They went on Twitter and fabricated all of these Retweets from a number of celebrities like Justin Bieber, Pee Wee Herman, Jimmy Fallon, Andy Dick and Kanye West about their forthcoming DVD and how everyone should buy it. Shame fucking less. So, guess what happened? Some of those celebs found out and they’re fucking pissed. It’s rumored that Kanye West is the one who sued the guys or had the aforementioned cease-and-desist order.
The celebrities whose Tweets they faked have taken legal action, according to the band’s real Tweets. Some of the fake Tweets were “RT @AndyDick i did the Jimmy Kimmel show w/ @evereytimeidie in 08, they’re cracking me up, get their dvd” and “RT @JimmyFallon @everytimeidie this is brilliant, you guys need to come play my show to promote your new dvd!” This is what you do when no one will actually say anything nice about your “funny” DVD. Hey dudes — stick to the music, and leave the comedy to the pros.
Yesterday, the band Twitted that “It took 7 days for seize [Edit: Hahahahaha] and desist papers to show up,” but they did. Now the band’s being all mum about the Retweets, saying only that they’re “glad so many people enjoyed our fake Tweets but we can’t comment further on the legal troubles its caused, stay posi[tive]!”
Apparently, confessing that the Tweets were faked has not silenced the celebrity lawyers. Every Time I Die’s guitarist Jordan Buckley posted his reaction online; seems he’s not too thrilled: “Walked around an Austrian mall. came back to the venue and found out my band’s getting taken to court. awesome. all because of twitter. cool.” I guess this is the kind of publicity you couldn’t buy, but these dudes are starting to become annoying. Like a chick who thinks she’s funny when she’s not and just keeps yapping and trying to make you laugh when all you wanna do is fuck.
