Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger found out the hard way that their X Factor: USA votes matter more to some than they thought. Abdul and Scherzinger received a slew of death threats after they decided to axe Drew Ryniewicz on last week's elimination show. Strangely enough, Astro's fans have remained silent about his departure; probably due to the fact there's a major rumor floating around about Astro being signed by Jay-Z.
TMZ reports that following the Thursday night elimination, Drew's fans bombarded Paula and Nicole's Twitter accounts with menacing tweets. There's a right way and a wrong way to go about voicing your thoughts and this was definitely a wrong way. Disagreements happen but death threats? Really?
Some of the horrid tweets said such things as, "@NicoleScherzy @paulaabdul go die" and even, "F*** you paula you dumb c*** you voted off the most talented person on your f***ing show. i hope you die you DUMB B****."
Whatever happened to civility? The Internet has effectively created a shroud for every coward who can type to unleash any tirade that pops into their itty bitty brain. Sticks and stones may break your bones but words and threats can get you locked up! Remember to think before you type.
