'The Delautering': The Internet takedown of Kirby Delauter continues

Kirby Delauter — the county councilman who must not be named — from Frederick, Md., made a huge splash on social media. Maybe “splat” would be a more accurate word. Delauter became a national laughingstock yesterday after threatening legal action against a Frederick News Post reporter for mentioning his name in an article without his permission. It started with a blog post, but when the story went viral on Twitter, Delauter even earned his own hashtag.


Today after the Frederick News Post responded with an editorial “Kirby Delauter, Kirby Delauter, Kirby Delauter” he became a trending topic and the story was even reported by NPR and the BBC.

Henceforth, failing spectacularly on social media should be called “Delautering.”






Delauter has even earned his own Twitter parody account.


Any word from the real Kirby Delauter though?
