James Wood is suing a Twitter user for $10 million for calling him a 'cocaine addict'

July 31, 2015 

Twitter trouble. James Woods is suing a Twitter user for defamation after the user suggested the actor is a "cocaine addict."

The Hollywood Reporter posted that Woods has filed a $10 million defamation suit at the L.A. Superior Court against the anonymous user.

Woods’ complaint claimed that the user's "reckless and malicious behavior, through the worldwide reach of the internet, has now jeopardized Woods' good name and reputation on an international scale” and that the user "and anyone else using social media to propagate lies and do harm, should take note. They are not impervious to the law."

The user Abe List’s tweet in question was in response to a July 15 tweet and read: “@RealJamesWoods @benshapiro cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting.” The account has since been removed from Twitter.

Woods’ complaint argues that the Twitter user behind the handle Abe List “stepped over the line” and that Woods “is not now, nor has ever been, a cocaine addict, and AL had no reason to believe otherwise, rather AL's outrageous claim is the culmination of a malicious online campaign by AL to discredit and damage Woods' reputation, a campaign which began as early as December 2014."
