!
