So, this whole Susan Shannon thing was over. She lost, phenomenally, a crushing court case where the jury said, in no uncertain terms, that she was a deliberate liar and that they did not believe anything she said, did, or accused. The jury awarded her accused $8 million. This is not actually going to happen. I think the final judgement will be capped at something far lower, because that is the law (torts are capped). The jury awarded a LOT more as a message. The message was “You’re a terrible human being and we despise everything you stand for”. The verdict was unanimous. They unanimously decided Ms. Shannon was a terrible human being. They unanimously decided that Ms. Shannon lied. They awarded a massive amount because they unanimously decided Ms. Shannon was a liar.
And I assumed she would disappear. Most people would. Most people would worry about their family. Most people would try to figure out how to pay the sum, to balance debt load and life, to pay for children’s student loans. But not Susan Shannon.
Now she is going to sue Facebook, because it was Facebook’s fault she lost her lawsuit. Seriously. There is a parody website about her alter-ego, the “Short Little Rebel” and this parody website “may have contributed to my loss in court.” She goes on…
If any of those jurors went home and googled ‘short little rebel’, they would have seen the fake Short Little Rebel Facebook page instead of my real FB site. They would have clicked on it, thinking it must be mine. And they would have seen the banal stupidity of it, the hate on it and the slurs on it toward all kinds of people. They may have felt that the fake SLR FB site was mine. And if they did, they would have believed that I said all those crazy, hateful things against homosexuals, black americans, arab americans, etc. That was one of my worst fears as I went to court. That someone would look me up even if they weren’t supposed to and see the fake site. The jury wasn’t sequestered.
Naturally. After all, Susan Shannon has not been banal off Facebook. It is not like they might have found her actual SLR website and thought she was batcrap crazy. It is not like she has not been stupid off Facebook. She has not been hateful off Facebook. She has not been homophobic off Facebook. She has not been racist off Facebook.
But…She has. This is the problem. She has a terrible reputation online, based entirely on people interacting with her online.
This is sweet little “Christian” Susan Shannon. I swear I thought this was her talking to a gay guy, but I am not sure. She later says…
“You DO buttfuck, so you are a buttfucker. I am a minority here because most people would say I was being rude & unfair- but… my minority status doesn’t give you the right to persecute me. So, I am absolutely FREE to call you a gerbil packer. Do you understand now? you limp wristed panty waste coward?”
I think this is homophobia…but honestly I am not sure, given the “twat” comment. Generally that derogatory term has referred to women, so there is some ambiguity.
But…yeah, it must have been FB…?
What is online about Susan Shannon, and I mean that seriously…? If you Google her, what do you find? Bile, anger, hate, venom, and more. She is all over the internet, and generally has conflicts with almost everyone, everywhere.
Her neighbors all hate her and want her to move?
Her kids’ school has banned her?
Her ex-Pastor thinks she is a conspiracy theorist and a little nuts?
She no longer speaks to her sister because her sister had some uncomfortable questions for her….(one of these things is not like the others).
Or any other thing. Nothing she has said online, a vast copious amount of information that does not need anything from FB. If the Jurors did Google her, she might have poisoned the well just fine by herself.
But, naturally, she has to sue…
I am forced to take legal action against FB and the owners of that page- which is very difficult considering the financial straits my husband and I have been in with this other case I have been in. I wish I could have afforded to do so before my trial. And my accuser’s attorney blurted out in trial that I had a bad reputation online before my attorney could object- dirty pool, huh? With all the fine comb investigations their team did on me, he knew full well that the fake SLR site would pop up as one of the first results if a juror googled me. What if a juror found it hard to resist looking while they were at home? But the world isn’t fair, is it?
Here’s the problem. There IS a parody Short Little Rebel FB page, but SLR is not a trademark. The website said it was a parody, I believe, and it is relatively insignificant compared to her own website, which she says she could make millions off, if allowed to by “God” which she is not (she can’t, it’s empty bluster, but she likes to lie, so….). Anyone and everyone can create a fake SLR website. They can even use pictures of her, provided she posted them publicly. If she posts pictures publicly, and she LOVES attention so she does…
“When you publish content or information using the Public setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of Facebook, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).” and “By “use” we mean use, run, copy, publicly perform or display, distribute, modify, translate, and create derivative works of.”
So fake SLR website….? Legal
Fake pictures…..? Legal
More legal fees for the Shannon family in a losing court case…..? Legal
SERIOUSLY….her husband should commit her, there is something very, very, very wrong with her. At this point it is not even funny anymore. She is really hurting herself and her family in ways that demand intervention. Someone should step in.
I don’t think it will happen.
