I feel like “Ashley Judd fights back” is also the way you could describe the plot of 97% of the movies on Ashley Judd’s IMDB page. But Ashley Judd is fighting back for real this time! Clear your schedule, Tommy Lee Jones, you might be needed. During an upcoming interview for Weekend Today, Ashley Judd confessed that she was recently the victim of online Twitter trolls and she’s getting the police involved, because nobody fucks with Ashley Judd.
Ashley says it all started last weekend when she was live tweeting a Kentucky Wildcats game. Ashley took a swipe at the Arkansas Razorbacks by tweeting (and later deleting) “I think Arkansas is playing dirty”. That apparently was enough to piss off some Arkansas fans, who then responded by tweeting violent threats at her:
Usually when someone starts tweeting word garbage at you, you hit the block button and report the mouth breather, and move on. But not Ashley Judd. Ashley told both Today’s Craig Melvin and MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts that she’s pressing charges against everyone who tweeted hate towards her. Ashley says:
“The amount of gender violence that I experience is absolutely extraordinary. And a significant part of my day today will be spent filing police reports at home about gender violence directed at me on social media.”
NBC also says that some of the Tweets directed at Ashley Judd were “so vulgar”, they couldn’t show them on television. Rude! Don’t they realize how repulsed their mothers would be if they ever discovered they were hissing vulgarities at one of the Ya-Ya Sisterhoods?
I’m sure that most of you are thinking “Bitch, even super-sleuth Jessica Fletcher wouldn’t be able to find out who is behind those anonymous untraceable Twitter troll accounts,” but if anyone can track them down, it’s Double Jeopardy’s Libby Parsons. Or Missing’s Becca Winstone. Or Ashley Judd. Or maybe she could just ask aspiring PI Wynonna Judd for some help, since she’s proven in the past that she’s got a thing for tracking people down.
