“View” co-host Sherri Shepherd isn’t taking any chances after receiving disturbing messages on Twitter Wednesday night that threatened her with rape.
The TV personality filed a police report and is pursuing charges against the social media stalker, notes TV Guide.
The Twitter trouble began when @DaCloneKiller Tweeted Shepherd this message: “Somebody should drag u in a back alley and rape you.”
Shepherd then re-tweeted the deranged post saying, “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,” Shepherd continued. “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.”
Following through with her own threat, Shepherd notified the authorities. “Just returned from filing a police report for this online harassment nonsense. I will be pursuing this legally.”
The menacing Tweeter persisted into Thursday, continuing with a string of obscenity-filled posts, including one that thanked all the followers “that are supportin me wit this @SherriEShepherd fiasco. F*T B**CH AINT GOT NO MANNERS.”
Shepherd has been vocal about her stance against bullying and also commented: “This type of bullying is one of the reasons children are killing themselves b/c there’s no consequences for the bully(s).”
