Here's a recipe for New York tabloid heaven: the words "model," "whore," and "lawsuit." Oh, and internet cyberbullying. Deja vu from a case last year? Yeah, but Carla Franklin's lawsuit takes it to the next level: the anonymous YouTube commenter.
Model Liskula Cohen has confronted the woman revealed as the author of a hate-blog directed against her. Cohen told the woman that she forgave her, but the blogger did not apologize — probably because a defamation suit is pending. [P6]
They said it would never happen, but a judge ordered that Google reveal Liskula Cohen's anonymous online tormentor. The model sued Google to find out who was behind a hate-blog about her, in order to file a defamation suit. [NYPost]
Look, we wouldn't fancy being called "Horsey Face," "ho," "skank bitch," "#1 skanky superstar," "old hag," and "psychotic, lying, whoring, still going to clubs at her age, skank," either. But grounds for a lawsuit?
