18 Year Old Re-Tweeted By Eva Longoria, Has To Spend Next Day Apologizing

Eva Longoria – who is a Democrat – retweeted a tweet from one of her 4.5 million twitter followers. This is what it said:

imnotyuri eva longoria twitter

Okay, that seems like something you would say to a friend. This 18 year old is probably mistaken in thinking that Eva Longoria is a close personal friend she should speak freely about her political opinions with. Imnotyuri: movie stars are not your friends, not really. That is especially true when those movie stars big role was in Over Her Dead Body. I mean, really.

Needless to say, a lot of Eva’s followers are Republicans who do not follow Eva for political reasons (they are huge fans of ghost romances). They jumped on Imnotyuri. Eva distanced herself by taking down the retweet and remarking:

I use Twitter as a platform for all Americans and their opinions. Sorry if people were offended by retweet. Obviously not my words or my personal view. I respect all Americans #FreedomOfSpeech

Well, that’s great, but it did still mean that an 18 year old spent hours desperately apologizing to seemingly every Republican on Twitter. Imnotyuri tweeted:

imyuri eva longoria twitter

I’m not sure who the real jerk is here. On one hand, Imnotyuri is foolish. On the other hand, Eva Longoria is foolish for not realizing how many people this message would reach. On the third, invisible hand, it kind of seems like Republican-ghost-movie-fans are assholes for ganging up on an 18 year old.

In conclusion, let’s all go back to MySpace, or possibly smoke signals.

    It seems to me that maybe this is an ultimate lesson to the 18 year old. When you tweet to a celebrity with millions of followers, you have to realize there’s a chance that a lot of people are going to see it, right? #lessonsintwitter

    Romney is misogynistic but also a twat? He may be against women’s rights, but she doesn’t help by using another word for vagina in a less than supportive way.

    I would be a proud tweet mama if I tweeted that and Eva Longoria retweeted it. Fuck the crazy conservatives, I would take pride in their angry tweets at me. Just sayin’. Don’t say something if you can’t stand behind what you said.
