John Cusack ‘Satanic Death’ Tweet Misinterpreted!

September 6, 2010

The John Cusacksatanic death’ tweet published by the actor Sunday evening has landed the popular 80’s actor in the sights media giant FOX networks. Misinterpreted as calling for the death of Newt Gingrich and House Majority Leader Dick Army, the tweet actually was just a sarcastic argument against a ground zero mosque. Get the full story, with pictures and video below!

Long an outspoken advocate of the Democratic Party, the actor publicly supported Barrack Obama in the elections. Now, his latest tweet is being used by conservative media as an example of Democratic pundits inciting violence. Read it below and see what you make of it.


The tweet was apparently a sarcastic response to questions by fans as to whether he supports a mosque being built near Ground Zero. While immature, he certainly doesn’t call for anyone’s murder. Responding to the John Cusack ‘satanic death cult’ tweet, FOX gave the impression the actor was calling for the demonic murder of the GOP head figures. Calling in experts, they claimed that the actors words could unintentionally incite violence from an unstable follower.

“His provocative tweets could easily incite a rabid fan to commit violent acts against Fox News Headquarters and others he names,” said Dr. Carole Lieberman, a Beverly Hills-based psychiatrist. “Fans could not only be influenced because of their devotion to Cusack, the man, but also because of their love for one of the characters he plays,” she told Fox411.

The off-color comments by the actor, while misinterpreted, could still cost the 44-year-old some fans, and just at the wrong time for his upcoming movie. The actor has been recruited to play Edgar Allen Poe in a new mystery thriller “The Raven,” ironically, a movie where a devoted Poe reader misinterprets his poems and goes on a killing spree. The bad press from his flippant remark may cost him some revenue in the box office. It just goes to show you don’t attack a media network without feeling some repercussions.

    I imagine you’d characterize Cusack’s *other* lengthy rants in rags like the Huffington Post, going on about GOP “human scum,” as misinterpretations as well?

    Stop trying to defend Cusack’s lack of maturity and judgement… He’s ill-informed, ill-mannered, and considering his accumulation of wealth, the biggest “hippocrate” of the lot… (that’s Cusack’s spelling — almost as begging as his political acumen).

    Nothing immature about his comment. He equates Fox News with a Satanic Death Cult. Pretty nifty, I’d say. What should really be of concern is the deliberate misinterpretations of his words. And to the genius who thinks good spelling denotes intelligence, check out the subbing nightmares publishing houses go through before printing established authors. They would all be morons by your equation.
