Ashley Judd going after internet trolls
Ashley Judd is taking a stand against internet trolls after she was barraged by hateful, vulgar and threatening messages on Twitter.
The actress says she is going to press charges against people who have been harassing her on Twitter with threats of sexual violence.
It follows a tweet she wrote over the weekend about a basketball game. Judd said, “When I express a stout opinion during March Madness I am called a whore, c—, threatened with sexual violence,” Judd tweeted. “Not okay.”
Though she tells Today that she doesn’t expect anything to come of the police reports, she still wants to send a message by filing them.
“The amount of gender violence I experience is absolutely extraordinary,” she tells the Today show, “and a significant part of my day today will be spent filing police reports at home about gender violence that’s directed at me on social media.”
