Sherri Shepherd threatened with rape on Twitter

Sherri Shepherd is outraged over a tweet she recently received, and plans on pressing charges.

According to Gossip Cop, The View co-host was harassed by a Twitter user who said, “somebody should drag you into a back alley and rape you.”

Shepherd immediately fired back at the user who goes by the name “DaCloneKiller,” saying “who do I report this tweet to? This is a threat & I’m pissed.”

“I am going 2 file a police report 4U threatening me,” she wrote. “And so help me God, when I find out where U live, charges will follow.”

She later tweeted that she filed a police report for online harassment and would be pursuing the matter legally.

Upon returning from the police station, she tweeted that the police said Twitter would have to be subpoenaed for the release of DaCloneKiller’s information.
