    Better be careful what you post on social media. It can bite you on the ass.

    James Woods is taking a Twitter user to court — for a whopping $10 million.

    The Oscar nominee is suing a person who goes by the Twitter handle @AbeListed for defamation, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

    Woods, 68, went to Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday to file a suit against the anonymous tweeter, known as “Abe List,” for a tweet in which he called the actor a “cocaine addict.”

    The publication reports that the message in question was tweeted by “Abe List” on July 15, in response to Woods’ tweet about media priorities.

    “@RealJamesWoods @benshapiro cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting,” the tweet stated.

    Woods’ legal complaint said that the tweet “stepped over the line.”

    As for the allegation itself, Woods stated that he "is not now, nor has ever been, a cocaine addict, and AL had no reason to believe otherwise.

    “Rather, AL's outrageous claim is the culmination of a malicious on-line campaign by AL to discredit and damage Woods' reputation, a campaign which began as early as December 2014."

    The “White House Down” star is pursuing legal action against his online nemesis because the tweet was sent to "thousands of AL's followers and hundreds of thousands of Mr. Woods' followers."

    Woods also stated that he was targeted in "a campaign of childish name-calling," and has been maligned by tweets that called him a "prick," “scum” and “clown-boy.”

    The actor contends that "AL's reckless and malicious behavior, through the worldwide reach of the internet, has now jeopardized Woods' good name."

    As for the defendant, he has since deleted the @abelisted Twitter account, which prior to being taken down had 2,274 followers.

    According to his Twitter bio, “Abe List” is based in Los Angeles and is a self-described “math dork in finance and partner in (private) equity.”

    “Freedom is not needing to be liked,” he says in his bio.

    THR notes that Woods did not state in his lawsuit whether or not he attempted to “block” the user from following him on Twitter, or if he ever filled out a form to report the alleged abuse.

    to me it seems like james woods is the bully here, using his money and fame to try and ruin some little guy for being a little mouthy. but no way is he going to be able to prove 10 mil in damages for a tweet by some guy no one heard about until woods sent his legal goons after him.

    James Woods had this big thing with very crazy actress Sean Young..Allegedly they were very heavy into cocaine. He had an affair with her while doing a flick. Then dumped her and they both did majorly f'd up things to each other. It was a whole thing Robin..

    Going after some twitter guy, grow up…I mean who would do such things?? Howard…going after garypuppet and not my bro…whining in media, basically threatening them…James Woods is an arrogant greasy haired bully, Howard is an arrogant poof wig wearing manorexic bully…Get off twitter you old coot wimps!!

    If Beefarino came after everyone in the Shed she could ditch the Wig with the money she could make off our posts here .

    Then again she would have to prove the stuff we post is not true first. Good luck with that .

    James Wood,
    I used to think you were cool.
    Now I think you're a bit of an insecure puss puss.
    One cancels out the other, so you're now a NULL

    Two can play at that game. Stephen hawking is a liberal. Celebrity political views are a lot like their bowel movements. No one wants to hear about them.

    I think that was The Boost, in which he very convincingly played a cocaine addict.

    Not really, when I was a member of Mensa most the members were liberals. I personally am a moderate and don't like most politicians from the left or right. The biggest idiots of all are partisan hacks who bash the other parties members while turning a blind eye toward their own parties misdeeds
