Tila Tequila hasn’t really been talked about since people still used MySpace, but on Tuesday Twitter couldn’t get enough of chatting about the former social media celebrity, who was famous only for having a lot of Internet “friends” and looking good half-naked. But a Photoshopped picture of Tila standing in front of Auschwitz wearing an S.S. cap and red swastika armband ignited the Internet.
The D-list starlet, who once appeared on an MTV reality show, “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila," (which got canceled) has announced that while she is not an anti-Semite, she is a Nazi sympathizer. In a blog post, she wrote extensively about how, in essence, Adolf Hitler was a good man who just wanted to rescue Germany from economic hardship, that the genocide he ordered was just side effect of war and that he was only made to look like a “monster” because the Axis lost World War II.
“I am not going to sit here and say that I hate Jewish people because that is not the case nor is this about Jews,” Tila wrote. "Here is a man who was not a coward, stood up for his country in a DESPERATE TIME OF NEED … he lost the war AND was painted out to be a monster after his death.”
Right. If anyone wasn’t sure why anyone would ever have something to say about her, this is why. In case anyone reading this article isn’t sure, Hitler ordered the murder of 12 million people. Six million of those were killed for being Jewish. He’s not exactly someone that should be idolized and his title of “monster” barely begins to explain the type of depraved individual he was -- but back to Tila and Twitter.
Hilariously, many Twitter users didn’t even know who Tila was and why she was trending, which isn’t surprisingly since Facebook overtook MySpace in the late 2000s, which was pretty much the end to her “career.”
Few people seemed to be genuinely offended by Tila’s outlandish blog post. Instead, they just took the opportunity to ridicule the 32-year-old Singapore native. Others seemed to be convinced she was mentally ill. Check out some Twitterati posts below:
