Laci Green is a popular youtuber. http://www.youtube.com/user/lacigreen?feature=results_main
Laci Green gives no-nonsense sex advice that people can actually use.
Laci Green had to contact the police today, because some people didn’t agree with her opinions, made death threats, and posted pictures of her apartment to show her that they knew where she lives. http://lacigreen.tumblr.com/post/26843554247/hey-peeps-i-am-going-to-be-taking-a-break-from https://twitter.com/gogreen18
This is not okay. This is terribly not okay. This is the exact opposite of okay.
I am not a regular viewer of her videos, because I am not really her target audience. However, I will do anything I can to make sure that nobody shuts her up or shuts her down.
She is a vital part of the youtube community. She provides a much needed educational service for young people who get their questions answered in a non awkward and non threatening environment. We need her voice.
Now she is being bullied and threatened. We, who are also part of the youtube community will have to stand up and support her. Because if we keep quiet, cyber bullies and not so cyber ones will think they can get away with this sort of behavior. Because being a target of threats like these can happen to anyone of us. And because it is the decent human thing to do.
So let me say: I am not okay with this and Laci has my utmost support.
Will you say it with me? I hope you will.
