14 Year Old Netherlands Girl Arrested for Being a Complete Dumbf**k.
How much are those Twitter followers really worth?
A 14-year-old girl from the Netherlands was arrested on Monday after tweeting a terror threat to American Airlines and marveling at the Twitter followers that she attracted because of it.
"Hello my name's Ibrahim and I'm from Afghanistan. I'm part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I'm gonna do something really big bye," she tweeted to @AmericanAir on Sunday, using a Twitter account mostly dedicated to the American pop star Demi Lovato. The airline responded that it "takes these threats seriously" and would report her tweet and IP address — not information the airline would actually have access to — to the FBI.
The girl then fired off a series of tweets in her defense: "omfg I was kidding." "I'm just stupid okay." and "Omg I gained 3k followers today." However, it appears airline wasn't impressed.
Rotterdam police confirmed on Monday that the girl had been arrested. The teen, whose name is "Sarah," later tweeted that she needed some legal representation. "I need a lawyer. Any lawyers on here?" she asked on Sunday, hours before the arrest.
I just hope this girl becomes the poster girl for "shit NOT to do" for the rest of the idiot teenagers out there. Not all, but quite a few.
