WASILLA -- Colony High School principal Cyd Duffin doesn't do MySpace.
So other people had to tell Duffin last October that a fake MySpace page appeared in her name -- a page depicting the principal as a drug-using racist with a sexually transmitted disease who insults disabled students and likes books about pornography, anarchy and the Ku Klux Klan.
Among the tipsters: a local guy who originally wanted a date -- the fake profile identified the married 52-year-old Duffin as single -- but ultimately called the school because something about the page didn't seem right.
Last month, Duffin filed a civil lawsuit for defamation and invasion of privacy in Los Angeles County Superior Court against MySpace Inc. plus others responsible for the page whose names she doesn't yet know.
She said the personal stuff made her sick, but it was the insults against students that motivated the suit.
"Really the issue that was distressing for me was the portrayal of Colony High School as not being a place that embraces and respects and cherishes our student minorities and our students with disabilities," Duffin said. "Go ahead and hit me, but don't hit my kids."
