Threatening A Journalist with Quentin Tarantino's Oscar

Year: 1995

What happened? Lynn Hirschberg was a journalist responsible for a story in Vanity Fair that claimed Courtney Love had used heroin while pregnant. Courtney had openly expressed how pissed off she was about this article, which she maintained was false. When she finally came face-to-face with Hirschberg at an Oscars after party, she didn't hold back. She grabbed the nearest thing around and attacked. The nearest thing around happened to be Quentin Terrantino's Oscar.
