Go Sherri!! I'm so happy she's taking action. Too many people hide behind their computer screens and say sick / disgusting things and get away with it. I think people who harass others online are miserable within their own lives... sad but true!
I'm not sure what sparked this disgusting tweet, but reportedly it was a Lil Kim fan who tweeted Sherri the following message:
Somebody should drag u in a back alley and rape youThat tweet is beyond disrespectful. Sherri is somebody mom, and she's positive and doesn't deserve that... No woman does.
Personally i'm tied of people hiding behind a fake screen name... it's to a point where they need to make it so anyone who comments online has to reveal their real identity. I bet that would cut back on a lot of the negativity.
People only talk crazy when their identity is hidden. Here's what Sherri had to say (via necolebitchie)
WHO DO I REPORT THIS TWEET TO? THIS IS A THREAT & I’M PISSED. This online bullying nonsense has got to stop… I need Twitter to step up. For someone to say I need to be raped… Really? You think I should be raped in a back alley? Let’s see if the police agree with you. I took a pic of your tweet. I’M FILING A POLICE REPORT. SO TELL ME NOW WHAT SHOULD BE DONE WITH ME. Just talked to the police about [username omitted] …the laws should be changed for folks that bully – no consequences & the bullying continues. I am going 2 file a police report 4 U threatening me. And so help me God, when I find out where U live, charges will follow. I’m tired of folk thinking they can hide behind a celeb Avi & type anything they want to you w/o consequences b/c they can’t be seen COWARDS. I’m not a little 19 year old… I’m a grown a– woman… seriously you want to threaten me? I’m on my way to the police. This type of bullying is one of the reasons children are killing themselves b/c there’s no consequences for the bully(s). Those who follow me you may want to turn me off cuz’ I’m about to tweet all [User's Name]‘s followers … I’m looking for him/her.
We cannot let this bullying of our children continue… we have got to stand up to bullies – even online bullies. No one is stealing my joy; however I’m very angry that cowards masquerading as big talkers get to let loose online. On my way to the police station… will let you know what they say when I get back
Just returned from filing a police report for this online harrassment nonsense. I will be pursuing this legally. The police said @Twitter has to be subpoenaed for release of [username omitted] information.Thanks for the support everyone. Bullying has gotten out of hand & it’s breaking my heart that kids are out here having to deal with it. I retweeted the tweets and threats to bring attention to the seriousness of cyber bullies. There [should] be laws that demand consequences. I will not sit back and ignore these COWARDS – this type of online bullying goes on unchecked @Twitter what are you doing about it? How does a kid deal with the constant bullying assaults & it not affect their mindset? These are the kinds of tweets they get- how do we help?
