You know who is the most unstable, murderous group of people you never want to piss off? Teenage girls. I swear to God, I think like 90% of the angry emails I get are from teenage girls who don’t understand that stretching the truth until it becomes laughable and ridiculous is how a joke works. Unfortunately, teenage girls also don’t understand that threatening to kill someone or telling them that they hope they die constitutes a death threat. So of course, when teenage girl fave Drew Ryniewicz was (admittedly, unfairly) eliminated from The X Factor, guess how well that went over? Here’s a big ol’ hint from TMZ:
According to our sources, [Paula Abdul] and [Nicole Scherzinger] both got the cold shoulder from Simon Cowell after the show … who was “furious” with their decision. But that’s nothing compared to the abusive tweets and Facebook messages they’ve received. Some of the messages read:
— “F**K you paula you dumb c**t you voted off the most talented person on your f**king show. i hope you die you DUMB B***H.”
— “I hope you die, you selfish———-”
— “@NicoleScherzy @paulaabdul go die”
Look, I went ahead and watched clips of Drew, obviously she’s a talented young lady with a career ahead of her. That being said, I don’t care how talented the people you like are, you cannot tell someone that you want them to die. Really can’t emphasize this enough. I mean yes, they’re both rich and powerful ladies, and I don’t think these comments will really do them any lasting damage, but you need to learn this right now: you can’t tell people you hope they die, because doing so makes you a terrible human being.
