If An Actor Sues Someone From Twitter For Calling Him A Cocaine Addict Then He Is Probably A Cocaine Addict
Sky News- Actor James Woods has been given permission to attempt to unmask and sue a Twitter user who called him a cocaine addict. He is seeking $10m worth of damages in a case which revolves around a single offending tweet.
The original complaint was filed in July, and calls Abe List a "cowardly individual" who conducted a "malicious online campaign" to discredit the actor.
"AL's reckless and malicious behaviour, through the worldwide reach of the internet, has now jeopardised Woods's good name and reputation on an international scale."
The spat began when Mr Woods posted on Twitter about a row between Bruce Jenner and Planned Parenthood.
He wrote: "USATODAY app features Bruce Jenner's latest dress selection but makes zero mention of Planned Parenthood baby parts market."
Abe List replied: "Cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting."
He also referred to Mr Woods as a "joke" and "a ridiculous scum clown-boy".
Lisa Bloom, a lawyer representing Abe List, said "suggestions that Mr Woods was on drugs was not meant to be taken literally".
Well, James Woods MIGHT walk away from this trial with the entire net worth of a random outspoken Twitter user, but he's DEFINITELY walking away from this trial as a cokehead. Sorry, but if a celebrity gets so defensive over one tweet on a platform that is predicated upon insulting celebrities then he clearly has something to hide. I mean, it would be one thing if he was a stick-in-the-mud that clearly couldn't take a joke, but his cameo in 'Scary Movie 2' proves he's got quite the tolerance for crappy humor. You're telling me a guy that starred as himself in 'Family Guy' can't brush off a frivolous narcotics allegation? Fucking 68 year old James Wood just banging out more lines than he did as a morally bankrupt team doctor in 'Any Given Sunday'. This can't be the first insulting tweet an actor of over 40 fucking years has gotten on Twitter. It's just the first one that has struck a chord with his personal life. Hey, if James Woods wants to spend the twilight of his career blowing 'ye more than Kim Kardashian than have at it, but I don't think he needs to ruin some internet loser's life in the process. Especially since the reason he's so mad is because this "malicious online campaign" is at least partially rooted in truth. I mean, he pretty clearly doesn't have a problem with accusations of drug use when they aren't true...
