So despite the fact that Courtney Love has more or less abandoned her old Twitter account, which was really just a bunch of pictures of her naked with a turtle on her head, Courtney just settled out of court to the tune of $430,000 after posting libel about someone on her Twitter account.
Rocker Courtney Love has settled the lawsuit brought against her by a fashion designer who claims she was defamed in a series of messages posted on Twitter. The settlement with Dawn Simorangkir (aka the “Boudior Queen”), which sources say is being finalized today and will be announced next week, will cost Love about $430,000. The first payment of cash is due today, followed by a series of payments to Simorangkir stretched out until 2014. SOURCE
All right, so, today’s double standard: Violent, insane drug-addict Charlie Sheen uses Twitter to bash people, becomes a fucking Internet hero. Violent, insane drug-addict Courtney Love uses Twitter to bash people, gets sued for nearly half a million dollars. I’m not saying either of them is right here, I’m just saying you people need to use a little consistency!
