Creepy Porn Lawyer Speaks with BLP After Twitter Lockdown

Monday night, Michael Avenatti found himself in the media spotlight once again, claiming that he was representing a client who would become the third woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

But Tuesday morning the shady barrister for pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels, aptly nicknamed the “Creepy Porn Lawyer,” locked his Twitter account, sparking a heap of internet speculation.

Rumors swirled that he had been duped by 4chan users, and that his alleged client was just an anonymous troll – a wild rumor indeed.

Big League Politics reached out to Avenatti to clear the record, and he confirmed first to us that a 4chan gag was not the reason for locking his account.

“Complete nonsense,” he said via email. “Never happened. None of it is true.”

BLP followed up, asking Avenatti if he still planned on coming forward with his alleged accuser. He declined to comment.

A screenshot of an Avenatti Tweet reveals his explanation for the lockdown.

“I was just forced to make my account private because the bots and Trump trolls are out in full force due to my representation re[garding] Kavanaugh,” he claimed. “I will change this back as soon as I am able.”

The silence from the normally-boisterous attorney has been deafening.

He defended his Twitter lockdown to friendly reporters at POLITICO, and called the speculations that he had been duped “crazy.”

“This is just crazy that somebody can just tweet something out like this, or post it, and people just take it as truth,” he said. “It’s crazy.”

He still insists that he is representing a Kavanaugh accuser.

“I’ve been really clear. The timetable has not changed,” he said. “We haven’t moved the timetable back. Nothing’s changed. We don’t just do this at the drop of the hat. Had we waited until everything was in place to surface these allegations, then everyone would be complaining that we just dropped this on the committee at the last moment. There’s no winning in this situation. We wanted to surface the allegations for the committee, reasonably, once they were vetted, which is what we did.”
