Woman Rats Out Internet Trolls To Their Moms

Telling someone’s mom about their poor behavior is usually a good way to get them to stop. That’s the logic Amanda Kleinman used when dealing with internet trolls. Kleinman got caught up in the “Pizzagate” fake news conspiracy because her band had performed at the Washington restaurant at the center of the bogus claims. As a result, conspiracy theorists publicized her address, sent messages to her employer, and threatened her. After calling police and speaking to the media, Kleinman took matters into her own hands. She found her most vile harassers on Facebook and sent their mothers private messages telling them their children had been rude. No word on if her method stopped the harassment. (Washington Post)
