Reality TV "star" Tila Tequila has set the Internet and Facebook aflame. In a series of Facebook posts starting over the weekend and continue to a Monday response to criticism, Tequila made statements including compassion for Adolf Hitler, and claiming that the deaths of Elisa Lam and Paul Walker were both "ritualistic murders."
Last weekend, Tequila wrote:
I know who killed Elisa Lam. The Mysterious Video of the Girl in Elevator who ended up 'mysteriously dead' at the bottom of a closed off water tank. I believe I am the only person on this entire planet who knows what happened. I knew it the first time news of the strange video started circulating the internet weeks ago. I have just kept my mouth shut because there is a lot more to it and of course ... cases like this ... I just did not want to draw any attention to myself but I know exactly why they did it and yes it was indeed a ritualistic murder. Just like Paul Walker's.
However, for Lam's case I have so much detail that it may blow your mind," she continued. "I know it blew my mind and that's why I was debating on [whether] or not I should blog about it as I did not want to have anything to do with it ... except for the fact that this ritual murder was directly linked to my ritual murder last year ... So ... kinda makes it hard for me to talk about, but ...
Lam was the 21-year-old Canadian woman who was found dead in the rooftop water tank of the Los Angeles' Cecil Hotel in February. Walker, on the other hand, a star of the multibillion-dollar “Fast and Furious” movie series, died in a car crash on Nov. 30, along with the driver, his friend, Roger Rodas.
Meanwhile, Tequila has recently posted a series of pro-Hitler statements on Facebook. She wrote:
Once upon a time in a land far away there was a special and sweet kid who had a dream to become a painter. He was a brilliant artist and was ahead of his time. He had hopes, and dreams just like we all do.
Unfortunately, the art schools did not feel the same as he and they rejected him. Fast forward a few years later he was roughed up and bullied on top of that by the same people he once loved. His Name was Hitler.
In response to a harsh online response, Tequila wrote the following -- again, on Facebook -- on Monday, Dec. 9:
I never said I hated anyone, but just because I fee sympathy, compassion, and forgiveness for others such as Hitler means I am now a monster? All for trying to open your eyes to the truth that Hitler was NOT as bad as he was painted out to be?
Tequila also posted a since-deleted (but seen above) image of herself in Nazi garb, superimposed on an image of Auschwitz.
