The best part of this totally reasonable, well-constructed, not-at-all droolingly, gibberingly insane article about John Cusack’s Sunday night Twitter rampage? The kicker. Copywriter Jo Piazza sets it up by explaining, using the expert testimony of expert experts, how the expression of such celebrity opinions could induce a violent response from a fragile public still obsessed with Say Anything and in need of a hug. (“‘His provocative tweets could easily incite a rabid fan to commit violent acts against Fox News Headquarters and others he names,’ said Dr. Carole Lieberman, a Beverly Hills-based psychiatrist.”) Anyway, kicker:
“Ironically, Cusack has just been signed to play Edgar Allen Poe in ‘The Raven’, a movie about a serial killer who uses Poe’s stories as inspiration for his killing spree.
Cusack’s publicist did not reply to calls and emails for comment.”
