Totally Anonymous Soccer Player Sues Twitter For Saying Ryan Giggs Had An AffairS

Some married British soccer player had an affair with a model, and we guessed it was Ryan Giggs. But the media couldn't reveal his name because of a court order. So someone signed up for Twitter and started naming names, including that of Ryan Giggs. But we still don't know for certain that Ryan Giggs had an affair, because the newspapers are still barred from reporting that Ryan Giggs had an affair.

Today a soccer player, who may or may not be Ryan Giggs (we have no idea!), filed a lawsuit against Twitter, because one of its users reported that Ryan Giggs had an affair. Why this footballer would be suing, we have no idea, unless they're upset that it was reported that Ryan Giggs had an affair. And for them to have a legal basis for the suit, the Tweeted information must be from the injuncted documents. So when someone says that Ryan Giggs had an affair, Ryan Giggs would have had to have an affair for this unnamed footballer (maybe Ryan Giggs) to bring a suit in the first place.

It's unclear how our reporting of others' reporting that Ryan Giggs had an affair fits in here. As an American site writing that Ryan Giggs had an affair, we're probably not subject to British media law. But even so, we're not saying that we've discovered that Ryan Giggs had an affair: only that some people are saying that Ryan Giggs had an affair, and that one Twitter user says Ryan Giggs had an affair, and that some soccer player is suing over people saying that Ryan Giggs had an affair.

At press time, Ryan Giggs had not returned our request for comment.
