Twitter, Not Afraid to Stand Up to Satan's Vagina, Nikki Finke, Suspends Her Account

This is all kinds of inside baseball, so if you don't care a thing about Satan's Vagina, Nikki Finke (who runs Deadline), don't bother with the post. I also won't recount Nikki Finke's lengthy history of being a horrible, awful, mean and nasty woman, except to point you toward a few recent developments likely responsible for the suspension of Finke's Twitter account.

Besides being an all around evil woman, Finke also recently threatened to destroy Bret Easton Ellis after Ellis revealed that she lived in the same building as him. Basically, she told Ellis' agents that, if they didn't fire him, she would reveal the addresses and schools of all the agents' family members. Ellis, in turn, got himself a lawyer.

Finke is also embroiled in a frivolous lawsuit with The Hollywood Reporter, over on Vulture, Gavin Polone attempted to elicit a lawsuit from Finke by revealing some of her bullying tactics, and most recently, a fake Nikki Finke Twitter account sprung up in the wake of Finke's insensitive comments about the movie theater shooting in Colorado.

Finke blew a gasket about the parody account. She began threatening the people responsible for the fake account. The result? As of this moment, both the parody Nikki Finke account and, inexplicably, the real Nikki Finke account have been suspended. Why? My guess is that Twitter just got tired of dealing with Finke and/or just assumed hers was a fake account, too. I mean, no one in real life is that terrible of a person, right? Right?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I had no idea who the hell Nikki Finke was before today. Now that I know who she is and how she apparently acts, I'm going to go right back to having no idea who the hell Nikki Finke is. Probably the best way to deal with her really.

    Twitter account is back up. Womp womp

    Worse than Nancy Grace?


  • Jerce

    Although there are people who have done viler deeds than Nancy Grace, no person who ever existed is actually a worse person than Nancy Grace.

    Hitler, Stalin, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Kim Jong Il, ....

    Yeah, there are "people" this awful in real life.

  • Jezzer

    I hate to sound the False Equivalency Alarm this early in the comments, but really? I think a more accurate comparison would be Louella Parsons and Hedda Hopper.

  • Maguita NYC

    It was in response to the writer's last sentence. Because if I wanted to throw in equivalently nasty contemporary female characters, I would have started with Ann Coulter...

  • Jezzer

    You are still comparing someone who committed genocide to someone who was really rude and unpleasant to deal with. How do you not see this as a problem?

  • W

    Lenin, Mao, Guevara, John Edwards, Jane Fonda,...
    You're right

    You guys, be nice to Nikki Finke. It's not easy when Bret Easton Ellis burns the secret location of your proto-Dalek installation, where you've been physically grafted onto a computer of some kind (the eventual movie will portray it as a Mac, natch, but I expect the flexibility in coding required demands something less draconian, if not a wholly original construction) so as to fulfill your mission of exterminating what tiny sliver of civility might still exist in Hollywood and make a real-life Hunger Games-- and our eventual wholesale demise as both a culture and a species-- possible within the decade.

    Or at least, I feel that's the only explanation for such a reaction, and for why she seems to have only one photograph that for all we know is just the stock photo from a Walmart picture frame.

    I always imagined Satan's vagina to be really awesome. You know - beautiful, great-smelling, tasty, and probably hypnotic. Something to draw you in and make you want to sell you soul.

    I mean, no one in real life is that terrible of a person, right? Right?

    I feel with work I could become that terrible, except per last week's "nobody can tell you're a dog" post, I don't actually exist.
