ABC has a Twitter scandal on its hands that centers on the Kerry Washington-starring show Scandal. A popular, yet controversial fan Twitter account has been revealed to be an ABC sales executive.
The @Scandal411 account and a fan site with the same name is run by Courtney Pajor, a sales executive for the network based in New York, according to sources for TheWrap. “I am 100 percent sure that Scandal411 is Courtney Pajor,” a person who has interacted with the blogger told the site.
The site also notes that it has documents that link Pajor to the account, provided by another anonymous source.
@Scandal411 no longer exists and scandal411.com is now blocked as a private site. Pajor did change her handle to @GrantForPresident after TheWrap began its investigation, but that account is now inactive as well.
Fans of Scandal have believed that Pajor went out of her way to be nasty to anyone who didn’t hold the show in as high regard as she did. When Washington lost the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama, she allegedly wrote “F**k you” to the Television Academy. She also complained when TheWrap published an interview with Washington, in which the star talked about the direction of the show.
“We are currently investigating the matter and will take swift and appropriate action when the investigation is complete. ABC neither accepts nor condones this type of behavior,” ABC said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly.
Scandal is one of the most popular shows on social media and airs on Thursdays at 10 p.m.
