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!
"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!
