Tila Tequila, the pint-sized model who rose to fame by being the most popular chick on Myspace (according to page views) circa 2006, is now apparently a Nazi sympathizer and goes by the name "Hitila." Tequila's "Shot at Love With Tila Tequila" reality show was canceled in 2008.
A photoshopped picture of Tila standing in front of Auschwitz wearing an SS cap and a red swastika on her arm can be seen on Jezebel. It apparently appeared on her Facebook page, but seems to have been since taken down.
Tequila, who was born Tila Nguyen in Singapore in 1981, combined her name “Tila” with Hitler and came up with “Hitila.” She wrote on her Facebook page Monday:
“I am She, the Queen who hath come to save you from this dark world filled with NWO parasite invaders,” which seems to be a reference to the “New World Order,” which is popular among conspiracy theorists.
In a blog post on Saturday, she attempted to defend herself and tried to explain her choice to randomly align herself with the Axis side from World War II. Tila insinuates Hitler’s story wasn’t fully told and that history was rewritten when he lost the war.
In what seems to be the first of many posts, her first title read: "Why I Sympathize With Hitler Part 1: True History Unveiled.”
“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,” Tequila wrote. “It is about Hitler and his side of the story that was never told since he was not the victor. However, those of you with a closed mind can think I am being anti-semite all you want because I already told you that I am not, nor will I repeat myself again.”
She then went on to explain why she suddenly is a Nazi sympathizer. "Here is a man who was not a coward, stood up for his country in a DESPERATE TIME OF NEED (unlike all of our cowardly leaders), and yet not only did he try his best to help his country and people get out of what was a time of depression, economic collapse, high unemployment, amongst many other things… he lost the war AND was painted out to be a monster after his death.”
Tila's Nazi revelation comes more than a year after she reportedly tried to commit suicide. According to TMZ, her roomate told cops at the time she tried to kill herself all week. Sources said she was found unconscious and reportedly needed psychiatric help.
