ABC is investigating accusations that a network employee is the person behind a popular, sometimes-polarizing Scandal fan Twitter account and blog.
“We are currently investigating the matter and will take swift and appropriate action when the investigation is complete. ABC neither accepts nor condones this type of behavior,” the network said in a statement.
According to The Wrap, the Twitter account (formerly called @Scandal411) was run by ABC’s New York-based director of sales before being deleted this week. Prior to this week, the account was the Twitter home of one of the fandom’s most vocal bloggers, who was known for Tweeting the latest news on the show and occasionally using inflammatory language while interacting with fans.
