Sherri Shepherd Responds to Rape Threat on Twitter, Files Police Report
Sherri Shepherd. You go, girl!
The View co-host has taken action against a total loon on Twitter, actually filing a police report over an exchange that featured some maniac threatening to rape the actress.
The Tweet took place last night, with @DaCloneKiller writing to Shepherd: “Somebody should drag u in a back alley and rape you.”
Shepherd re-Tweeted and added: “THIS IS A THREAT & I’M PISSED… You think I should be raped in a back alley? Let’s see if the police agree w you & I took a pic of your tweet. 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.”
Shepherd proceeded to stand by her word, posting again last night:
“Just returned from filing a police report for this online harassment nonsense. I will be pursuing this legally… This type of bullying is one of the reasons children are killing themselves b/c there’s no consequences for the bully(s).”
In a word: AMEN, Sherri Shepherd!
