Ever since prosecutors in San Diego decided not to pursue criminal charges against Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman for allegedly battering and falsely imprisoning Tila Tequila Nguyen on September 6, we’ve checked in from time to time on Nguyen’s Twitter page.
Predictably, she has been sounding off repeatedly about the decision, “retweeting” messages from many of her followers that either support her or bash Merriman.
But Nguyen is adding plenty of her own words, apparently not realizing that each tweet is something that Merriman’s lawyers possibly will use against her if she files a civil suit and if the case goes to trial.
Here’s one that should help Merriman’s legal team make Nguyen come off as incredibly unsympathetic: “Actually @MechanicalDummy & @shawnemerriman should ass rape each other. They are both little pussy bitches. I would B ashamed 2 be their mom.”
(The Mechanical Dummy link goes to the Twitter page of a person named “Breezy.” We’ve never heard of “Breezy,” but at least 33,917 others have.)
That’s just one of the more recent tweets from her. She’s currently in the middle of an all-out tirade, which will give Merriman’s lawyers even more ammo as they prepare to defend him at trial.
And she apparently senses that her stream of tweets could come back to haunt her. At one point in the past couple of hours, she said that she’ll be deleting her Twitter account in a “couple more weeks.”
Unless it’s an Ochocinco-style stunt, the only reason to delete the account (which inexplicably has nearly 250,000 followers, though we think the number has dropped recently, likely due to the excessive and rampant tweeting about Merriman) would be to try to cover up the things she has said over the past several days — things that will make it much harder for her to prevail in a civil suit against Merriman.
