First Twitter Libel Suit?
According to a libel claim lodged by [fashion designer Dawn] Simorangkir in Los Angeles Superior Court last Thursday, the widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain has carried out “an obsessive and delusional crusade” of malicious libel against her on Twitter, adding insult on MySpace and other websites.
The designer, who lives in Austin, Texas, also claims that numerous tweets posted by Love on Twitter accuse her of being a “nasty, lying, hosebag thief”; having “a history of dealing cocaine”; having “lost all custody of her child”; and, being guilty of “assault and burglary”. The singer adds that the designer would be “hunted til your [sic] dead”.
Twitter, the progress of human civilization right before our very eyes.
