Be careful what you say on Twitter. Courtney Love just made history with a lawsuit brought against her for insults she made on Twitter. Courtney chose to settle the dispute and it cost her $430,000 in payments spread over four years. The battle started with Courtney NOT paying for $4000 worth of clothing she purchased from NY designer Dawn Simorangkir. (Courtney is in the habit of stiffing designers and stylists.) The designer demanded her money and Courtney tweeted a tirade of insults, describing Dawn with words such as “asswipe, nasty lying hosebag and thief.” The designer’s defamation suit resulted in the hefty settlement that might instill caution in all of us.
