Each week, ABC’s hit series Scandal draws in a huge numbers of viewers who watch and tweet along as the presidential drama unfolds. In turn, a top fan blogger known only as Scandal411 has amassed a huge following and is a top source for all things Scandal.
Now, the anonymous source has officially been unmasked and you won’t believe who’s behind it!
Courtney Pajor, a sales director at ABC, is the person behind Scandal411 and the network is not happy about her leaking show secrets.
“I am 100 percent sure that Scandal411 is Courtney Pajor,” one individual told The Wrap. The source claims to have had multiple interactions with the blogger.
The Twitter account has accumulated 26,000 followers since it was started. It is also linked to a website, Scandal411.com.
Since coming under fire, the account’s name has changed, according to The Wrap. It is now GrantForPrez. The linked website has been made private by its owner, and Pajor has not responded to attempts to reach out to her since investigations began.
ABC issued the following statement:
“We take these allegations very seriously. We are investigating the situation and will handle accordingly.”
Both fellow show bloggers and fans have agreed that the account has crossed the line multiple times during interactions with fans and journalists. The accusations range from incidents like calling fans “crazy” to more serious offenses, such as cursing at people.
Leaking information isn’t the only thing Pajor has allegedly done from the account. She is accused of using her internal connections to limit blogger and fan access to the show and to the show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo.
