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?
