Miley Cyrus doesn’t want
a tweeter TheCyrusSlut to get away with posting death threats on her wall and nor should she. Sure, Twitter is supposed to be a forum for open exchange but that doesn’t give someone the right to threaten a life as easily as they would wish a friend happy birthday.
The 19-year-old singer and actress received the threats as she was headed to the 20th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party on Sunday. The hateful tweets have since been deleted but Miley’s backlash is still posted: “U have nothing better 2 do than hate? That saddens me. Im surrounded by love Im sorry 4 whatever happened 2 make u so bitter,” Miley wrote. “I won’t tolerate someone telling me 2 die. I think Twitter needs to take some responsibility and make it a safe environment!”
Loving or hating Miley is your thing but online bullying — especially threatening a life — is something else completely. Celebrities reluctantly accept a lot of criticism from haters but defending their life is not part of their qualifications.
Where do you draw the line with celebrities? Do you think accepting hateful comments is just “part of the job?”
The 46-year-old man that claimed God told him he needed to kill young starlet Selena Gomez, plead not guilty in a recent court appearance.
CBS News says his bail is set at $150,000, and if he is convicted he faces up to three years in prison. The judge upgraded Thomas Brodnicki’s restraining order to three years. The man is not allowed to contact or go anywhere near Selena or her family. If he does, he will go straight to jail, will not pass GO or collect $200.
Brodnicki – who TMZ says has a history of criminal stalking the famous – is scheduled for another court appearance on November 16. Let’s hope God tells him to show up on time.
Rapper Lil B has been receiving death threats after naming his upcoming album ‘I’m Gay,’ reports Perez Hilton.
“People been hitting me up like, ‘I’m gonna bash your head in,’ ‘you f—-t,’ ‘I’m gonna kill you,’” said Lil B. “I got major love for the gay and lesbian community, and I just want to push less separation and that’s why I’m doing it. I hope GLAAD sees that I’m taking initial steps to break barriers.”
According to Lil B, in the album title he’s referring to himself as “gay” meaning “happy,” and he insists that the title choice is not a gimmick or publicity stunt.
The album will released on iTunes within a month or so, and Lil B won’t be changing the album’s title.
It’s sad that people are still so closed-minded in this day and age. He’s obviously doing something to make a point, yes, but for people to react this way is just so, so sad. Is an album name really going to affect you that much? Will your life really be eternally changed for the worse because some people are gay?
I don’t get the logic, but props to B for taking a stance on it. It’s not often you see members of the hip-hop community be so open and accepting of the LGBT community, so I think it’s a good step forward.
Selena Gomez is absolutely terrified of Justin Bieber fans after receiving so many death threats from the jealous mob of preteens! Perez Hilton reports that the Biebs has tried to soothe his girlfriend but she’s still worried for her safety.
Bieber, you’re king of twitter! A public tweet condemning fans that threaten other people’s lives would probably do the trick!
Selena’s newest single, “Who Says,” is supposedly in retaliation to all the ‘haters’ the Disney star has had the misfortune of recently acquiring.
Go Selena! Fight off those haters and ride on a white horse into the sunset with the Biebs by your side!
