Julia Mejia, a Boston City Councilor, filed claims of defamation and IIED (Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress) against Turtleboy over two articles that Turtleboy wrote. The first article was published in February 2021 and accused Mejia of exploiting a murder for her own publicity, which included live-streaming the dead body and interfering with the crime scene. The second article, published in December 2021, claimed that Mejia was involved in a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) incident.
Mejia’s claims of defamation and IIED are based on the contents of these articles, which she believes are false and caused her emotional distress.
