But a Twitter follower took things a little too far when “DaCloneKiller” wrote, “somebody should drag u in a back alley and rape you.”
She promptly responded with, “THIS IS A THREAT & I’M PISSED.”
Shepherd took immediate action and took a picture of the post and filed a police report.
“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.”
She also took the platform to talk about bullies using social media to make threats and terrorize people without consequences.
But even after her monologue, she received more expletive-laden messages from strangers.
It didn’t deter her decision to go to the police.
“Just returned from filing a police report for this online harassment nonsense,” she tweeted a few hours later. “I will be pursuing this legally.”
