Objection! The defendant is clearly trolling!

James woods, actor from many things I've never seen, is suing someone on Twitter for calling him a "cocaine addict." According to The Hollywood Reporter, the defamation lawsuit is for $10 million. Um, do you know how many bot followers you could buy with that?

Woods is accusing the defendant, Mr. @abelisted, of "reckless and malicious behavior" for a since-deleted tweet that said, "cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting." Definitely rude. But according to Gawker, it was in reply to an equally awful tweet from Woods himself that disrespects transgender people and spreads misinformation about Planned Parenthood.

Congratulations to everyone on being your best self!

I hate to play into tired stereotypes, but could old guys understand the Internet any less? If we're entitled to millions of dollars when people say mean, incorrect stuff about us on the Internet, then women should be in for a niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice pay day.
