Actress and University of Kentucky super fan Ashley Judd is threatening to press charges against Twitter users for sending crude messages her way during Sunday’s SEC Tournament championship game.
Judd says that people need to take responsibility for what they write, and that she is pressing charges against these Twitter trolls.
“The way things happen on social media is so abusive,” she said in a clip that aired on NBC’s “Today” on Tuesday. “Everyone needs to take personal responsibility for what they write and not allowing this misinterpretation and shaming culture on social media to persist. And by the way, I’m pressing charges.”
When when I express a stout opinion during #MarchMadness I am called a whore, c—, threatened with sexual violence. Not okay.
