There's only one word for this sort of thing: KLASSY

1. Little blonde girl disappears. This is a terrible tragedy, of course, but because the girl is white and has a family with resources, everyone in the world is expected to care.

2. Some months later, a vacationing Spanish tourist spots an Arab-looking couple toting around a little blonde girl who bears a passing resemblance to the famous victim. He snaps a photograph and alerts the media.

3. The press completely flip their shit and immediately begin speculating that the girl has been kidnapped by nefarious Berbers. Al-Q'aeda terror scheme? Sure, why not?

4. Representatives of European media track down couple and begin harrying them. They are taken into custody and questioned by police for many hours.

5. Whoops! It turns out that the little blonde girl is their daughter. The press, having learned the shocking news that North African Muslims are sometimes blonde, wanders off to find new monster lurking under bed.
