Johnny Gill’s Twitter Rant Lands Him In The Hot Seat!

The Hollywood Reporter’s legal blogger Eriq Gardner posted a piece yesterday suggesting a record company’s defamation lawsuit against Johnny Gill over his recent Twitter rant may become a test case for how comments online will be treated by the courts from now on.

As previously reported, Notifi Records CEO Ira DeWitt sued the former New Edition singer last week for defamation on Twitter. According to the lawsuit, @RealJohnnyGill accused DeWitt of hiring another singer to finish vocals on his song and then creating a fake Twitter page to leak the unfinished single. Gill claimed his record deal gave him authority over which songs were released as singles.

Further, the singer is alleged to have attacked the reputation of DeWitt and her company by saying on Twitter that she was “deranged” and “f**king nuts,” that Notifi was a fake company, and that she had a “hard on” for the song’s producer.

The comments are claimed to be defamatory because they “charge DeWitt with criminal, improper and immoral conduct.”

Eriq Gardner writes in the Hollywood Reporter…

Does the lawsuit have legs? Let’s hope so. Many of the issues involving defamation on Twitter still have yet to be fully guided and fleshed out by judges.

Earlier this year, we reported on a fashion designer’s lawsuit against Courtney Love and noted that the trial was expected to explore such issues as whether the average Twitter user would interpret vicious tweets as facts or opinions, as well as how to calculate damages in such disputes.

Before it got to trial, Love paid $430,000 to settle, and other cases involving defamation on Twitter have similarly been resolved. For example, last March, a British politician paid nearly $5,000 to make a lawsuit alleging tweet-defamation against a rival go away.
