Turns out Scout Willis' scandalous Tweets about adderall, cigarettes and capitalism were all just part of a school project!
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's 20-year-old daughter, who is a student at Brown University, began writing graphic messages via her Twitter account, @bougepunk, which included such messages as, "I hate capitalism like I hate my parents, but they both serve me so well."
A blog called IvyGate.com took notice of the Tweets, and called her out on the comments, saying, "Scout has shared some insanely graphic accounts of her personal life. Why worry about school? Just take an adderall, make lists, smoke too many cigarettes and voila, panic attacks and straight A's here I come."
It wasn't long before Scout's parents were flooded with phone calls, and she was forced to shut down the page on Thursday.
A rep for Wills released a statement on her behalf, explaining:
- "In connection with a class assignment, in which students were asked to create a 'culture jam' or 'hoax,' three students created a satirical and fabricated Twitter account in which everything tweeted was fictional. This was done to illustrate how social media is utilized and that in today's social media culture, you can create a significant twitter following based entirely on fabricated lies, and that the more outrageous and controversial the fabricated statement, the more followers you will get."
The statement concludes: "Current media interest in the fabricated Twitter school assignment appears to prove that point."
