Anderson Silva files defamation claim against disrespectful Twitter fan

If you are thinking of sending any ill-worded messages towards a fighter via social media for whatever reason, you better cross former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva off of your hit list.

Apparently “The Spider” is a little more than sensitive in regards to being disrespected by fans, especially if it’s on twitter. As the MMA legend has apparently filed a police report against a Brazilian woman who tweeted some less than favorable comments regarding the former champ (via a report from

According to the chief of police in Pinhais, Marcelo Magalhaes, the UFC star felt offended when a woman called him “rotten” on Twitter.

“We’re still investigating to get her name, address and phone,” Magalhaes told Globo. “It’s a 40-year-old woman who wrote on the internet, in a social media, several phrases, including ‘Brazil will see the idol and rotten that you are’.”

In an interview with a local radio station, Magalhaes said that the woman also called Silva a “Shitty Idol.”

The process is expected to go to court next. The penalty for this type of crime in Brazil is up to six months in jail, or a fine.

I’m not going to say anything about Anderson’s actions myself, as I don’t want to be receiving any phone calls from Brazilian police. But, I will say that I personally find this to be rather ridiculous. What do you think Penn Nation, is Anderson possibly overreacting just a little?

    First of all I’m almost 100% positive this is a fake story. Anderson was a champ for a long time and with fame come a lot of haters and fans so those who write retarded comments like jorge rocha ^ are just idiots. Its ok, the world is full of em, and Anderson knows it too and hate comments are to be expected. He makes shitload of money and right now he has got his injury and family on his mind, not some bullshit twitter fan
