Spittle-flecked avatar of nutjob conspiracy theories and overall has-been James Woods took a Twitter user, "Abe Doe," to court for saying Woods did cocaine. The user was anonymous but was a known troll/comedian. Woods demanded he be outed and punished. As happens in life, that Twitter user died. Woods interpreted this as a personal victory, and insulted the Twitter user's lawyer for good measure.

Even when given the chance to feign ignorance, Woods declined.

When given the chance to show he wasn't a pale shadow of a real human being, Woods declined.

He also accidentally tagged Lisa Loeb and then tried to parlay it into a date.

Never mind that Woods has done exactly what he sued a random sick man for doing.


It just goes to show: you can be totally clean drug-wise and still be an unparalleled pile of filth in the humanity department. It's a shame James Woods doesn't do cocaine. At least then he might have an excuse. As for Abe Doe (who ran the @abelisted account), check out this post by First Amendment lawyer Ken White (aka @Popehat) about what it was like to help defend him from Woods:

Beneath Abe's acerbic wit was a passion about issues and people, a dogged sense of right and wrong, and a contempt for bullies. We agreed about very little, but I grew to look forward to our exchanges and became quite fond of him. Combined with the fact that he was in the right and the case against him was contemptible thuggery, that made representing him a pleasure.
