"The X Factor" judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger got a cold shoulder from fellow judge Simon Cowell Thursday when they eliminated 14-year-old Drew Ryniewicz. But that couldn't compare with the subsequent flame war they endured from the singer's many online fans, who posted violent insults on the two women's Twitter and Facebook pages. "[Y]ou voted off the most talented person on your ---- show. i hope you die . . . ," said one. "ou two deserve all the hate. You both made a selfish decision and should be ashamed of yourselves!!" said another, according to TMZ.com and Britain's Daily Mail. The offensive posts were removed shortly afterward.
