Courtney Love has the dubious honor of being the first celebrity sued for defamation on Twitter. New York designer Dawn Simorangkir demanded payment for a few thousand dollars worth of clothing that Courtney owed her and Love took to Twitter and blasted the designer with a tirade of appalling insults. The comments spread quickly among her fans. Among other things, she called the designer a drug-pushing prostitute with a history of assault and battery. The resulting lawsuit heads to court this month and it will set a Twitter precedent. We know that Courtney is in the habit of taking clothes and services from people and refusing to pay because she “is a celebrity and it’s free publicity for them.” Let’s see if she can weasel out of this one.
