Reality star Tila Tequila reportedly aligns herself with Nazis
Tila Tequila, the former star of a MTV dating reality show, has extended her 15 minutes of fame with a disturbing post on Facebook in which she wears Nazi imagery and praises Adolf Hitler.
The pint-size Asian model has allegedly rechristened herself “Hitila” (merging her name with Hitler’s) and rants about how the infamous dictator was misunderstood.
In a blog post entitled “Why I Sympathize With Hitler Part 1: True History Unveiled,” Tequlia writes:
“Here is a man who was not a coward,” Spake Tequila, “stood up for his country in a DESPERATE TIME OF NEED (unlike all of our cowardly leaders), and yet not only did he try his best to help his country and people get out of what was a time of depression, economic collapse, high unemployment, amongst many other things… he lost the war AND was painted out to be a monster after his death. This is what breaks my heart.”
Tequila has since lashed out at critics of her post online using Anti-Semetic rhetoric. This new pro-Nazi stance has surprised many observers since she claimed to have converted to Judaism just last year.
Adding insult to injury, the poorly photo-shopped picture features the World War II concentration camp Auschwitz as a backdrop.
The gambit may be paying off for Tequila in the short term — her post has made her a trending topic on Twitter, as have her claims that Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker was “ritualistically murdered.”
