Woods tweeted a screenshot of Avenatti being interviewed during the London protest that featured a “Baby Trump” blimp, calling the Stormy Daniels (aka Stephanie Clifford) lawyer “the real diapered, hot air balloon.”
Avenatti caught wind of Woods’ tweet and warned the actor that he has already been contacted by women who have described their own “#MeToo” stories involving Woods.
“You know what I love? Everytime you pop off about me, one or two more women contact my ofc and describe your harassment/assault of them and #MeToo issues, seeking representation,” the lawyer tweeted to the actor.
Avenatti then proceeded to threaten the actor that if he continued to take personal jabs, then he will “be next” in the slew of Hollywood men who have been the subject of #MeToo stories including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. “Keep playing games and you will be next. I promise.”
Has Been Jimbo: You know what I love? Every time you pop off about me, one or two more women contact my ofc and describe your harassment/assault of them and #MeToo issues, seeking representation. Keep playing games and you will be next. I promise. #Basta

Woods has been vocal about his support for President Donald Trump, who is being sued by Avenatti on behalf of his client Daniels. Earlier this month, Woods revealed that he has been dropped by his agent, he claimed, because of his hardcore political views. The actor made the announcement via Twitter by showing an email he received from his agent, Ken Kaplan. “It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic,” Kaplan, who is with the Gersh Agency, wrote. “I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I can go on a rant but you know what I’d say.”
Along with the photo of the email, James wrote, “So this email from my agent (a political liberal) today.”
Meanwhile, Avenatti has expressed interest in running against Trump in the 2020 presidential election if the president sought reelection. “IF (big) [Trump] seeks re-election, I will run, but only if I think that there is no other candidate in the race that has a REAL chance at beating him,” Avenatti tweeted. “We can’t relive 2016. I love this country, our values and our people too much to sit by while they are destroyed.”
Woods did not immediately respond to The Hollywood Reporter’s request for comment.
