The Joy FM Twitter handle while posting the development put their post in quotes, suggesting that she had actually said those words.
The post which got Juliet Ibrahim angry replied with some harsh words threatening a lawsuit.
“I thought you were a reputable station? Did I grant you any interview and you are quoting me with a made up headline? If this article isn’t taken down in seconds my lawyer will contact you! Unprofessionalism at its peak!”
The warning, she added, was not only limited to Joy FM but all other outlets who had quoted her in relation to that story.
In what turned out to be a Twitter rant, Juliet Ibrahim posted a series of tweets to express her displeasure at what she described as the habit of the Ghanaian media to publish fake stories which in turn ruin the brands and images of celebrities.
“Every unprofessional blog or radio station that is carrying a quoted publication about me today claiming I insulted someone or called someone an animal, do yourself a favor and delete that post/article ASAP! My lawyer is on standby to handle the rest! This is a warning!!! ”
She continued; “Defamation of character is an offense punishable by Law! Don’t mess with the wrong celebrity. This is a warning to the unprofessional media who feels they can publish any nonsense about me. Don’t step on the wrong toes”.
