Some Guy Made The BIggest Mistake A Twitter Troll Can Make By Threatening Chris Paul's Wife In Too Much Detail
TMZ- The LAPD is on the hunt for the social media scumbag who threatened to kill Chris Paul's wife, Jada, on Twitter ... TMZ Sports has learned.
It's all over a tweet sent to Paul on March 14th which read: "@CP3 if I knew where you lived I'd probably kill your wife and frame you for it. I watch dateline I get away with it."
Clippers security saw the tweet and notified the LAPD which launched an investigation to track down the person behind the threat ... but so far, no arrests have been made.
It's just the latest online issue for Paul -- who had already contacted cops about an Instagram troll who's been harassing him and his wife for more than a year.
According to official docs, Paul claims the troll never threatened physical harm -- but was on a campaign of cyber-humiliation by posting "annoying comments" on family pics.
Paul points out one example from Oct. '14 when the troll referred to Jada as "Jay Leno chin."
And there you have it, the biggest problem with Twitter trolls. They simply can't rest until they outdo themselves. This guy's persistence is what's ultimately responsible for the cops that are currently on his tail. Not only did he get himself in legal trouble, but his undying desire to be more outrageous turned Chris Paul into a true victim. It's all good when you are referring to the wife of an athlete as an exaggerated body part of a former 'Tonight Show' host, but when you venture into the unfolding of murder plots from a popular, reality based crime show then you have simply gone into far too much detail. Think about it this way, when Chris Paul was calling the police over a Jay Leno joke he was overreacting. When you threaten homicide against one of his immediate family members, and forewarn that you'll conspire to frame it on him then you are the bad guy. I don't support a person's right to badger professional athletes and their family members online, but I do understand that it happens quite often. Often enough - in fact - that people have no choice but to ignore most of it. This kid's biggest mistake was feeling the need to stand out from the rest of his hobby-less peers that have nothing better to do than annoy Chris Paul on the internet, and he fucked around and made the threat too real. You can never make the threat too real.
