Extremely harsh back-and-forth with tweets between Gaia Zorzi, sister of the influencer Tommaso, and Amanda Knox, the American student accused and later acquitted for the murder of Meredith Kercher. The latter on Twitter compared her trial experience in Italy to a “study vacation”.
In 2007 Amanda Knox began her judicial journey, while in 2015 the Court of Cassation declared her acquitted. We talked about her again when someone on Twitter asked to tell a horror story in five words. The former student from Perugia on Erasmus replied: “Unforgettable study holiday in Italy”.
The indignation immediately mounted on the social network of the twitter. Among the many critics especially Gaia Zorzi (fresh from coming out as bisexual), who wrote:
“Every year you tweet shit like this, trying to be funny (and let’s not forget you’ve also published a book, a podcast and a documentary). It’s sad to see how the highlight of your life was being accused of murder “.
Amanda Knox retorted:
“I tweet a lot of things, especially about criminal justice reform, but you only notice it when a joke goes viral. This is prejudice. The vast majority of my time I dedicate myself to a serious defense. I don’t apologize for occasionally finding humor in my unfair sentence ”.
And here is Gaia Zorzi’s rejoinder:
“I think that every year you feel the need to tweet a joke to feel important because otherwise people would forget about you, as we did with Raffaele Sollecito”.
The American also responded to this provocation:
“It must be terrible to be so full of anger and resentment towards a person you’ve never met. I hope you can one day find compassion and empathy. There was nothing provocative about that tweet. You’re importing the provocation into your reading by confusing the injustice that happened to me with the injustice that happened to Meredith “.
