These days, people can write just about ANYTHING they want on social networking sites, and now, The View’s Sherri Shepherd is taking a stand and refusing to back down!
Yesterday, Sherri took to Twitter to retweet some downright threatening messages she had received…all from some cowards hiding behind their computers!
One of the disturbing tweets from user @DaCloneKiller read:
"Somebody should drag [Shepherd] in a back alley and rape [her]."
How disgusting…AND scary!!!
Sherri, rightfully shaken up about the threats, responded:
"I am going 2 file a police report 4U threatening me. And so help me God, when I find out where U live, charges will follow”
Not only is she speaking out on behalf of herself, but for other bullying victims as well, adding:
“This type of bullying is one of the reasons children are killing themselves b/c there's no consequences for the bully(s)."
And gurl is NOT joking about taking action…she recently met with police in NYC in efforts to file charges against the Twit-bullies!
Though the popo told Shepherd the case would be “difficult” to pursue, she’s NOT backing down against the cyber harassment.
"Online bullying needs 2 stop @Twitter-children are dying b/c they don't know how to combat cowards like @DaCloneKiller."
We applaud Sherri for holding her ground and speaking out on such a major issue that's affecting today's society.
Bullying — cyber bullying included — should NOT be tolerated!!!
We support you, gurl! Now go bring down those bullies!
