Sherri Shepherd Presses Charges After Twitter Threat

We understand Twitter slander, but this is too far.

Actress Sherri Shepherd is pursuing charges against a Twitter user who threatened her with rape Wednesday night. The View co-host received a tweet from @DaCloneKiller, who wrote, “Somebody should drag u in a back alley and rape you.”

Shepherd re-tweeted the post, adding, “THIS IS A THREAT & I’M PISSED.” The actress then took further steps to combat the harassment. “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,” she tweeted. “I am going 2 file a police report 4U threatening me,” Shepherd continued. And so help me God, when I find out where U live, charges will follow.”

Shepherd apparently stayed true to her word. “Just returned from filing a police report for this online harassment nonsense. I will be pursuing this legally,” the actress wrote Wednesday night.

The actress also used the moment to continue her stand against online bullying. She tweeted: “This type of bullying is one of the reasons children are killing themselves b/c there’s no consequences for the bully(s).”

Yeah, buddy definitely took things too far. We get the joking but there comes a point where you gotta chill. SMH
