Incensed by the on the home of a Northridge friend's middle-school daughter, comedian Jon Lovitz has launched a Twitter assault of his own.
And the mother of one of the suspects might face criminal charges.
In an interview with Kristine Lazar of KCBS2, Lovitz said he posted a photo of the three teen suspects making an obscene gesture to the camera on his Twitter account. The girls have not been publicly identified by police.
The Jewish Journal first reported the dumped feces, and scrawled swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs written in maple syrup at one Northridge home, and the toilet-papering of another house a half-mile away.
Police told Chatsworth Patch that all the girls attend the same Northridge middle school.
KCBS2 said the girls admitted involvement. They have been questioned with their parents by Devonshire Division police. LAPD Capt. Kris Pitcher said the prank did not rise to the level of a hate crime because no permanent damage was done to the properties.
"This is the worst thing you can do -- to terrorize a family -- outside of actually harming them physically," Lovitz said.
KCBS2's Lazar reported that "Investigators are now looking into whether the mother of one of the middle-school girls who admitted to the so-called prank could face criminal charges for driving the girls to the house in the middle of the night."
"What's the difference between what they did and if someone drove their children to an African-American neighborhood and burned a cross on the lawn?" Lovitz asked.
