Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) lawsuit against two Twitter troll accounts has now massively backfired, as one of the accounts has just blown past the California Republican’s total follower count.
As of this writing, the “Devin Nunes Cow” account had an estimated 406,000 followers, while Nunes’ official account had an estimated 395,000.
Andy Lassner, an executive producer at the “Ellen Show” who started the campaign to get the Nunes Cow account more followers, celebrated his achievement by taking shots at Nines and calling him a “pathetic putz.”
“WE DID IT!!” he crowed. “The cow that Devin Nunes is suing officially has more twitter followers than he does!! Devin Nunes’ epic self own is now complete. Congratulations Devin Cow! Thank you for reminding us all what a colossally pathetic putz Devin Nunes is.”

In a lawsuit filed earlier this week, Nunes alleged that Twitter was systematically “censoring” conservatives, while also claiming that two Twitter accounts designed to mock him — “@DevinNunesMom” and “@DevinCow” — had caused him “extreme pain and suffering.”
The lawsuit has drawn heaps of ridicule, as even some Fox News legal analysts have admitted that it has no chance of being successful in court.
